Lord of the Rings: Nazgul by ThreshTheSky Lord of the Rings: Nazgul by ThreshTheSky
Witch King of Angmar from The Lord of the Rings

PLEASE READ BEFORE YOU COMMENT: YES this is a Nazgul. The Witch-King is the leader of the other eight Ringwraiths, also known as Nazgul, and is thus one of them. And NO, the dragon-like creatures they ride are not what are referred to as Nazgul. Those are described as Fellbeasts. Slow your roll, fellow nerds. I know what I'm talking about.

This fan-art request was won by oda37 from this raffle.

The Nazgul and LotR are property of their respective owners. The armor isn't entirely movie-accurate. But hey, I tried.

Thank you! I don't have extensive practice doing armor like I do for faces so I'm glad to hear you like the way it looks. 

Haha. Yeah, that terminology was an issue that come up a few times. :D

That disclaimer XD
I remember when I was first watching LOTR, back then it took me a while to realize that Nazgūl meant the ringwraiths and not their flying mounts :P
And the picture is awesomely done. +fav
