Three more dwarves have been revealed in a new set of exclusive images released from the set of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.

Today's release, seen first exclusively on Stuff.co.nz, includes the first look at Stephen Hunter as Bombur, James Nesbitt as Bofur and William Kircher as Bifur.

While most of the Company of Thorin Oakenshield is related to the royal and noble line of Durin, Bofur, his brother Bombur and their cousin Bifur most definitely are not.

Born and bred in the West, descendants of coal miners and iron workers, they have joined the Quest for the Lonely Mountain partly to seek their fortune and partly because they were told the beer was free.

Images of the 13 dwarves involved in the first Hobbit film are being released in stages this month.

Already revealed are John Callen as Oin, Peter Hambleton as Gloin, Mark Hadlow as Dori, Jed Brophy as Nori and Adam Brown as Ori.

Another photo shows Dean O'Gorman as Fili and Aidan Turner as Kili.

Thirteen dwarves accompany Bilbo the hobbit, played by Martin Freeman, in the two-part film, which is due for release on December 14, 2012.
