The changes that i am suggesting are the folowing :
-An Elbow Guard for his spell casting arm, in the form of a Iron Crown sigil
-Longer hair both in front of his head thats splits on two sides and longer hair on his back
-increased mass of fur for his shoulder area, similar to Ring-Theoden
-A Faceguard similar to a circlet, keeping his hair in place while also protecting his forhead and cheecks, without severely reducing his vision

Explanation: I wanted to make this model suggestion as a means of diffrentiating Zaphagor from other Angmar heroes,especially Mormanath,by adding some details beside the hair colour difference and size. First of all explaining the elbow guard and headguard. In Edain Team character bio Zaphagor is described as a former Arnorian soldier turned traitor and now a warrior-sorrcerer with un-natural healing properties who serves the Witch-King,The Headgear and elbowguard protect his vital spellcasting points while still beign rather light, thus no full plate and no nose guard,but alows easier movoment and clearer sight for spellcasting.The idea for more light armor is to protect the parts where he will probably be attacked the most- if you cant kill him because he heals to quick, at least stab, crack or shoot at his unprotected head or lightly armored hand to silenc him for a while. Also the Upper part of the headgear is a parody of the royal arnorian helm, replaced by iron crown iconography, with the intent to provoke former brothers-in-arms while in battle. The longer hair shows Zaphagor as more barbaric oposed to the elegant Mormanath, and the extended fur would make him apear bigger on top, rather then in the waist further enhancing his savage side, carelessnes of any other thing than battle.A more pale face with scars and darker skin arount his eyes would show that dark gifts of the Witch King come at a terible price.

The inspiration for this suggestion comes from Adamins concept artwork and the basic idea from two actors that i imagined as Zaphagors role when i read his story :

Vladimir Kulich as Buliwyf Geekshizzle.com

Clancy Brown as the Kurgan Vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net

I know that he looks like Arthas, but i think it is imposible to differentiate because Zaphagor was initialy released in Lich King armor thus creating a Halo Effect for all future renditions.

Crtas za medalju Luka! :)
Nadam se da ce ET bar baciti pogled na ovo...
Steta je velika sto garda Anuminasa nije integrisana u edain mod, mislim da ti je to najbolji rad do sada i da u Arnor frakciji ima mesta za tu jedinicu. Moraturi su takodje po mom misljenju mnogo bolje osmisljeni nego trenutne herojske jedinice u Angmaru. Sve u svemu, odradio si veoma motivisano ove stvari, svaka cast. Nadam se da ce bar nesto biti integrisano u edain jednog dana.

Pozdrav
