Scent of a Gamer

From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.

Radagast the brown

This a version of Radagast produced by Games Workshop during the gap between the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit film trilogies. This is the man before he received the Peter Jackson treatment.

I enjoyed Sylvester McCoy’s turn as Radagast in those films, but I always liked this version of the wizard who doesn’t really help. Presumably he just got high and wandered off.

Okay maybe McCoy’s version is the more accurate, but I still like this figure.

    I’m with you on the “Peter Jacksoning” of the LotR characters. So he got spot on, others … well Radagast.

    Loved that version, because it made a really good amber wizard for Fantasy.

    Nice figures- ~I like the subdued, earthy pallette used on him.

    This is a classic sculpt and many people prefer this one to the Hobbit version of Radagast. I like both and I think you did a great painting this wizard 🙂
