The Nine are abroad

Then he looked about him, as if the hedges might have ears. "Nazgul," Radagast whispered. "The Nine are abroad again, Gandalf. They have crossed the River secretly and are moving westward. They have taken the guise of riders in black."



In years past, before the evil that is Finecast walked the land, Games Workshop forged many fine figures in metal. But alas, that is no longer so. Finecast has risen up and cast a spell over Games Workshop. If one wishes to purchase these ancient artifacts, one must search far and wide.

I spent almost over a year searching for all Nine poses of the Ringwraiths. I picked up 5 to start, these were from the Attack at Weathertop set. These poses are the most common. The other 4 are harder to find. I've had them for a month or so, and just finished the last 4. So here you go.












The great thing about Ringwraiths is the paint up ridiculously easy. Paint black, metal bits and dry brush grey. Looking back at the pictures, they look better in real life. The grey highlights on the black robes doesn't show up well in the photographs.

Now I have to get mounted versions. There are only 3 poses for the mounted wraiths. I also need to get some of the named wraiths. I really like those figures as well.

Cheers, Xin
