Today’s much-anticipated “first look” at two more Dwarves from The Hobbit come to us courtesy of TIME. And it is indeed high time we met Ken Stott as Balin and Graham McTavish as Dwalin.

Here follows the accompanying description of these Dwarves:

Dwarf Lords in their own right, Balin and Dwalin are close relatives of Thorin. Beyond this, these brothers are two of his most loyal and trusted friends.

An old warrior, Balin has lived through hard times and fought many battles, yet he harbors doubts about the wisdom of the Quest to retake the Lonely Mountain.

Dwalin has no such forebodings – his belief in Thorin’s leadership is unshakeable. A powerful and bruising fighter, with a natural tendency to distrust anyone who is not a Dwarf, particularly anyone who might be an Elf, Dwalin is not someone to cross lightly.
