From IannickM - Back by popular demand... (25 Points)

Halflings are back! I must say I was slightly surprised by the populace's hunger for them, but ask and you shall receive, so here's another five of the little fellows for this week to satisfy your Halfling cravings.

Those of you actually reading my ramblings may recall that the Halflings are meant, amongst other things, to play some Frostgrave games (which I renamed LeafGrave for this project). And to play LeafGrave, you need at least two very important things : 1) a wizard and 2) an apprentice. So it was time to paint one of each! Also this week a Paladin, a bard and a fighter.


From left to right: Fighter, Bard, Apprentice, Mage and Paladin


The Mage is to be used as an Elementalist for LeafGrave. I didn't paint the Apprentice in the same colour scheme as the Mage, which many people do, as I wanted the Apprentice to blend with other of my Halflings wizards. 




Because yes, I have a few more Halflings wizards from that range so that will leave me the option of building different Halfling warbands with different wizards. I expect you'll see at least one or two more practitioner of magic before the end of the challenge! I did however gave the apprentice the same type of "lightning blue" magic flame to tie him up. 

I hope you keep enjoying the little guys as much as I enjoy painting them. It's like going through all the possible D&D Character classes, 5 Halflings at a time.

More Halflings (possibly, probably) to come next week!

(and another 25 pts for the challenge)

ByronM: What a way to start a Wednesday!  More excellent Halflings from Iannick!  After a week away, Iannick has caved to the peer pressure and is once again presenting us with some excellently painted little people.  Not sure what more to say, Iaanick, once again I love your clean painting and excellent soft (almost pastel) colour choices.  Top notch stuff!

  1. Leafgrave sounds a pleasant ides and no reason why not! But Fatlings need a new wizard class only concerned with food, drinking, smoking etc. maybe the whole game set around a picnic!

    The figures have a nice clean cartoon like feel to them which enhances their charm

    1. Don't fall into the stereotypes, Halfling use that to their advantage, especially the Wizards!

      Thanks, I enjoy their cartoon looks, it works well with their type.

  2. Really liking the halflings, Iannick!
    Nice color choices for them too, my favorite is the paladin. Not used to seeing that grim determination on a halfling face lest it involved squaring off for dibs on second breakfast! ;)

    1. lol, I enjoyed painting him, and went with a very different palette colour to represent his grim determination!

      (also, who said he's not fighting for dibs on second breakfast!)

  4. Outstanding stuff Iannick! Excellent paint work on some wonderful sculpts.

    Now - the question - can you come up for a halfling for the sci-fi 30k setting? A ratling for hope?

    1. Hahaha...it's a nice challenge actually, wonder if one of the sculpt I have left could be used that way. My biggest obstacle would be bits for conversion : I have very little almost nothing for Scifi. Basically, the opposite of you ;-)

  11. Nicely done! And LeafGrave is a more than appropriate setting for these I'd say.

  12. More awesome little people! The Elemenalist is particularly fine. Maybe for these folks you could call it 'ShallowGrave'.

    Try the bisque, folks! I'm here all week.
