Radagast the Brown

Here is my latest model from The Hobbit range, Radagast the Brown. This is probably my favourite of the Hobbit releases so far. It’s a really elegant sculpt and the little model of Sebastian (the stricken hedgehog aided by Radagast in the film) really adds something to the spirit of the piece.

Because in the film Radagast’s robes are all very similar in tone I decided not to try and replicate the look from the film exactly as it would result in a very boring, undefined miniature; what works as a costume on film doesn’t necessarily work on a 25mm model, it’s just a question of scale. With models like this I think that the overall effect is more important than exact verisimilitude to the film. However, hopefully my paint job captures something of the essence of the character.
