    For those of you who have been following the development of our conceptual Nazgul armour suits, I present our latest complete set. This piece features WK elements (arms and legs) with a custom cuirass with fauld, sabatons that resemble the Batmobile, and a nasty war helm. Please forgive the abundance of images, and the subsequent load times, we thought the set was rather photogenic.

    When designing the helmet (as depicted in the drawings), details from the WK war mask, and Sauron's helmet were employed. The client kept giving direction as the drawings evolved, and this is what we ended with. The helmet spires (like a king's crown), embrace a multiple lamed crainial dome. Vision is aided by nasal holes, and the 'tusks' articulate on the mount points.

    We're quite happy with how this turned out, and keep watch for more exciting conceptual sets, the next of which will be unveiled in the coming months. Thanks for looking.

    Mind-boggling Scott, as usual... :)

    Each iteration of your Nazgûl armour grows more complex, at least visually. The helmet turned out great.
    One of these days I'll finish my own - much humbler - "nasal crown" helmet.

    Very nice. All the projecting points make me think of the Shrike from Dan Simmons' Hyperion books.

    Haven't been keeping up - how are you producing that patina on the metal - or is it just the natural result of the working process? Looks great.

    Personally I dont care for the helmet design (reminds me of a chicken), although it is well executed, but that suit is just absolutely outstanding... Great work Scott. The attention to detail and way in which you bring all these pieces together is simply stunning.

    Thanks all for the very kind words and thoughts on the piece, we're most appreciative of the feedback. In 16, 18, and 20 gauge steel, the set weighs in around 60 lbs, but that is not 'dead weight' and is distributed well, so it's not really weight that is the hindrance to locomotion. It's certainly not a horseback suit of armour by any means, speaking of which, we'll be revealing a wild set of horse armour soon too. The black acid (phosphoric) patina finish is brushed on and the raised ridges are burnished for effect.

    Thanks again for all the comments, this suit has been in the work for the past couple of months, and it was a great moment to see it incarnate and together.
