Welcome to the forum and the game

Question is what do you define as a "Radagast alliance"? What comes to my mind are eagles, Beorn, Gandalf and probably some wood elves. I've seen pure eagle-armies being played, but it's probably not the easiest thing to start with.

Have you joined the Great British Hobbit League facebook group? The SBG designers at GW read and post there, it's kind of the central hub of SBG activity in the world. Lots of guys there always talking about army lists and whatnot - they'd be the best place to go for advice

Please correct me if I'm wrong (I don't have my books in front of me) the only group that includes Radaghast is "The White Council" and the only group that includes Ents is "The Wanderers in the Wild". Now, the rules would allow you to field Radaghast along side a warband from "The Wanderers" list, but he could not lead them. You would need to include a hero from "The Wanderers" list.

I don't have points handy (again, no books) but you could field something like this:

The White Council
Radaghast the Brown

The Wanderers in the Wild
Treebeard (hero)
Ent (warrior)
Ent (warrior)
Ent (warrior)

Gwaihir (hero)
Great Eagle (warrior)
Great Eagle (warrior)

Ghan-buri-gan (hero)
Woses Warrior (warrior)
Woses Warrior (warrior)
Woses Warrior (warrior)
Woses Warrior (warrior)
Woses Warrior (warrior)

The actual number of Ents, Eagles and Woses would be dependent on the point limit you are working with, of course.

Old profile Radagast is part of the wanderers list. As far as i'm aware, he hasn't been superceded by the Hobbit profile yet. Like the Necromancer for example.

I accept that I am probably wrong. I was working off of a spreadsheet I put together of all the army lists an miniatures and I'm sure it has a few errors in it (like Radhagast) .

So, getting back to the OP, yes, you can field Radagast the Brown and one or more Ents together in one army list, and contrary to my previous post Radagast can lead the warband of Ents (and/or Eagles and/or Woses).
