Found this fansite movie transcript, via TheOneRing.net... I love this scene... its the best put down one liner I have ever heard! ;-)
[The Company rides their ponies through a muddy forest as it rains. They all look cold, wet, and miserable.]
[Dori:] “Here, Mr. Gandalf, can’t you do something about this deluge?”
[Gandalf:] “It is raining, Master Dwarf, and it will continue to rain until the rain is done. If you wish to change the weather of the world, you should find yourself another wizard.”
[Bilbo:] “Are there any?”
[Bilbo:] “Other wizards?”
[Gandalf:] “There are five of us. The greatest of our order is Saruman, the White. Then there are the two Blue Wizards; you know, I’ve quite forgotten their names.”
[Bilbo:] “And who is the fifth?”
[Gandalf:] “Well, that would be Radagast, the Brown.”
[Bilbo:] “Is he a great Wizard or is he...more like you?”
[Gandalf looks slightly offended.]
[Gandalf:] “I think he’s a very great wizard, in his own way. He’s a gentle soul who prefers the company of animals to others. He keeps a watchful eye over the vast forest lands to the East, and a good thing too, for always Evil will look to find a foothold in this world.”
So here may I present Radagast the Brown... the Limited Edition figure from the Starter Hobbit boxed set...
I never really knew how to imagine Radagast, but I think PJ has done a wonderful visualization of the character and the choice of Sylvestor McCoy for the role is inspired...
I loved the initial scenes as he tries to save Sebastian, as the spiders rampage over his home of Rosgobel...
As for the rabbit pulled sleigh, at first thought its utter nonsense, and yet it just works so well... about as far from the canon as you could get, but I love it, and have ordered the model... :-)
As for this model, its great to see what wonderful poses can be achieved using plastic - Yes its a plastic figure!
I used various references for colours choices, both painted versions I have seen in the Rulebook and websites and going off the movie companion book I have... I also kept the colour choices written down so when the sleigh arrives I can uses the same ones again!
In the game, Radagast plays much as he did before, under the new Hobbit rules, but can be upgraded to take both the sleigh and Sebastian - simply charming!
So, that marks the completion of the painting of all the figures from the Starter boxed set. It only leaves the Goblin town terrain, though I am not in a huge hurry to paint this, as I earlier made my own Goblin town setting...
So whats next? I am busy painting up the Trolls; Bert Tom and Bill, and have just about finished my Hobbit Ale Cart having added the reigns last night - fiddly but I got there in the end...
I am also trying to clear my painting table of a past partially completed project ; 34 Warriors of Minas Tirith... it was easy starting them off with a blast of silver from the airbrush but they have languished since - must get them finished for some scrapping in Osgiliath!
Stay tuned for more...
