So, I finished most of this warband a while ago (just got Farmer Maggot and his hounds left to paint). I've played with them a couple of times, and they´re quite a treat - fun to play and goodlooking on the table!

First off, the elder:


Next, the cook:


The thief:


The youngbloods:



The ogre and the three not so small piggies - hey! Who left the ogre alone with the piggies? You know what will happen!

Yeah, that's right, now the piggies are gone, and the ogre is on the move...


The archers:



Some warriors:





Somehow the archer hero managed to slip away from the others during the photo session. If I remember, I'll take some pics of him another time!

Well, there you are, loads of halflings!

sorry for digging up such an old thread. How does the Lotr minis compare to warhammer minis? are the hobbits too small to be used as mordheim halflings?

They're slimmer, but about the same height (with some a wee bit taller). The best thing about the, imho, is that they're less cartoonish.

EUREKA!...you've found it. While I think the minis are nicely crafted, I've never been fond of the L.o.t.R. stuff; re, I tend to the cartoonish/caricature style. That aside. you did a TERRIFIC job bringing them to life. Sorry it took so long to give you a VERY WELL DONE!

great thanks about the info. I like the warhammer minis but since they all have bows they are a bit hard to convert for me.

I never saw this warband too.
it is a nice collection of minis.

Although i like them very much, your painting quality has improved a lot since then.

Great Job!

True, very true! Although, in defense of the poor weak halflings, I must say that they look better irl...

Oh man, I missed this warband somehow too. I absolutely LOVE GW's LotR hobbits! I think I have somewhere around 30 of them altogether.

Nice use of the minis, they make a great warband all put together, and with a cohesive paint scheme.

Thx! Have you tried the halfling warband? It's actually quite fun to play, but if you don't restrain the amount of archers it might be a bit cheesy.

Cool warband with some small and nice conversions. I especially like which models you picked out to represent your heroes. I think you made some fitting choices there so I' like to see the archer-hero as well!

Thx! I'll try to remember to take a pic, but it's not likely to happen until mid august, since I've got no good camera atm.

I don't care for the LoTR halflings because they don't go well with Warhammer models... the realistic proportions of the halflings are visually jarring next to the "heroic 28mm" models.

Which is unfortunate, since GW doesn't have many alternatives. Lumpin Croops Fighting Cocks are the only ones currently available, and they're a little boring compared to the older halflings. I'm a fan of the cartoony halflings, and I feel that halflings and gobbos can be a little cartoony without upsetting the warhammer world too much.

There are other companies out there that make hallfings, but it's hard to get one that isn't festooned with over-the-top fantasy garbage.

These might look good next to the Perry Brothers miniatures. Thier scale is much closer to that of LoTR.

Aren't the LotR hobbits sculpted by the Perry twins? At least some of the GW LotR line was.

I agree that LotR hobbits can look pretty tiny compared to Warhammer halflings, but since the warband is all-LotR, rather than mixed, it works out well.
