Peter Jackson basically said that he wanted the orcs to be new better orcs and to be Saurons orcs and be more menacing and powerful looking; almost like the fighting Uruk-Hai that Saruman had made. In this the new orcs stood tall, for a reference of how tall these orcs were I'll use Lawrence Makoare (the man who played Gothmog,Lurtz, and the Witch King)and also a picture. Lawrence is 6 foot 4 inches tall. Not some little orc rabble. Saying this to prove my point that not all orcs walk like the hunch back of Notre Dame.
My main point is that one of the Orc sword and archer horde and Gothmog should have different animations. Orc swordsmen get Uruk Hai anims. Orc Archers would get the anims for Lurtz maybe with his bow drawn? Maybe crossbowmen but thet have crossbows not bows and arrows so might not work.And Gothmog would get Lurtz' anim when his sword is drawn. I wouldnt think it would be to difficult to do since theyve already been made. (Please correct me if I'm wrong)I just would love to see this incorporated to the Orc Hordes/Gothmog that attacked Minas Tirith (I forgot their proper names! Sorry!)And it would make the Elite orc units feel MORE like elite orc units! I think it would be awesome and if it's to much work thats fine! Just thought I'd throw in some of my ideas!
I've attached a picture of what Peter Jackson thought the new orcs should be like for proof that I'm not making this up!
Thanks for your time all!
P.S. sorry the pic is small, only on I could find
First orc is orc rabble middle is uruk hai last is the ROTK orc
