Druids?

Postby NapalmKing » Mon Oct 03, 2011 10:11 pm

I really like the idea of druids but I havent seen any on this forum so I took a try at making some things for a nature/druid faction

I bult these guys a druid and an Ent.

This is probably going to be a hero I will make his face geen and brown similar shade to the horse. I think im calling the staff a scythe of gaia gives the wielder control of nature.

This is just a white horse I colored with a few shades of green and brown some forsest steed or something.

This is the ent I tried to make it look humanoid but also somewhat random and twisted like an old tree.

Ok so that is what I have im thinking of making some big animals that rip things appart and some roots that will be summoned to crush enemies.

At first I thought it was a trans-gren horse, and I was like :shock: but then I was like :? . Ent is cool though, and nice scythe.

Nice, I like the idea, and the execution is great. However, I would also color the visible portions of the inside of the horse's legs, as the uncolored white bit looks a bit disconcerting. Other than that, it's all pretty awesome.

I'd say some Woad-looking elves would kick ass, as would a dirt dragon

See if you can turn the ent's vines into a moustache. That'll make it at LEAST 1.5 times cooler.

Love the Ent, nice work there.
Druid hero is OK but not very epic for a hero. Maybe a cloak with hood to help set him apart? He's just missing something...
Horse is fugly; sorry...

Im gonna make some sork of cloak for hero and shade his face kinda woadish but green, For the ent i can twist the vines in any direction I just thought that a beard would look more old and wise. As for the horse it was and expierement which I think turned out ok I is also pretty easy to do I do need to color all parts no more white.
Anyone have Ideas for animals I'm working on some wolf and bear things but I've had no real luck.

This is a fantasy army? If so, go nuts! I found that going through any collection of fantasy monsters makes great inspiration. Some ideas:
hydra
chimera
griffon
dragons
centaurs
dryads
ETC.

Etin and dirt dragon are very cool I hadnt thought of those.

Another thought that I had was that I could mix druids with a faction of post roman britan like they are tribal and whatnot but use romanized weaponry and stuff.

So, that is a sweet Ent. I've always enjoyed watching people turn random bricks into something cool, as I'm not that great at it (which is truly unfortunate since that is how Lego works!)

As for horses, nature doesn't have any green horses, so just go with the brown and black horses and you'll do fine. Keep the white ones for leaders, and maybe track down some green barding and some green horse helmets on bricklink. :)
It's a secret to everybody.
