Radagast's Sleigh

Mon Jun 23, 2014 1:20 pm

I never really liked the idea of Radagast's sleigh turning him into a big combat machine. I view Radagast as more of a pacifist who fights his enemies through an indirect manner. I wanted him to be able to outrun warg riders which is why I made him faster. I was also very much inspired by this conversion in the link below and wish to make one similar:

Radagast with Sleigh SPECIAL RULES:

Rhosgobel Rabbits: To dismount Radagast one must kill 3/4 of his rabbits. Each have 1 wound with a defence of 4. His movement is 12"/30cm. Otherwise, Radagast acts as a normal cavalry figure.

Woodland Creature.

Points Cost: 20

What do you guys think?

Defence 4 rabbits? Better than Hobbits and basic humans.
How many rabbits exactly? It depends on who makes it as to how many rabbits get put on.

Otherwise, works well.

I would have 4 rabbits, just like the picture. I say that you have to kill 3 of them, as it requires at least 2 to pull the sleigh. Isn't a horse and Gollum Defence 4? I wanted them to be a bit durable, however D3 may be more appropriate...

Rather than a special rule, you're better off just re-writing their profile.

Perhaps something like this:

M 12 F 0/6+ S 2 D 4 A 1 W 3 C 3

Woodland Creature

Covers all the things you want to change, and Floi can't ruin your day. ;)

EDIT: Forgot to mention, I love when people reference that conversion. Having played against it personally, and borrowed it once, it's even better in real life! (Magnets woo!)

Thanks for the ideas! Your friend made that? Wow, do you have anymore shots of it? I'd like to see more detailed pictures for when I make my own conversion.

Here's the only other photo I could find:

The only problem is he made it before the model came out, so technically the base size is wrong.
