Khamûl the Easterling is perhaps the most noteworthy of the Nazgul outside of the Witch King of Angmar himself. Did you know, for example, that he’s the only Ringwraith, apart from the aforementioned Witch King, named by Tolkien in the books? And did you know that, in The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring™, the Ringwraith that hunts Frodo at the beginning of the story is Khamûl? Indeed, following the death of his superior, Khamûl the Easterling would go on to lead the Nazgûl at the Battle of the Black Gate.
Khamûl the Easterling’s latest miniature depicts him as he appears during The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies™. In this incarnation, he’s clad in ornate armour similar to that worn by the other Easterlings and should look right at home with the rest of your Nazgûl.
This Ringwraith is headed to the Forge World site next year! Khamûl the Easterling would make a great companion with the new Middle Earth Battle Companies book now available from Games Workshop for all you Hobbit fans out there:
An expansion for the Middle-earth™ Strategy Battle Game, this 80-page hardback allows you to assemble a small warband and, over the course of many linked games, watch as its members gain experience, learn skills and become battle-hardened.
