A Christmas gift voucher was spent on the Ringwraiths of Angmar set. This features the two named Nazgul, the Dwimmerlaik and the Tainted, that look most like the generic Black Riders that feature in the movies.
I'm not massively fussed about using the named versions of the Ringwraiths, this one is the Tainted, but at least these two match up with the incidental Angmar force of Wights, Wolves, Spectres and Orcs that the Quest of the Ringbearer will force me to paint.
I also get a tiny bit of nerd-rage at some of these names. For example, Dwimmerlaik (above) is not a name, it's the word used by Eowyn to address the Witch King, possibly just meaning spirit or ghost.
As a word in Rohirric, it certainly makes no sense being used in Angmar and Arnor.
Disengage nerd-rant mode.
Both models come with dismounts which clearly look like the Riders, which will be helpful. Matt has had an increasingly hard time remembering which one is which as the numbers of Nazgul have increased in the games.
In terms of painting, nothing fancy again. Black contrast, drybrushed grey and washed with Nuln Oil (after metal and leather has been picked out) does the trick.
They're so fast to do that I've actually forgiven to do the eyes on the Tainted's horse in my haste.
Although I'd really like to cross off the 'finish an army you've already started' box on my Hobby Bingo card, technically I can't. I do have nine mounted Nazgul complete, but I only have eight dismounts.
This is almost certainly enough to play the Flight to the Ford scenario, but it's not complete. What's more, two of my Black Riders are not official models. Although they are fine, they're not right and the 'army' isn't complete.
I'll have to console myself with getting back in the black.
