Hi Bronze!

I had a quick search through the forum, because just like you, I could not think of any halfling minis other than the fighting cocks.

I think asking wobbly_goggy and Pfreck directly would be a good idea. Both own very nice Halfling warbands.

Just PM them, and ask them where they got their minis from. Both are nice guys and I am sure they will be happy to help.

[EDIT]: Other than ebay, I think REAPER MINIATURES has quite a lot of halfling minis that a really decent and would work perfectly size-wise.


Here's one of my favourites!

I have some halfling mini's still in blister. I don't think I will be using them, so if interested, let me know.

Yes, all 40k!!! I have SO much to get rid of, as I won't be using most of them. Note, these halflings are the Warhammer Halflings.

Games wokshop Lotr line has the hobbit figures they are part of the forgotten kingdoms warriors. Not a large selection of weapons but there are over a dozen different figure designs and at $15 for 4 not too horribly expensive.

I know, it IS hard to find Sad

Maybe buying the halfling thief and cook from mail order is a start?

And as I said, Reaper models are pretty decent. It's just that for some reason people are affraid of using them because they are not "official" GW pieces.

It is true that you should have a look at them in real life to make sure they fit the visual style of your GW collection, but when they do, they are excellent minatures imho.
(e.g. The dwarf lady in this forum's banner. The best dwarf lady miniature I have seen so far).

im bidding on a hotpot at the mo which contains the chef plus other good ones i can customize Smile. but i can't seem to find a theif anywhere, except the GW website for 8 pounds plus P&P (im english btw). reaper mini's have some awesome models especially the dwarfes but i don't think the halflings they have would match the rest of my warband, thanks for the advice though

I have some alternate Halfling models I might be parting with as well. I will take some pics and send them your way. I have another 8 or so halflings. What 'type' of halflings are you looking for? Warriors? Outcasts?

picture this: Halfling Fighter, decked out with full armor, helmet, sword, and shield. (Looks like a Halfling Knight)

Then I have one model that looks like he's mad, angry face, both hands up in frustration with fists.

I will have to see what else I have when I get home from work, as these are mini's that I have laying about, not in blisters. I REALLY have to take some pices of my mini's that are OUT of blisters.

Another group of 5 models I am willing to part with. The middle one is the REAL Halfling. The others, I believe, after looking them over, are gnome models. Not sure if you are still interested, but they are up for sale now.

Looks like it's You, Paluke, and Matt. Shipping is about 10 US dollars total, divided by how many of you want items.

Ezekiel = Halfling Command Blister + Single Halfling mad model

Paluke = Halfling Archers Blister

Matt = Orc Boar Boyz Boss, Orc Boar Boyz Banner/Command, Orc Boar Boyz x3 (ALL ON BOARS), and Hobgoblin Wolf Rider (ON WOLF)

Anyone Else near these guys?

I read it some days ago but forgot to PM back, sorry about that.

Who's adress will we send it to actually? There's no problem sending it to me (lol) but I think Ezekiel is more centred.
