Count Von Herbimhyre found himself in the midst of the land of the halflings, The new army of dead he had raised was rather disappointing. It was an army of little halfling undead. Herbimyre shook his putrid head with shame. Most skeletons were bigger, fantastically quiet and did their job, but these halflings undead were a trial!  They never shut up! 

"I'm hungry!"  

"No you're not, you don't have a stomach, do you understand?" 

"Umh, yes, I have a question"  

"What!"  

"Whens lunch and how much farther do we have to go?"  

In this, the second kickstarter of hopefully several, you too can pledge your support and receive halfling undead to raise to do your bidding!

A grand beginning: While shopping at the site of one of my favorite sculpting artists, I noticed he did commission work. I realized at this point I could get undead halflings made by the illustrious and infamous Bob Olley! Not wishing to stunt his creativity I have tried to limit my suggestions so we can get the purest Bob Olley creations we can (with a few exceptions, it’s hard to keep your fingers out of the pudding!).

More Success: With the help of Gary at Iron Mask Miniatures (the maker of snooty, elegantly dressed dwarves) I was able to find a fantastic caster, thus bringing the best representations of Bob Olley’s work to all of us!

Much of the work has been done and I have invested the lion share of the money needed to get this project going. My plan with kickstarter is help fund the remaining work, see what kind of interest there is in the project, and look into the viability of creating more halfling skeleton units such as halfling skeleton warriors and halfling skeleton spearmen.

What's in The Pledge?

Collector's set #1 includes one each of the following miniatures:

Add Ons

  • $7 Jack de Knife - Add one halfling Skeleton Assassin to your pledge

Risks and challenges

The risks and challenges are very minimal, I could keel over and die, though I do my best to avoid this every day. I have learned a lot from the previous successful kickstarter and most figures have been sculpted, masters cast, and some production figures are finished and awaiting your guidance and commands.
