Summoned from beyond the grave by their master’s will, the Ringwraiths rose to challenge the White Council in the tangled ruins of Dol Guldur. Spectral, formless beings, the nine Wraiths could not be seen by mortal eyes lest they robed themselves to walk among the living. The Elves and Istari of the White Council perceived beyond the limits of mortal sight, and to them the Nazgûl appeared as warriors, clad for battle in black mail and plate.
Second among the Nine was Khamûl, who had been a king among the peoples of the East. In war he bore a great, spiked mace and a helm made in the fashion of an Easterling warrior, though richly engraved and crowned with wide, curling horns.
BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND
Weta Workshop is proud to announce the return of its Helm series. Each 1:4 scale Helm is made from polystone and comes in an edition of just 750.
Working with original designer Daniel Falconer, 3D artist Mauro Santini has captured this fearsome horned Helm using digital software.
Though the Wraiths had previously been portrayed as pale kings in 'Ring vision,' the film's director wanted them to assume new forms, as if spiritually armoured for battle. The helmet (of Khamûl) would be much more richly engraved than the standard Easterling soldier.
Accompanying your Limited Edition helm: an exclusive behind-the-scenes insert written by Weta Workshop senior concept designer and author, Daniel Falconer, detailing how the film version was brought to the big screen!

Weta Workshop’s high-quality Middle-earth collectibles are designed by the very same artists and technicians who work on our film projects. It takes 400-500 hours to design, sculpt, model make, mold, and paint the prototype for each new piece. Whether it be a prop replica, beautiful environment or iconic character, we treat our collectibles with the same level of care and attention to detail that we bring to our film work.
