When the battle was lost, Húrin and Huor took a stand fighting off the Orcs, allowing Turgon to escape. Huor and all the Men of Dor-lómin were slain, but Húrin fought with his battle-axe until his axe withered, he was buried under a mountain of slain Orcs and Trolls. Húrin was then bound alive by Gothmog Lord of Balrogs and brought captive to Angband.

Of few depictions of Hurin's Last Stand, this one is truly beautiful. It captures the last heroic-ness of the battle, and I appreciate the grim rage of Hurin knowing he's literally gonna fight to the death.
Hahaha, well, no, I didn't mean that xD I like that in the end he stands alone against so many enemies and yet he has the guts to yell that "Day will come again!"... it's full of despair, but also faith in the future, and that's why I like it
