The Necromancer of Dol Guldur

The Necromancer of Dol Guldur. Later to be revealed by the Wise to be Sauron, the Dark Lord, returned to Middle Earth, some 2000 years after his defeat by the forces of The Last Alliance. Yet still not yet able to fully take physical form.

Eventually the The White Council assembled and attacked Dol Guldur, forcing the Necromancer to flee to East, where he would build his strength once more before returning to Mordor, and rebuilding his fortress of Barad Dur, in readiness for the battles of the War of the Ring, at the end of the Third Age.

Sadly at the time, the Wise of the White Council did think to destroy the fortress of Dol Guldur, and this once more was re-occupied by Ringwraiths, led by Khamul the Easterling.

I must admit I was a little disappointed by the quality of the cast parts of this model. There was a huge mis-alignment between the front and rear halves that needed extensive greenstuff puttying to hide the gap.

But once this work was done the model has painted up nicely.

I now have a suitable figure to lead my forces of Dol Guldur.


  1. Nice model, I am about to starting... What colours did you use?

  2. Hi

    I would quite like to know which green you used as well.
    Please could you post and let us know!?


  3. Hi guys.
    I use a mix of GW and Foundry paints.
    For this model, I black undercoated, then did metallic areas TinBitz, then Bolt Gun. Then worked up from dark green for robes. I think I dry brushed heavily with a 50/50 mix of dark angels green and black. Then used dark angels green. Then did edging in Scorpion Green. Finally whole model was washed in GW green wash. I think its called Thraka Green. Hope this helps.

  4. How big is this model from base to top of his head? I read that it's on a 40mm base; thinking of using it as a proxy for something else and I need the height before I can make a decision. Cheers~

    1. From the top of the plastic base to the top of the spikes on the crown is 6cm.

    2. Thanks for the info mate. Sadly it's a bit smaller than I expected, but I still may pick it up, as it is a superb looking model. Happy gamings~
