Welcome to my Blog showcasing the development of my Old Skool Citadel Halfling Fantasy Army

Thursday, May 31, 2012


Well there have been a few sneaky photo floating around the net of Foundry's future halfling release and I'm sure you will agree with me that they aren't looking to shabby at all. In fact the sculpts are looking fantastic and great change from Foundry's recent abysmal new offerings. Just when I was finally getting around to completing my halfling army too. Not to sure on the intended release date though but it might be the first foundry products I ever purchase....but then again given their pricing.....maybe not???

GOTCHA!!! and a Cheeky Conversion

Great news, after 2 years of solid e-bay tracking I finally won a bid for the Citadel Collect Counter Halfling after missing out of three other occasions. He is a pretty rare lil fella as apparently you had to collect pieces of a jigsaw off the back of packs to make up a picture of one of 8 models, once you had all the pieces of a certain model you would then send them in to redeem them.....so I imagine that their is not a hell of a lot of them floating around especially with how ugly the sculpt is ha!!

So I now have the complete set of the Citadel Pre-Slotta, C11, old LOTR and Marauder halfing ranges including the LE5 - Psychohobbits but excluding the unreleased items. I also have all of the newer larger Warhammer halfling baring the Mordhiem halfling thief. YAY ME!!!!

 Oh and I also managed to get my greedy lil hands of this OOP old Copplestone Castings mounted halfling hero, rumour has it that these are partly reworkings of Mark's original Grenadier halflings but were quickly take out of production possibly due to IP issues?? leaving a very limited number released to the market place before they were pulled.

Also I slapped this lil conversion together a lil while back to represent a halfling supply cart transporting Bugman's precious cargo to the Moot. Pretty simple conversion with an altered Skull Pass Grudge Pony and Vermis's lovely lil halfling sculpt as the driver. I have no idea whatsoever of when I'll actually get around to painting this up.

So many halflings to paint and so lil time!!! Keep your eyes peeled to this website for some exciting exclusive HALFLING HOUSE news............

Blog Review: The Pastry Overdose - Boltthrower's Halfling Blog

I thought I would start doing a few quick reviews of other halfling blogs and manufacturers out there so first up we have The Pastry Overdose- Boltthrower's Hallfing Blog which details his crazy halfling army that he plays under the Warhammer Goblin rules. It's a fantastic army riddled with excellent and humorous conversions such as giant chickens, sheep Herder's, pony riders etc. Check it out for yourself but below are a few pictures to wet your appetite.

The Red Baron of Bogglewort and his Halfling Men at Arms

Introducing the Red Baron of Bogglewort and his minions!!! Well another halfling unit down and I'm pretty happy with these as I tried to use more subtle highlighting as well simple paint scheme. In case you are wondering the Baron is an old Citadel famalair which works perfectly as an armoured halfling knight.

Please let me know what you think :-)


Oh and while you are there a 95th rifle test fig
