If you see favorites, he already did favorite them. Too bad Uni/Legendary probably won't care.

Hmm, that Orgrim poster is apparently connected to that Orgrim statue promotion.



Perhaps that 312 lb weight is the weight of the statue, rather than the character?

Uh, a poster depicting the weight of a promotional statues weight? You've gotta admit thats stretching it, particularly with no source.

I do not really have to admit anything, my dear. I merely brought out yet one another possibility, not discussed its probability. Different things, wholly. Nevertheless, I agree it would be weird at best, I have seen weirder, however.

As for no source? We have no source it refers to the weight of the character either, bar common sense. Which often ends a dubious source at best.

Come now, friend, there is no need to bristle like a porcupine over a turn of phrase. Let's dispense with the summary verbal riposting for a moment, shall we?

You also misunderstand my claim of no source, I merely wish to know where you found the information that connected that statue to the poster.

Pardon me, I simply enjoy such an exchange. No hard feelings, nor anything personal.

As for the source.

Of course, no harm done by any means. We should all be well aware the internet is not a great vessel for conveying texts inflection.

As for the source though, we cannot draw much from it but given the lack of context we can't even be sure it's an official movie poster. It could just as easily be something the cinema put together to go with the statue. Nowhere else on the net is coming up with a hit for that poster and i'd have expected a tweet or similiar with it at least. I also have a little background in design and my significant other (who worked in the animation field) assures me its not a very complex design for anyone with photoshop or Indesign to produce.

So, really those stats could be completely made up by someone just looking at the guy and having a guess. Could even explain the Frostwolf change.

True.

Anyway, you might have a point, however, the poster is official in relation to the ArcLight Cinemas tour, that much is clear.


But of course, it might have been ArcLight Cinemas themselves who have made it, hence inclination for an error high enough.

We do not know if drinking actually does not happen. It is not shown in the movie, that does not mean it does not happen, however.

Also, in the original Warlords of Draenor artwork, Gul'dan has green eyes instead of red.

I'm pretty sure the last thing they'll do is pull a BvS.... I hope.
Although if they show Medivh ablaze with a big fire beard, I don't think there's much to be alarmed since people will think that's his "super form" without context.

I remember people arguing that medieval armor should be "dirty, used, scarred, etc." and not all shiny and pretty.

I think those images are quite good in that it seems authentic, something a knight might use, and has indeed already seen some use.

That's because Hollywood fed all the people lies with "historical movies". Just look at Ironclad. Or rather, here's a vid of a guy picking out everything historically wrong -

Definitely not. A good knight would keep his armor polished.

Seeing those close ups, I would say the armor looks quite good actually. Some have expressed it looks too plastic, but I would not say so going by these pics. I also wonder if the dark color is meant to invoke some exotic material, such as dark iron.

A proper knight would actually have one piece of armour used in battle, that wouldn't be very impressive nor especially decorated, because that adds unecessary weight and hinders mobility. That's not to say he wouldn't keep it polished and proper, but it wouldn't look much different from the average foot soldier's armour. And then there's the ridicolous ceremonial get up, that is retardedly flamboyant and completely unusable in battle if your ambition is to end up the victor.

But the good thing about Warcraft is that it isn't realistic.

That's a ceremonial armor



That's how knightly armor probably looked.

Knights were pretty much taught how to keep armor nice and clean and take care of it long before they were allowed to wear it. Or if they didn't do it personally their squire did. It was part of the prestige of being a knight that separated you from the common soldiers. You had clean shiny armor before a battle that showed you were someone important.

Total realism kinda goes out of the window in this setting anyway where magical enchantments on armor and all kinds of incredibly strong materials to make it out of. I'm like 95% certain at one point The Last Guardian makes reference to Lothar's sword being enchanted, so even back there weapon enchantments were probably a thing.

Also the fact that boobplate is seemingly a canon thing that has no adverse effect on the wearer whereas in real life there has been all kinds of science done as to why it would just get her killed easier.
