The Hobbit: Dol Guldur Nazgûl - how will they look?

Howdy Guys and Girls :)

Today I want to give you a (potential) look at the upcoming Nazgûl of Dol Guldur models - we finally got rules for them, and now I want to try to assign them to the Weta Workshop movie CGI models.

I need to admit, I was pretty shocked when I saw that they only did seven "titles" for them, but it looks like Weta only did six unique ringwraiths for the movie - so it's no fault on GW's part. It's not really easy to make them out from the movie alone, as they are moving pretty fast - well, let's take a look at the CGI models!

Nazgûl of Dol Guldur

Pictures 1-3:
The Abyssal Knights. Two Nazgûl of the same name, who are able to effortlessly interchange with each other. They are armed with an elven blade.

Pictures 4-6:
The Witch-King of Angmar. We all know that guy!

Picture 7-9:
The Slayers of Men. Two Nazgûl of the same name again, armed with maces. It seems also that this model is used again for 'The Lingering Shadow', but with a sword instead.

The Last Three

Pictures 10-12:
Khamûl the Easterling.

Pictures 13-15:
The Forsaken with his trident spear.

Pictures 16-18:
His title is 'The Dark Headsman'.

As a huge fan of the Nazgûl I'm looking forward to see them in mini form, but it's still a bit sad to be stuck with only 7 unique sculpts. I probably prefer the old unique GW Nazgûl!
