If you are looking for value in hard plastic miniatures, no company fills that void better right now than Wargames Atlantic. I’ve been taking some time recently to build some of their miniatures and in this post, I review their Halfling Militia box set. For those wondering, these minis are scaled for 28mm gaming making them good for proxy Warhammer miniatures and all sorts of other games too.
This box comes with 40 miniatures across 8 sprues. All of the sprues are identical.
Before taking a closer look at those sprues, let me show you the box art.
The Halfling Militia Box Art
The boxes are right inline with what you would expect from Wargames Atlantic.
Moving on, let’s examine that sprue.
Wargames Atlantic Halfling Militia Sprue
As mentioned earlier, you get 8 plastic frames in this box set to make 40 miniatures.
What Can You Make with This Box?
Looking at the sprues you get the following on each sprue…
- 5 Bodies
- 2 Pikes
- 2 Helbreds
- 2 Bows
- 2 Slings
- 1 Short Sword or Dagger
- 1 Small Shield or Buckler
- Another Dagger in a sheath
- A frying pan and a chicken
From the 40 miniatures made from 8 sprues in the box, you will be able to build up to the following numbers of each soldier type.
- 40 Bodies
- 16 Pikemen
- 16 Halberdiers
- 16 Archers
- 16 Slingers
There are a few other options too such as a horn for a musician and tons of heads!
What was it like building the Halfling Militia 28mm miniatures?
Building these figures was so simple. They are certainly on the easier side of miniature building complexity. This is perfect for anyone who wants to build ranks of these soldiers quickly.
The only heads up that I would give you about this kit is that the arrows are a little thing, so be careful cutting around them. I accidently cut one in half.
Here are how the completed minis looked.
My Built Halfling Militia Miniatures
For this project I built a sprues worth of figures to see how they would look. A friend of mine wanted this set for a SAGA: Age of Fantasy army, so I didn’t make them all. Instead, I kept these five and gave the 35 remaining figures to him.
Take a look at these miniatures.
Overall, some great looking minis and I hope that my friend gets some good use out of the remaining figures for his SAGA army.
Scale Comparison Images – Wargames Atlantic vs Other Companies
These miniatures are intended for 28mm gaming which puts them inline for all sorts of games from Warhammer Fantasy, to SAGA Fantasy and Frostgrave too. Other systems could benefit from the minis too. You are only limited by your imagination. Now, let’s see how they compare vs other brands of miniatures.
Wrapping it up…
As with all of the Wargames Atlantic kits to date, I enjoyed building these miniatures. They are quick and simple and have a nice look to them too. If you are looking for a way to add large numbers to a Halfling army, look these figures up.
Perhaps you just want a few to make a group of friends in search of adventure. That works too.
If you want to get these figures, check out your favourite retailer or head straight to the Wargames Atlantic Website. Here is a link to the Halflings. The company gives price breaks to anyone buying these figures in sets of 3 or more at a time.
Until next time, Happy Gaming Everyone!!!
