Another one left to my own design as I have already made the only 6 designs they showed in the film with 3 doubled to make the 9.

I chose Gondorian armour as my inspiration for this Wraith though technically he would be Numenorean (Elendil was the first Numenorean King), a race that created Gondor after their island home of Numenor was destroyed when the world changed from a flat disc into a globe.. scratch (yeah gets pretty confusing and weird!), well some of the Numenoreans did, they were called The Faithful and worked with the Elves (who had granted them far longer lives than normal mortals and taller stature, Elendil was 7' tall apparently..in thanks for fighting with them in some war about something at some point..). The other Numenoreans became the Black Numenoreans who despised the Elves for their immortality and chose to worship the 'The Dark' at Sauron's promise that it would provide them power and longer lives; turns out it didn't really as they all got massacred fighting for the Witch King Of Angmar a 100years later although some surviving descendants became the Haradrim.

I kept the wings motif that Gondor Armour uses on everything plus the full plate armour with mail kama/skirt they use. I then went a bit 'Clive Barker' on that foundation so you may see the odd nod to Cenobytes even though Wraith have no 'Flesh to tear apart!'

#LOTR #kitbash #wraith #fantasy
My own design as he is no.7 out of 9 and they only designed six for some reason, just doubled a few up.
He's inspired by Chinese and European culture but in the fiction of Middle Earth I like to think he came from a race of humans that raised dragons (Smaug being an example of dragons existing in Middle Earth)  hence all the dragon iconography on his armour. What appears as a scythe could be a 'shepard's crook' but for dragons, either to subdue them catching it in a nostril to pull their heads down like a bull ring or to grab parts of the dragon's scales allowing riders to mount them like climbing axes which could then be used as melee weapons when airborne if needed. The weighted chain would also have been used to subdue smaller/younger dragons by throwing and wrapping it around a leg or neck whilst the beast was in flight or caged (similar to how the Sami  catch and heard reindeer). Once Sauron had corrupted their king and conquered them, the dragons were bred with dark powers that made them the Fell Beasts that the Wraith would later ride to the skies with searching for The One Ring. The "skull" is just a helm for the Wraith's form as these Wraith are still trying to cling to their former identities before they become completely absorbed by Sauron's power which is why they appear different to the later classic Black Riders of LOTR.

The other Wraith builds and a very long WIP thread!

Search in: General Talk  Topic: Reaper Wraith The Hobbit Dol Guldur Battle   Replies: 16  Views: 782
Carrying on from my thread on OSW which would be page 25 now, this is the 14th figure in this run (done plenty of other LOTR custom builds before) and the 7th Wraith. Since they only designed 6 Wraith in The Hobbit TBOFA even though they showed 9 (they doubled up a few designs and hoped we wouldn't notice for some reason..) I get to have fun designing the last three from scratch while staying in the spirit (no pun intended) of the already built Wraith, this one I'll call the Asian Reaper due to the armour I'm using mixed with a more European Grim Reaper vibe as I just think it will be a cool look for one of these Wraith that still seem to be hanging onto their cultural roots at this point before they become the classic Nine of the LOTR trilogy.
Tore the armour apart and straightened it in hot and cold water ready for paint after removing any laces.
