Last Friday (the 24th of February) there was an "Open Day" at Wargames Foundry - and man on the spot was Mr. The Dozing Dragon - miniature forum activist, collector and a great hobbyist - and luckily he noticed all "the new" miniatures in the panting cabinets - including these fantastic Halflings:

The halflings are about 19-20mm to their top of their head, so should go well with most modern Halflings.
All are sculpted to a very high standard and ooze of character. Exactly what you would expect from a "Hobbit" Lovely, lovely work by Mr. Pickford and I am very pleased to see that they are now on their way.
The Halflings were done by John back in late 2009/early 2010 and have been with Foundry's for a few years now. And we'll still have to wait some months before getting our hands on them. The rumour says that they are to be released late 2012 - and might be part of something "bigger" from Wargames Foundry.
Also, on the Open Day, was some of the cool concept artwork that was made for these excellent hobbits, shown - and with the courtesy of The Dozing Dragon I'm allowed to share his pictures of these here, too :
Really nice drawings and nice to see that the sculpts catch the same feel found in the drawings. Often hard transforming two dimensional art work into a 3D sculpt - but I think John did one hell of a job here.
