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.


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.

  1. New series of helms
    Feel second rate compared to the original series of helms. I was really excited for weta to bring back the helm series I own every one of the original series and couldn\'t wait till I got the new ones. What a disappointment when they arrived they felt cheap and not in the same league as the original helms. If they were made the same way as the original ones I would have brought everyone. But couldn\'t bring myself to put them in the cabinet with the original series. You can\'t make a silk purse out of a sows ear.

  3. Amazing detail!
    When I received this helm in the mail I was struck by not only the size but the detail that goes into it as well! I also really like the stand and how the half sphere the helm sets on is rubber it’s very well done!
