Boar Cleavers - WIP


Hit another snag with the hobbit goat knights. I was going to order some slotted bases, but noticed that since they have a single tab, they would end up being shifted to one side or the other of a standard two-slot base. I need to find bases with a single slot down the center -- or find some other way to base them.

So while I sort that out, I prepped some other hobbits... The Boar Cleavers. Taking their name for from their brave stand against mounted orc raiders on the Jackrabbit Trading Company's first caravan mission, the Boar Cleavers are the most elite regiment in the company -- nearly as effective as the average human unit!

More Westfalia miniatures, plus a regimental mascot (from a pack of dogs from Mega Miniatures?) to round the numbers out to 15 for the moment. (I'd like to fill this unit out to 20 strong, if I can get my hands on more hobbit halberdiers.)



Hope to paint them soon!

  1. They look grand - I wish their Kobolds would come back into stock.

    1. I really wish I had bought into that KS. But I had too much going on (financially) at the time.

  2. Very tempting models. I went down the rabbit hole when you mentioned mega miniatures, saw they had grenadier lots with the first metal miniature I ever painted. A few searches later I bought the boxed Orcs Lair set from somebody else.

    1. I'm not a fan of laser cut wood/board stuff. Nit-picky, but the smell bothers me.

  5. Is there a reason you can't just snip off the tabs and pin them to bases? Feels like years since I put a slotta figure on a slotta base using the slotta tab!

    1. Mostly just I'm too lazy to pin all those minis. Plus they're tiny models.
