Halfling Cavalry Conversions

If you are an avid halfling fan you will know that one thing that halflings suffer from is a distinct shortage of halfling cavalry miniatures available. I view this as a distinct shame as what could be better than a hard hitting force of portly warriors charging into battle on stumpy legged pony steeds??!!! So I decided to take matters into my own hands and whip up a couple of cheeky conversions inspired by the Bretonian Questing knights. I am also on the look out for more halfling sized ponies to expand the unit so if you have any floating around unused please drop me a line.

So first up we have the mounted halfling paladin general converted from the old citadel LOTR mounted Frodo figure. Usually I am reluctant to convert old skool minis but with these models I had doubles so I figured hey why not. There is a picture to show the difference from the original.....basically I added a spear, space marine talbard, empire feather to horses head and and empire knights of panther shield.

The next two are converted from the old C11 halflings mounted on grenadier pack horses. Alot of pending and cutting took place to make them fit flush and one leg had to be cut off and reattached. I think the overall outcome is alot better than I anticipated and I'm pretty stoked with them.

The conversion on the first one consists of an empire hammer, father and shield while on the second I replaced the pick head with an axe head while added a feather and space marine scroll to the horse. Hopefully I can source my ponies and expand the unit to around 8.
