Middle-earth: Nazgûl of Dol Guldur

Yes, today the Witch-King of Angmar, the Nazgûl of Dol Guldur version, is finally finished (well yesterday I finished him). With the base, robes and armour done I now proudly present you the miniature! Further on I will show my first bit of progress on The Dark Headsman

The Witch-King of Angmar.

As you can see, the first Nazgûl of Dol Guldur is finished. Complete with the base which I gave a nice combination of colours to present the miniature standing on it in a good way.

Some parts I am very pleased with are the sword, the armour and the cloaks and fabric. I’m really happy with the balance and the palet I used. The colours on the mini really enhance each other. And even the spectral weapon (mind you, on the profile it’s just a sword) ,that’s definitely in contrast with the rest of the miniature, isn’t too much. It’s part of the finished product.

The Dark Headsman.

The Dark Headsman will be painted like the The Witch-King of Angmar but not too much, he will be a bit different tho: the shading of the armour will be done a bit different with some colours used more than others; the cloak will have a slightly different base layer; its spectral weapon will have the same base colours but again a slightly different look, probably more purple or green instead of the purple/blue hue of the The Witch-King’s weapon.

This I will do to add more personality to all the nine Nazgûl of Dol Guldur because I think the way they were painted by GW/Forgeworld (still really great painting) is a bit the same, a bit boring. And I just don’t want all of the nine to be looking the same (although there two times two versions of Ringwraith with the same armour and weaponry). And I am very convinced this will work as well.

This Friday will see an update on my Nazgûl work in progress, and probably a bit of another Middle-earth project as well!

See ya!
