Just got in some samples of the Midlam Miniatures (http://www.midlamminiatures.co.uk) halfling set. The figures look fantastic with almost zero flash. The figures have round bases and the current of halflings comes from Midlam's Adventuring Folk line called the "Halfling Town Council". You can buy all 8 in a set or individually. The set is on sale for $15.52, a pretty good deal for some very colorful halflings.
The halflings match up really well with most other companies halflings. If you are looking for a set to spice up a town, these will work perfectly.
Below are several shots to give you an idea of size.

One warband I am working on are the Pig Orcs from Otherworld Miniatures. While they have some fantastic pig orcs that I will be using for the Wizard & Apprentice, Knight and Marksman, I didn't think they had the exact figures I want for the thug selection.
For those looking for a very cool dice tower, there is one currently on Kickstarter called the Wyrmwood Magnetic Dice Tower System that is about the best I have seen thus far. You have variety of woods to choose from.
I chose the Snakewood version, because I just happen to have $1500 laying around to spend on such things. Actually I am kidding, but hey if you're loaded spend away.
After looking into Frostgrave, I am convinced it is going to be a pretty amazing game.
The essence of the game is to create a small group or warband of figures (Think Mordheim) and fight against another warband. The main character or leader is a Wizard. The Wizards can be selected from 10 different schools of magic. Obviously each school has it's own unique spells, which can be used during battles. Each Wizard can have an apprentice.
Once you have chosen your Wizard, you have 500 points to spend on your warband. The maximum number in the warband, excluding the Wizard is 8. Most warbands will probably have an apprentice (You don't have to use an apprentice, but it's probably best to do so) and that will cost you 200. The rest can be spend on various soldiers. A knight for example is 100. A thug will cost you 20. Once your warband is made, you're ready to fight
Each Wizard belongs to a specific school of magic. Currently each school of magic has
3 schools that are aligned with it
5 schools that are neutral
3 that are opposed
Each School has 8 different spells
Your Wizard spells can be chosen using the following
3 spells from your own school of magic
1 spell from each of the other aligned schools of magic
2 spells from any of the neutral schools of magic
As you can see there are loads of spell combinations that you can form and bring to battle. Depending on your opponent, some of your spells may overlap theirs.
So far there are 4 Frostgrave publications.
Frostgrave Rulebook (Due Out July 21)
Wargames Illustrated May 2015 (Has at least 1 article)
Frostgrave - Tales of the Frozen City (Due Out August 4th)
Frostgrave: Thaw of the Lich Lord (Due Out November)
Fractured Dimensions - Produced a set of about 16 Pig Faced Orcs, however their current site seems to be down and I am not sure what the status is.
Mountain Miniatures has a set of Orcs that are completely compatible with the Fractured Dimension Orcs since they were sculpted by the same person.
Here are some rather cool old school Kobolds from Minifigs. Now of course Minifigs is long gone, but their figures can still be found on Ebay occasionally. There were kobold 5 figures produced, 2 to a stand (KL1 - KL5).
Here is a rather nice group of Orcs from Bob Olley called the Titan Orcs. Bob no longer sells these, but they can be found by contacting Classic Miniatures (http://classicminiatures.net). These are rather large for 28mm, so they sort of fall into the heroic 30mm range.
