LOVE 'EM!

Those ARE just terrific, nicely painted, little guys. The one with the sling is one of the MOST personable minis I've seen; he projects an air of Sweet natured innocents within his diminutive psychopathic little bod. VERY WELL DONE! thumbsup

I hope this is the start of an ENTIRE WarBand.

Um the shepherd is the one with the sloing, the ordinary halfling is the guy eating a chicken leg.But if you mean where are they from...the shepherd is apparently from Talisman, the other one is just an old Warhammer halfling. They're awesome models, luckily I have a few! Smile

Well, I think they turned out quite good. Especially the first one - that is one hell of a mini. bounce

Real nice work man! Your lack of enthusiasm for painting eyes really doesn't show, they're pretty spot on!

Really nice models! And despite the fact that you claim you hate painting eyes, I'm with Cianty on this one - they look great! Very nicely painted models - lots of character, and a great start to a warband. Looking forward to more of these guys!

I've painted a few more up, they look a bit shiny because it's evening so no natural light (using light from my phone instead) and because one of them has been varnished already.
First up a chef, an elder, and a bog ordinary halfling:


And next up, all the painted models (so far) together:


Ps alot of these models are on their 2nd or third coat of paint...really I should strip them and start again, but that's way too much hassle for me Smile

A FINE LOOKING Band of Chubby, Gluttonous, Thieving Psychopaths. They defiinitely have a unique charm & character all their own. Each piece has a personality that adds to the War Band as a whole. VERY WELL DONE! thumbsup

Mmmm... You have a lot of old metal GW halflings and i hate you! Suspect

It's good to see all those halfs so beautifully painted, man.

BTW, the first halfling is plastic and came with the "adventurers set" that GW sold a couple of years ago.

The cook is from the "halfling hot pot" and is the commander of the war machine.

It's a shame GW don't sell these minis anymore Mad

Well, thanks for posting and please keep the good work man!

Best wishes.
