After being really impressed with Wargames Atlantic's sci-fi sets I've decided to build a small halfling force for some Frostgrave and later Age of Magic action. So I ordered 3 boxes of Halfling Militia ...
So far I've managed to paint up about 11 little guys, converted up one wizard and primed a few more. I'll try to add slowly to this force and document my progress here the best I can :)
Here are some pictures of the finished models. A unit of 4 hearthguard halberdiers, 2 soldiers with shield + close combat weapons and 2 with pole weapons. One wizard converted using Cannon Fodder, Fireforge and Frostgrave Wizard bitz.
Two pictures of my wizard.
Beautiful minis. Nicely done!
Nice photos too.
Where are the hearthguard helmets from?
Have you played Saga: Age of Magic? How do you like it?
Looking forward to further updates as you progress.
The greathelms are from the Halfling Militia kit, 1/sprue.
I played two games (6 points each) and really enjoyed it :) In my opinion it is a great balance of deep, but not too cumbersome rules with cool abilities/ways you can build up your forces.
If things go as planned I'll play two more games this weekend adding in some wizards and maybe a bit greater forces.

I didn't realize there was a great helms on the sprue. Wargames Atlantic did a great job with the Halfling kit.
Thank You for the feedback on Saga: Age of Magic.
Excellent start to what could be a great wee army. I have no actual need for a halfling army but I am still sorely tempted simply because they are such charecterful minis.
I love the business like look of your hearth guard unit. They look like they could handle the charge of a goblin horde with ease, and all before elevenses.
Thanks for the kind words :)
In the meantime I finished some ranged troops and also some more warriors with halberds. Still need to base them, but after that I will post a few pictures of them.
Also converted up a new group of hearthguards with bitz from all over the place, those still need to be painted...
So in the last two months I only made some very small progress due to other projects taking over, work, family etc.
I've converted some hearthguards using multiple kits, finished a few archers/slingers and a halberd warrior units.
@András Csaba Horváth Are those perry arms? I used the Warlord ones for the same thing, But the Perry arms look real good, better than the Warlord ones.
Yeah, these are from the Perry Mercenary box! I had one around but totally forgot about it ...
Some will need small cuts and/or Greenstuff to fill in the gaps, otherwise they look pretty good in my opinion :) I'll try to convert up a couple more during the weekend and paint them up.
Not just your opinion..... Your minis look great!
Wow, nicely done! Great conversions and paint jobs! Definitely need to snag me some halflings, now...
Next you'll need the most important unit in a Halfling force - the Catering Corps!
