From TeemuL - A Pair of Hobbits (10 points)

I was quite exhausted by the Dwarf Bolt Throwers and tanks for the Epic Failure last week, but somehow I managed to get these two little guys ready for my Tuesday deadline.

They are originally Lumpin Croop's Fighting Cocks (what a name!), a mercenary unit for Warhammer Fantasy Battle. They have rules in Dogs of War / Regiments of Renown department, but as 5th edition WHFB allows imperial player to field Imperial Halflings with bows, I will be using these as those. I had four already, so with the addition of these two, I can now field a legal unit of six.

Although they wear quite earthly colors, one has bright red shirt and other has bright white. I did pick up all the details like buttons and those, so shame on me by ignoring "always paint as good as you can" guideline... This time the eyes came out very nice, I think, so that helps.




Two (very small) 28mm halflings from GW is 10 points.


"Nassstyy hobbitses! They hurts us they does"
Nice work on this pair of halflings Teemu. As you say, that's 10 points towards your target.

  6. I always wanted to field a hobbit force. There are some new sculpts coming down the pike soon, but I do like these old GW ones.

    1. Remember when the Marksmen of Miragliano could skirmish?

      GW nerfed them badly when they removed that ability in the following edition...

    2. Yes! It was actually a killer army in its day and wonderfully colourful. I remember how people with cav-heavy armies getting 'introduced' to pikes.
