    I won't say "you never cease to amaze me" cause it isn't amazing or surprising that you have great skills and models
    but I will say you never fail to impress me olofmoleman

    but though I am a lore-master of Lord of the Rings as many people are too, I won't pick on your work, it's cool, I think your Nazgul is fine

    Actually, the horses used for the Nazgul in the movie were probably genetically black, but many varieties of black horse can fade depending on things like exposure to sunlight to a "faded black" (dark brown) color, which is the color the horses actually were.

    This does look more like a chestnut color, though, which genetically has stronger red in the hair fibers. Maybe try shifting that area of the texture map slightly towards the yellow, and reducing saturation and lightness to more closely match the horses used for the movie production (possibly +10 hue, -20 saturation -20 lightness):

    Side-by side comparison

    Some other clear shots of them mounted:
    Front
    Side

    They also had a somewhat reflective piece of (probably) leather armor on thier head that you might emphasize by lightening that area of the texure map, if possible.
    Closeup of head

    Otherwise it's an excellent model and texturing job, and I look forward to seeing it being used in maps. :)

    I have to say, your pretty amazing, But there is one tiny problem, even this confused me when I read it in LoTR
    BlackRider=The guy on the horse.
    Nazgul=The guy on the black dragon.
    Ring Wraith=The guy on foot.
    Really this is a "Black Rider" model and not a "Nazgul" I had the same problem when I read the book :? Tolkien needed to do some clearing up there. But 5/5 excellent model and I have no complaints on the horses color.
    :D

    What are you talking about? They're all called the Nazgul, the Hobbits had nothing else to call it but a Black Rider, and the ones on foot were just Nazgul that Aragorn called Ring Wraiths. Because there was a few on horses we saw, and on foot, and there are only nine, so....
    Also I really like the model, but I think I'm going to try and recolor it a bit so the horse is all one color. People get so mad about colors...

    okay, something here is important- Who gives a crap about the lord of the rings history or the name when it comes to judging how cool a model is? :roll: the model LOOKS great :wink: thats what i care about

    Superb 5/5 :D awesome model!!! and about that question about nazguls :Nazguls or ring wraiths was first on horses but after confrontation with Gandalf's waves were horses downed so they mounted on fellbeasts(the two towers and return of the king) Witch king was also black rider but he has a fellbeast later when he was killed by Eowyn. :D

    Wow, Awesome as always Olof. Over 50% of my LoTR and Starwars models come from you. Lol you also never fail to jump on someone when they make a mistake in there posts. Keep up the good work.

    No you have it completly wrong, don't go around correcting people if you don't know your stuff.

    The Black Riders, Nazgul and Ring-Wraiths are all one and the same. The mountless Ring-Wraith is still a Nazgul. The "dragons" they are flying are simply refered to as Fel Beasts.
