Missed the Fantasy Friday deadline, but here are two dangerous Nazgul types for my LOTR collection to terrify both the legions of Mordor and their foes. Both are Games Workshop figures. The one on the left is the King of the Nazgul when GW used to make metal figures. On the right is a plastic alternative rider for the Fell Beast that came in the Pelennor Fields boxed set I mentioned here recently. I decided to keep him, and found a caparisoned medieval horse in the lead mountain that promised to work well when painted black.
\Painting black is an art form that greatly intimidates me. I started with a Citadel Chaos Black spray undercoat, then highlighted in Vallejo German Gray, then added Folkart craft store indigo highlights, and finally some dry brushing as I finished the bases to suggest dust and dirt on the fabric. I think they’re reasonably spooky and unpleasant and should add some biting power to the hordes of Mordor.
I really think I should start work on that mounted Gandalf figure i have tucked away - I think he’ll be needed!
Cheers and blessings to your brushes!
