Westfalia's Third Breakfast KS, Warlord's halfling army pre-order, Wargames Atlantic plastic halflings in development, Midlam Miniatures recent KS, and I think I'm missing at least one more recent halfling release from the list.

The Westphalia link in the op goes to a Japanese text page, google translated it turns into a phone sex advert!!!!!

Kawe moved from Bournemouth, UK to Canada so I expect he has had to change a few things, though it was interesting to see the 3rd Breakfast stuff is going to be cast in the UK still.

Looked at the Warlord halflings, although not as impressed as I am with the Westfalia halfmen.

Well I could only find the one mass picture - which makes it very hard to discern the detail or quality

Further down on the page that 023 provided a link for is a series of smaller possible purchases with pictures that can be clicked on to see the figures a bit larger than the warband picture.

Do Warlord games make halflings!? Why have I not seen them!?

I really need nice halflings in bulk for my planned League of Rhordia army.

For the moment, it seems they are for "pre-order".

Thanks GP - I went through the Shop initially and hadn't seen that page on the News side.

They look interesting - some seem very 'yokel' and others have the portly look of the GW later ones around the DoW unit Lumpin' whatever

I've actually emailed them to see if they have any comparison pics against 28mm figs


Edit: Ok found out they are made by TTCombat - were a KS end of last year, and are around 20mm high

Those pictures of their halflings on the kickstarter page aren't doing it for me.  Makes me not want the Warlord ones at all.  It is like they've done them via computer sculpting and they don't look as good as other figures.

I buy them if they are cheap. Then I can excuse myself using the halflings as fodder while protecting my valuable Stirlanders... I mean Rhordians..

Similar to GP, I'm not crazy about the cartoon/parody style of the Warlord figures. But since there's a recent abundance of halflings, everyone can choose their preferred style. The other manufacturers have their own styles to suite other tastes.

Agreed.  Perhaps I'll even revisit the warlord figures and cherry pick a few, but for the moment, my money is going to Westfalia.

Looking at the Warlord ones, I was reminded of the very rustic / yokel look of Battleforge ones.

I amended the OP as the link wasn't working - and they effectively have two pages, at least, for halflings.

Found the other ones I knew were missing. OSM currently have just a few available, but are working on new sculpts.

Westfalia's Third Breakfast seemed to be digested well, and they made it past 30K.  That means the halfwomen will  be made.

New plastic multipart halflings from Wargames Atlantic.

40 figures in the box - looks like 8 sprues with 5 bodies - Northstar are selling at 25.00 normally  (Early Bird offer on at the moment)

I'm having difficulty making up my mind. I'd like to get a box just to see how they are. But then I started thinking, well... if I get two boxes, shipping is free. Then I started thinking, well... if I get three boxes, I get that discounted price. Then I stopped and remembered that I've already got plenty of figures waiting to be painted, including Westfalia halflings. And although these look decent, I think I still like the Westfalia figures better. (I just wish that I wasn't having problems getting my orders/missing parts, and didn't have to deal with unbending a bunch of the resin spears/pikes. Both of which have been contributing to my procrastination on that project...)

I'll likely pick up at least one box of the plastic halflings up at some point. (Probably waiting til after the holidays.) In spite of the above indecision, the regular price + postage is still very affordable!

I've updated the first page. Just discovered the Shattered Isles range is back in production at Bridge Miniatures.

Like the looks of those.  :icon_cool: :::cheers:::

I picked up what looks to be a halfling character of some kind out of a bin full of various figures at a Fall-In! flea market this past weekend.  The label features the following ... 1650, Tercico Creativo, Morados Viedos, Mochilero.  The figure is made of resin, seems to be for a game, and the packaging included a card too.  The figure has flowing clothing, a sling with a doosy of a rock in it, a sword, and a 1600s era hat.
