The Second Breakfast
This range will permit you to build idyllic tranquil scenes of shire life, or add to your current war band. Whether you're into tending goats or firing cannons, there's something for everyone. Ankle-biters for all!
This project will fill a few gaps in our existing Halfmen Army and will add the extra bit of flair that every proper fantasy world needs.
We will again produce all the minis in resin as this permits cheaper prices for customers when it comes to postage. It also means really crisp details.
About the Halfmen
The first Halfmen project began with a few miniatures for a fantasy skirmish war band, but it quickly escalated into a full army of war-ready Halflings. These tough little butchers have true-to-form knightly armour and weaponry and would feel at home on the battlefields of High Medieval Europe. There's a smattering of fantasy thrown in for good measure.
The miniatures have been sculpted by Michael Anderson, and the buildings and scenery by the folks from Model Earth. The project, the sculptors, and the production are all located in the UK.
The campaign starts with a basic pledge level of £1. Paying £1 will give you access to updates and permit you to buy individual minis to make your own custom package. The pledge levels that come after, are for specific pre-made sets. However, please note that all the pledge levels will allow you to make a custom order and include items from the add-on list into your chosen pledge level. To assist with this, we have developed a PLEDGE MANAGER. You can change your pledge anytime until the end of the campaign.
Gallery / Detail Shots
For a whole lot of nice pics, have a look at our Gallery. In the gallery you will find more detailed shots of the minis in this current Kickstarter (other angles, details, etc.) There are also shots of our unpainted figurines, painted minis, other ranges from Westfalia, etc. Send us photos of your painted Westfalia guys and we'll see what we can do to add them in.
In addition to the gallery we have added some explanative shots at the bottom of this page.
The resin we're using has some serious advantages:
- Sturdy - behaves similar to hard plastic
- Workable - can be cut with a knife to make head and weapon swaps
- Leightweight - helps to keep postage costs down
- Crisp details - even at such a small scale
Scale and Comparison
The Halfmen miniatures are about 20mm foot to eye, the Ogre 45mm, and the Humans 30mm.

Bits and Pieces :--)
Now some detail shots of the buildings. Note that all the hovels have a removable roof.
The hovels are proper little buildings that more urbanized Halfmen might choose as residences. Note that all hovels have a removable roof. You can easily make two different halfling holes by just cutting the side walls. Please wear a mask whenever cutting or sanding resin!
The Halfmen holes and the pub are basically building fronts that can be attached to a piece of styrofoam to make for a proper Halfling hole. They come with a base which includes some front garden / path. They also come with a little bag of real sand to add the matching texture when blending the gaming board/hill with the building.
The goat / animal stables come with separate roofs and can be attached in a row to make for a nice bit of scenery.

Risks and challenges
Over the last two years we have hosted four Kickstarters with miniatures and all were sucessfully funded and completed. We have consistently had extremely positive feedback from our supporters. (See the links to our previous Kickstarter projects at the top of the page to read about how they went.) In addition, we have spent a lot of time planning this project and we have almost all figures already sculpted.
These Halfmen and scenery are ready to be on their way, baring the unlikely event of sculptor injury or postal strikes.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
