Caleb's League of Rhordia Painting Plog

This seems like a good a place as any - after finishing up my latest dwarf project (pictures soon, hopefully), I decided to take a break and work on the other diminutive humanoids that have been on my mind lately - Halflings!

Back in April, I really wanted to support my local game store (Tower Games Minneapolis!) and did some curbside pickup on a box of Wargames Atlantic halflings I’d had my eye on for a month or two. They were absolutely a joy to assemble, and I immediately wanted to do an army of them… Luckily, like a lot of us, I have a huge painting backlog! This lovely fella from Reaper works well as a Duke on a Flying Aralez, I’ve got some centaurs I’d scratch built from Warlord Games Celtic Tribesmen and cheap amazon toy horses, which would work fantastically as Knights or Halfling Cavalry, and a bunch of sprues of Warlord Games Roman Veterans from an Adepticon a few years ago that I’ve been meaning to get to, which would work as foot guard. Combined with some Reaper Minis from kickstarters, some re-purposed Warlord Games Egyptian Chariots with Nolzur’s Boars instead of horses and a bit of creative greenstuff with extra halflings, and I have a pretty good start to an army. Once I get my hands on something to use as a Mammoth (perhaps a Warlord Games War Elephant?) and another box or two of halflings, I’ll be well on my way.

Here’s the list so far - comments would be welcome, it’s definitely a work in progress!

Since I’m putting this in the showcase area, I’ll end with the first painted test miniature - a Dogs of War Halfling! (though technically not that keyword… and I still need to frock the base… but whatever)

More updates as I get more painted.

Looking forward to more updates. The progress already is amazing.

More pictures!

A completed test model for the Foot Guard (aforementioned Warlord Games Legionaire Veterans):

And a few work-in-progress pictures just because - Halfling Knight (scratch-built centaur - it doesn’t say what the half has to be, after all), a Battle Shrine (because seriously, what else are Halfling going to consider shrine-worthy?), and a Duke on a Winged Aralez (rider is magnetized and finished, mount is roughly 1/3rd done)

That’s all for now. Have a great weekend everybody!
