    My Scratch Built Custom Haradrim Wraith finished Outdoors Pics.

    Again from "The Hobbit:The Battle Of Five Armies" and the specific battle of Dol Guldur.
    A lot more natural materials in this guy due to the nature of the armour being originally wicker/raffia with wooden stakes etc.. I made him a real Sikh turban after learning how to do it on You Tube just for this build, took about 150cm (5ft) of material to do it just in 1/6! There are real silver parts and plenty of Indian jewellery bits incorporated into the build as well. His daggers are called Katars and of Indian origin used by the Rajput warriors, the trident is my version of what he used in the movie but more practical, the movie design was just odd with three Moro Kris blades attached at weird angles to a long spike. He's a mix of Indo-Persian (please don't start that whole Greco-Roman argument again...), North African and Asian influences (it is mentioned that PJ's team were inspired by the Aztecs and Polynesian tribes but I can't see that in their design at all personally).

    For many years, the Haradrim were the greatest enemy of Gondor. Several times, they invaded the north. Finally, the Men of Gondor were able to capture Harad, though it was later freed. During the War of the Ring the Haradrim were allied with Sauron. A Haradrim warrior wounded Faramir. At the Battle of the Pelennor Fields, the 18,000 Haradrim were a great threat to the Rohirrim that had come to aid the people of Minas Tirith. During the onslaught a Haradrim chieftain, who bore the standard of a black serpent on a scarlet field, led the Haradrim cavalry. King Théoden of Rohan slew him in single combat.[3]
    Once Sauron was destroyed, the Haradrim, Variags, and Easterlings disbanded from the Black Gates and out of Mordor, and became dispersed.
    The lands of the Haradrim lie to the south of Gondor past the river Poros. These hardy people lived in one of the harshest environments in Middle-earth. In the land south of Gondor, the sun beat down unrelentingly, cooking much of Haradwaith into desert.
    Haradrim towns and cities presumably existed nearer to the coast where fish and sea trade allowed a more urban existence, as well as a haven for pirates and corsairs.
    Reference pics of Wraith and Hardrim warriors:













    My build thread can be found here for this and many more WIP LOTR/Hobbit figures.

    For now they seem to be content to hang around my custom built Grim Reaper/Wraith sniper rifle!

    They keep me going lol. Think I missed a detail or two in the pics there like his wrist spikes and those on the back of the biceps. Cheers Stryker!

    Thanks again Roger! Already started throwing bits together to make the next one, the Rohirrim/Viking Wraith, or my interpretation of it.

    really like the level of detail on the figures, especially the guy on the right with the hammer-axe-club-thing seems the right tool when you absolutely have to make sure no ones standing back up again

    Thanks PM! I just noticed he's got a bit of a scorpion vibe going on which is quite appropriate for a desert based wraith!
