My best bet would be eather toy pigs, look in toystores after farm aminals, maby there are some with the right size.

Or use orc boars (new or old). Its not much help, but the best i can think of right now.

Zelophahad based 2 pigs on each 25x25mm base and they looked really good. I don't think pigs are big enough for a Cav base. (They aren't the Wild Boar that the Orcs ride after all!)

Personally I am against pigs...
Halflings are daft enough, pigs are just downright....well even more silly.

Pigs are in the spirit of Mordheim (though not in the same league as Fish, Rats, Frogs and even Drumming bears!)



Here's Fishgutz vs. Zelophahad's piggies!



Then some more Ogresuns came to his aid!



Bacon butties for supper!

How about the Wargames Foundry ancient swine? Only two poses but they fit the Halfling theme pretty well.

Bit pricey too, but you might be able to get them cheaper through another seller.

awesome boars indeed!

they would also fit well into a gaul witchhunter warband with the sigmar priest asterix and his old companion ogre obelix Smile although I doubt they would survive long enough, hehe...

I'd give a bunch of wyrdstone and a fistful of gold coins for one of those old citadel boars and I'd happily use it as a "count as" wardog for my heroes Wink!
