The Fellowship of the Ring Scenario Project Pt4: The Black Riders – Mounted Nazgûl completed (June-It ’18)

“Nine Lords there were, and after the return of their Master, which they aided and prepared in secret, they grew strong again. Then the Nine Riders issued forth from the gates of horror, and we could not withstand them. Do not approach their citadel. You will be espied. It is a place of sleepless malice, full of lidless eyes. Do not go that way!” – Faramir, The Forbidden Pool, The Two Towers

In a case almost exactly like the previous post, this one is a rehash of another super-recent post about Nazgûl. A few days ago I finished seven of The Nine, and then managed to find two more mounted models. In the last couple of days, I’ve raced against time to complete the final pair, so I’m showing them here alongside their dark brethren as a completed set of Nine mounted Nazgûl, which have use in a variety of games, but I’ve been working on specifically for The Fellowship of the Ring Scenario Project.

The final pair.

With only 3+1 sculpts for “standard” mounted Nazgûl from GW, these last two were always going to be duplicate sculpts. Unfortunately, they’re both the same sculpt – so now I have four of the same base rider in a set of Nine, which is a little unfortunate. I mean, it is my favourite of the non-Witch King sculpts, but I’d still much rather have had 3-3-2-1 than 4-2-2-1. Even with some arm variation, it’s become quite repetitive.

Finally, here they all are – multibased for Kings of War. In their present form of “basic” Nazgûl, I’ll likely use the Vampiric Cavalry rules for them. When I next get around to playing. Ha!

“The Nazgûl were they, the Ringwraiths, the Enemy’s most terrible servants; darkness went with them, and they cried with the voices of death.” – Of the Rings of Power and the Third Age, The Silmarillion

I know, I know. The last few posts have been more than a little repetitive now. The fact of the matter is that I’ve managed to complete the last four of the Nazgûl on Foot, so I’m posting up the Nine of them now. I’m attempting to also get the last two mounted Nazgûl done today. I need to finish the paint in the next couple of hours in order to be able to varnish them so that the varnish is (mostly) cured by tomorrow, so I can then photograph them for the blog and “final” photo of them.

These models do at least provide the first newly-completed unit for The Fellowship of the Ring Scenario Project. They also count as a completed unit for this month’s June-It Unit challenge. Now I’ve got to go and try to finish those mounted ones, as well as 7 additional, unrelated figures that will give me two more completed units for the month.
