Bah, I updated last night, but that revision and my reply appear to have gotten lost in the warp. I will update later tonight when I am in front of a computer instead of a phone.

And you're right - I am shamed. Westfalia's halfmen and others are my favorite new minis in years, and I've always been a big fan of Copplestone's sculpting, especially for easy to paint rank & file. Both definitely belong on the list!

OK, added those three links. I should probably check all the old ones sometime soon to see if they're still valid. Probably should update the list on my web site/blog too....  :icon_redface:

Now I will repeat the post I made which also disappeared ........................

You mentioned in your original that you had been slacking in keeping it up to date, and I let you off  :engel:

You will also probably at some stage need to revise the White Knight links as he has sold off  moulds to TAG and Shortwars,

TAG have still not completed the Kickstarter and have not loaded any figures to their main site as far as I can see.

Shortwars are a bit more organised but still building on it.
http://www.shortwars.co.uk/?product_cat=halflings

and the Foundry offering has appeared under Warmonger

http://www.warmongerminiatures.com/collections/halflings




I was linked to Forlorn Hope after seeing the newer ones on Northstar, and then realised I had visited the FH stand at SELWG in 2015.
It was the Frostgrave had just launched period and I found 4 barbarians for 6 and also spotted some amazon cavalry on big cats that had 'snow leopards' written all over them ......................... ('spotted' / 'leopards' - did you see what I did there ................. )

Turned out the barbarians were older Copplestone stuff too as I recognised the figures when I started browsing the FH site. I might have bought a few more since ............  :closed-eyes:

Haha, already ordered those for my Frostgrave games. Midlam also recently did Halfling Wizards (which I already have for my Frostgrave games).

Also, despite many earlier denials in this thread, Stonehaven Miniatures do make halflings. Which I already have for my Frostgrave games...

I've seen some Grenadier halflings and wasn't sure how they fit size wise

I have some. Was missing a few from the old boxed set (some of my first minis ever) so picked up a complete set a little while ago off ebay. Can include some of them in theoretically upcoming pic...

They're not the ones available from Mirliton, though, if that's what you're interested in. (Though I should get some of those as well...)

Found them and I have them already - silly old fool.

They're the older Copplestone ones - currently sold by Forlorn Hope.
Copplestone's newer ones are on his site managed by Northstar.

Just learned that the Goblin Factory halflings are once again available. (As well as their other small ranges.)

Not sure how these didn't get added.

I need to revise the OP. A couple have changed URLs or gone out of business, and I now have a couple of new ones to add. And maybe one of those comparison photos I mentioned long ago...
