    This is a recolouring of Kindred72's Inquisitor unit. Use as your average Evil Henchman.


    The sounds can be improved, now the ini just point to knight sounds...

    That is, in fact, a black rider, no? The nazghul being the dragony-thing they ride later on in the book.

    Nah.

    They're both Nazgul. "Black Riders", "The Nine" - they're a bunch of undead kings 'of old' that serve Sauron. The flying thing is a Fell Beast.

    yeah, nazguls, i'm sure, is simply the name of the actual 'riders' or wraiths

    Excellent color conversion. I may use this for the "Odin" summon in my FF mod. And yes, the 9 ringwraiths are the Nazgul.

    Still my favorite series of books (even though I haven't re-read them yet this year). :D

    Love it. Could be a king unit for my wraith king. Can't wait for LotM to be done.

    Yes, even rarer than the Loch Ness Monster or Bigfoot. It's nice to know he's still around from time to time. My FF mod's defensive unit line would be much less complete without his Amazon Archer and Tomb Raider units.

    Hey, mrtn, could you do the same thing(darken the unit) with the wyvern rider from the WH mod? That would make a good fell beast.

    Maybe you could just colour the rider dark and give some colour to the horse.

    Hey, I've been raiding Rohan for weeks stealing the blackest horses I could find, if the Nazgul don't like it they can walk. :p

    @Kindred: I'm glad you approve. :)

    Thanks for praise everyone. :)

    Hehe, I love the simple conversion, but after citizen001 pointed it out some coloure would be nice, isn't it possible to just give the horse red specks of eyes?

    Mr. Do, if you want to add 1072 red specks you're welcome to do it yourself. :p

    1072 red specks... I'd do it myself but I don't want to be able to take credit for making a good unit great, it might make you feel inadequate ;)
