I hope those Forest Trolls get a release without the hobbit on their back. Look like an excellent sculpt of a Troll.

Thanks for posting images @Gerrcinn

Cool looking minis and lawn mower is hilarious. I can almost hear halfling yelling “Get of my lawn, you dirty goblins!”.

what do people think the Winter Secret release is?

Mounted Sons of Korgan maybe, discuss.

I see a scorpion tail and a feline outline, so I automatically jump to the conclusion of a Manticore/Chimera type beast. I’m still finding my feet with the lore and all the armies so does this tie in with anything we already have? Varangur maybe?

As for the Halflings? I like what I see. A moderate balance of tongue in cheek without being too farcical.

I’d love to see a Twilight Kin reboot ala the Armada stuff teased earlier in the year, but that’s simply biased wishful thinking.

That winter silhouette is most certainly a Manticore. At this rate Uncharted Empires will be full Mantic ranges, which is no bas thing.

the rider appears to have big spikes on their shoulders, so i’m guessing varangur for now.

curious how they are going to introduce the Halfling list product wise.

Love the troll gunners, the mage is nice. Less taken personally with the kite/jet pack ones.

Interesting to see the list & more info about the rules - plus whether anything changes with the LoR list.

Will do a halfling force, but a lot of the r&f will be Wargames Atlantic ones, although the dog cav is quite cute

changes already made to LoR the halfling list is building a different way, new army special rule for example instead of stealth

I don’t think it is Varangur unless they rewrite entire list, but I am surprised to see a monster as regular cavalry.

Glad to hear that, always found stealth an odd choice for Halflings. Yes they are short, but they aren’t ninjas. Always viewed halflings as militia type troops, poorly trained, but very willing to defend their homes. So will be interesting to see what they end up looking like.

The Halflings look much better than I was expecting - mainly more variety and a focus on engineering. I hope this is matched with a uniqueness of play as well.

Beyond a few lines of fluff, any reference to food/cooking should be excised.

Yes, plenty of small creatures more nimble than a Halfling without stealth.

It’s a bit of a risk for the Halfling player as well, as against some opponents it will do nothing, and next to nothing against many more.

Yes, very interesting, I saw the Halfling balloon corps in the picture and am hoping we get them as models

We still might. Kyle said the most interesting pieces weren’t even shown as far as he was concerned

I’ll be fielding the maximum number possible, no matter how good or bad they are in-game

I know what you mean, I don’t need anymore halflings, but that will not prevent me from buying all of the halflings.
