A Live Action Re-Enactment Of The Hobbit's Battle Of Five Armies

There are lots of different games based on the writings of J. R. R. Tolkien, games that allow players to participate in classic battles from the books, such as the Battle of Five Armies from The Hobbit.

But there's nothing like the smell of nerdiness in the air as you and your costumed compatriots battle it out in live action, and LARPers in the Czech Republic don't mess around when it comes to re-enactments.

They staged an epic Battle Of Five Armies in a forest near the town of Doksy, Czech Republic, but this wasn't your average duct tape and cardboard LARPing crowd- these guys came to fight hard in detailed costumes and full makeup.

Photographer David W. Cerny was on the scene when the most epic battle in LARP history took place, and a good time was had by the several hundred who took part in the event, although it proved to be a bit too much fun for some.
