Wow... didn't know there were so many manufacturers of halflings!

Wargames factory is just over 50% of the way to making halflings on the liberty and union league:

I sent an email to Goblin Factory. I'm going to try picking up a small assortment to see what they're like & if they're worth getting more.

In fact, maybe we can use this thread for photos, reviews and comparison photos as well.

I'll have to dig out some of mine. I've got Grenadier, Ral Partha, Reaper and the old GW/Marauder figures. I stripped a lot of them about a year ago. Maybe it's time I paint a few up.

The Battleforge is in the process of getting his 2nd edition halflings painted and photographed for his website.
The Elector Count Halfling for the Moot is finished and I'm expecting his musician the town cryer to be up shortly.
Black and white photos of metals just look awful, they need to be painted and photographed nicely to see what the model can achieve aesthetically, so after much badgering he is finally getting around to painting and photographing them... slowly.
The 2nd edition are all about the state halfling troops and the models are much cleaner and sharper than the rustic cousins of the first edition.
Coming soon...

Just found these linked from LAF to a blog of a guy that went to the foundry open day:

(http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-EKCOMmlLU6I/T0e21YsxDJI/AAAAAAAAANQ/mTZy-jl9K4M/s1600/New%2BHobbitses.JPG)

Apparently foundry is supposed to release them later this year.  They actually look decent in this photo, unlike some recent foundry releases...

Anyone care to speculate on how much the price tag will be?  :dry:

Very little useable there for a table top army, but they could make interesting additions to vignette.
Better than their recent sculpts.
Title: Re: The Halfling File
Post by: Delthos on February 26, 2012, 12:08:56 AM
What are you talking about. They would make a great Free Company unit of Halflings. If I were to ever build a Halfling army those would definitely have a place in it.
Title: Re: The Halfling File
Post by: Justnorth on February 26, 2012, 12:33:07 PM
Good onya mate.
Talking about it and actually doing it are 2 different matters. :icon_wink:
My halfling units are all 20-30 strong minimum and apart from the few Foundry halflings pictured that are viable as rank and file, I wouldn't appreciate the amount of repetition required to make them a decent sized unit. A sprinkling of the few would be fine but I don't what the scale of those models is like yet.
If there are more coming in poses better for RaF  that might work out well.

Secondly, I still really like the old GW plastics for free company, one of the best sprues ever. That mordheim sprue is wicked.
Title: Re: The Halfling File
Post by: ZeroTwentythree on March 13, 2012, 05:19:40 AM

OK, quick comparison of the Goblin Factory halflings...

(http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a195/ZeroTwentythree/minicomps/hobcomp.jpg~original)

First off, let me say that the Reaper figure is one of my all time favorite halfling figures. Moving on... the rest are just some of the few semi-common halflings I could show for reference, as well as an easy to recognize Empire figure, and my traditional Empire photo model/mascot. (The handgunner - I think some names for him were suggested at Warseer, but I don't remember what they are right now.)

Obviously I haven't painted any yet. In general I like the look of them. I like that they seem humble (not as "heroic" as the Reaper figure) but without being a caricature. But they are a bit retro looking... sort of like some of the old (and horribly painted) Grenadier halflings I've got tucked away. I don't know that they compare to the Reaper figure's quality. Maybe not up to the level of some of the other competition, either, but then there is the price to consider. For the price, at least here in the US, I think they're a good deal. The two packs I got were $5.50 for 4 command figures and $8.50 for 6 archers. So I spent $13.00 on 10 figures. Looking at some of the other new fantasy figures... $5 to $8 each. So I guess there's that to weigh as well.

I have no idea if/when their web page is going to be updated to include the halflings. He's also got kobolds as well as the eponymous goblins.

Title: Re: The Halfling File
Post by: Justnorth on March 13, 2012, 07:40:13 PM
They look ok, it's always harsh on figures to make judgements when they are unpainted let alone up against painted models.
They look a little bit little but with some green stuff to level out the base on top of the slotta base and flocking the might look a little bigger.
I would like to see them when they are painted, especially if you are going to give them the same kind of caring treatment you did on the handgunner. I'm sure they will come to life a lot more. It will bring out the character that is hard to define in an unpainted miniature.
I would have put one of the regular Perry sculpted spearman halflings in there too.
The Reaper is the best proportioned of the options and a lovely model.

The price?
Very user friendly. Really nice price. It's always heartening to see other manufacturers offering deals and fair prices.

I also just found Stonehaven. No halflings, but a lot of other varieties of "small folk" that might fit some people's purposes/concepts. Some of the dwarf women, for example, look like they would make good halflings. Or if you don't mind pointy ears, the gnomes would work well. They've really got a lot of character. I really like most of these figures other than the elves.

Yes 023 - how could you have neglected Westfalia - don't you have some ............................

Also Forlorn Hope have the old Copplestone ones,
https://www.forlornhopegames.com/index.php/category/232-halfling-sets


and Northstar have his new ones on their Copplestone site.

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!
Title: Re: The Halfling File
Post by: ZeroTwentythree on January 28, 2017, 08:44:48 PM
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:
Title: Re: The Halfling File
Post by: Midaski on January 29, 2017, 10:40:07 AM
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:

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.

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!
