Eagles would be great. What about Eowyn? Do you happen to remember if this set had a female minifig? (I guess you would've mentioned it, but I figured it wouldn't hurt to ask.) As io9 put it the other day, LOTR is a bit of a sausage fest. I know LEGO has been as well (although they've been really doing a good job of changing lately with some great figs), but I'm hoping that's not the case here. I really hope Eowyn makes it into this set. Her doing battle with the Witch King Nazgul was a scene burned in my memory from the Rankin Bass cartoon, the books, and the Peter Jackson films.
Eowyn was not at the Black Gate. She fought in the Battle of the Pellenor Fields, at Minis Tirith. When they marched to the Black Gate, she was stuck in the Houses of Healing with Faramir.
