That tells you everything about Khamul. He commanded the Fortress of Dol Guldor after Sauron came out of hiding and returned to Mordor. He was second in command in the Nazgul. Article says the rest

The Witch King of Angmar is the best Ringwraith of them all. He may have died but it was a pretty cool death.

Ah but they all 'died' in the end, he just kicked the bucket a few days before them.

I'm going to have go with the Witch King, he's the only one with any real character- I don't hold with GW making up fluff for the Tolkien-verse.

Apart from Khamul-he had character apart from the witchking. Plus I always liked the easterlings in general-models and ruleswise.


I have recently started a new Blog. I would really appreciate it if you would LOOK AT IT

I'm gonna give a little love to the standard Ringwraith, they just aren't as scary if they have a story and you know who they are and what they'll do.

I KNEW THAT SOMEDAY I WAS GONNA DIE / AND I KNEW BEFORE I DIED TWO THINGS WOULD HAPPEN TO ME / THAT NUMBER ONE I WOULD REGRET MY ENTIRE LIFE / AND NUMBER TWO I WOULD WANT TO LIVE MY LIFE OVER AGAIN

My favorite is the undying for the model (the only nazgul with a staff) and (if you take two wraiths like i always do) gains 1 point of will for each spell cast (by the other one), plus he has the same amount of will as the witch king

The Betrayer, a twisted untrustworthy evil git. I cannot think of a more fitting personification for evil.

Also model wise he is the only ringwraith who fits with my Mahud army
