    My Finished Custom Rohirrim Wraith (The Hobbit) Outdoor Pics

    This is the fourth one based on a Rohirrim king (of Rohan) who was one of the nine mortal men Sauron gifted with a ring of power. Like king Theoden he was corrupted by evil but with no chance of redemption as Sauron's One Ring fed his greed and hate through his own ring until his spirit was turned black and bonded with the ring and Mordor. Now living as an undead corporeal form but still with traits from his Rohirrim ancestry in this guise he tries to steal an Elven ring of power from Gandalf with his other eight Wraith kinsmen at Dol Guldur but unexpectedly they then have to face Lord Elrond and Saruman The White while Lady Galadriel protects an unconscious Gandalf.
    The Riders Of Rohan were Rohirrim and their designs heavily based on Celtic and Viking culture, clothing, armour, weapons etc.. which is why this Wraith has a very Viking look to him but more of a fantasy Viking as I was heavily influenced by the film "Pathfinder" and the Viking portrayed by Clancy Brown. I also used the "The Hobbit: TBOFA" reference pics of this particular Wraith to shape my design but wasn't happy with some of the original design choices as they looked far too Elvish to be a mortal Rohirrim king, I believe these characters might have been rushed a bit as they only seem to have created six designs for the nine wraith, so a few were doubled up in the battle scene which was quite short.

    Sorry didn't bring them all outside this time for a group shot as we've been having torrential downpours recently. Has anyone else noticed that my Wraith seem to be an insect/arachnid theme? Mantis, beetle, scorpion and now tarantula? Must be subconscious! LOL.

    Well it's a relief to know my builds aren't too predictable! Cheers GF!

    Thank you Stryker! I thought a wolf theme would be a lot more intimidating than the typical Rohirrim horse theme, call it artistic license and it ties in the fur a lot better!

    Inspired and inspiring. I also,really like the wolf details. It's always cool to see what you come up with. This one is very menacing.

    Just a reminder as to what these guys are all about and inspired from, scenes from The Hobbit : The Battle Of Five Armies, the battle at Dol Guldur:

    Thanks Delanie! Sacrificed a WOW figure for some and made casts of my silver 1/1 wolf head rings for others.

    Cheers! A 23mgp camera using the "open camera" app helps a lot too!
