Arriving just in time for those quarantine blues, I got in the 2nd set of Imperial Halflings from The Assault Group's recent Kickstarter.
A Halfling Noble/Elder of the Moot/the entire reason I backed:
"Wash your hands, wash your feet, don't touch your face."
The world of Alberon, as ancient and unknowable as its timeless depths are, has few certainties for those that live in it, but ruin and corruption awaits all but a blessed few. Halflings are, of course, no exception...
The Western Wastelands beyond Midlam are a harsh unforgiving environment, that breeds a fierceness through necessity for survival alone. It is thought that the first halflings to enter the Wastelands, did so unwillingly, captured by Hobgoblin Raiders some several hundred years ago.
It is reported that the Hogoblins thought that their small size would make them useful servants for all manner of tasks, but when the monstrous and unstoppable nature of their appetites became apparent, the halflings were stranded in the middle of the wasteland and left them to die.
That they didn't is some testament to the hidden reserves and ingenuity of these small folk, but they have not survived unscathed. Their souls, often forsaken to unknowable gods, have changed as much as their bodies and minds.
As a counterpoint to the Wasteland halflings, those that inhabit the town have found unusual niches, whether that be as criminal masterminds, pirates, anarchists, grave robbers and the somewhat cliched, but ever problematical, burglars.

Welcome to Halflings Gone Bad - Volume One!
A collection of sixteen 28mm scale halflings from the wrong side of the elven forest tracks, for all of your fantasy miniature games.
Welcome to our second Kickstarter to cover some of the more nefarious occupations and depths that halflings have stooped to.
The worrying nature of the appearance of wasteland halflings, something seen as a threat to all halfling civilisation, combined with the new depths of depravity of halflings in Midlam has called for a new town council to be convened from amongst the artisans and workers of Halftown.
First time posting some of my painted stuff here, but I'd like some feedback. These two are the halfling sorceress and pirate adventurers from TTCombat's Halflings and Fantasy Friends kickstarter.
They're my first resin models, and while fragile, they do have amazing detail. They're painted with vallejo paints, I recently got the vallejo nocturna red and skintone sets. They come with very nice guides as well.
The sorceress is meant to be holding some sort of floating light source in her hand, so I tried to shade her with that in mind.
The pirate has a teeny monkey peeking out behind her feet :D so cute

Risks and challenges
TAG, are a recognized miniature manufacturer of long standing, In the past 18 years once we commit to a Project, we always complete.
As such we don't envisage any massive issue with this small ( 6 packs) Kickstarter.
We have the Original models moulded, master-cast, and in pre-production, ready to move to full production, if and when, full Funding takes place.
We have our own professional Mail Order facilities, and have completed on over a dozen Kickstarters, for TAG, and for many other small scale mini retailers here in the UK.
As always, I'm sure there are a few ways we could cluck this up, but we promise that we'll work really hard, to make this a success, and if we don't you can give us a 'basting' on social media.
