Druids

Here’s an assortment of druids I painted a while back, after I realized the same figure had been serving as pretty much every druid PC or NPC for years…decades actually.

This first fellow is technically a cleric, but as he has his armor, if any, covered by a tunic or surcoat, he’s always served as druid. His mostly green paintjob was in bad shape so I redid him as more of a Templar in a filthy white surcoat.

Two female druids, both Grenadier. On the left, a magic user from the late AD&D “Adventuring party” set, in green because she’s a druid, I guess. This figure is currently standing in for a cleric henchperson in our AD&D game. On the right, an old “Wizzards & Warriors” figure.

Finally, two actual druid figures, again both Grenadier. On the left, the druid from the “Pinnacle Products” (a sort of reworking of the “Action Art” line with all new figures) Fantasy Lords set. On the right, the druid from the “Adventuring party” set. These two have been sitting around half-started for decades.

The slinger’s cap and equipment are so strange. They look more Renaissance than ancient or medieval. But AD&D druids are weird grab-bags of anachronisms anyway.

Of course “historical” druids probably dressed in white, so I tried to do some in white robes. On the left, a plastic figure from the “Descent” game. On the right, a Ral Partha druid. He should have two companion figures, as he’s from the “Three stage adventurers” series, but I only have the one. Painting anything white is always a challenge, as the shadowing can make the white look dirty, but I think they turned out ok. The ‘Partha druid has a belt of mistletoe, a nice detail.

  1. Do you have the Druid from the Magic-Users set or the Druidess with a great cat from the Females set?

    • Yes, both. The former has been serving as every.damn.druid. for more than 30 years. The latter still needs painted.
