I know, I know. MK, you have too much crap going on! You are moving to Germany, all of your stuff is packed, and you already have a few threads that are active!

Well, I am not saying your wrong. But, when the vision hits you you have to run with it. Also, I am planning on doing a few video's, starting a you tube channel, etc. Saying that to say, how can I pass up the opportunity to paint the new "MANTIC HALFLING'S". Short answer, I cannot!!! So, my grand vision is to use the Battalion Box set as my entry into the video world! With your help, I know we can do it! In the meantime, lets start to develop the main page for the army - and I know it may disappoint some people, but I am very much still mentally stuck in the Warhammer Fantasy world when I paint, so these miniatures, just like all that I paint, will develop their story line with that in mind.

By the way, I have never recorded or edited anything in my entire life. But, I was smart enough to keep my travel paint kit, this box, and a few other choice miniatures from being packed with the rest of the stuff!!

The Moot:

The Grand County of Mootland, better referred to as "The Moot", is an extremely fertile region located within the confines of the Empire, between the rivers Blue Reach and Aver Reach. Most of its inhabitants are farmers, as the land is full of perfect soil for growing. Its inhabitants also happen to be only half the size of a man, with hairy feet and a generally jovial continence.

The relationship between the Elder of the Moot and the Empire is also different than that of the rest of the Electors and their holdings. Although the Empire officially "claims" the Moot as part of the Empire, it has developed into more of a mutual relationship where the Moot provides food and live stock to Altdorf, and the Empire offers the Mootland mutual protection. Some halfling units even serve on rotation as part of the Imperial Guard, and many halfling cooks and farmers are sought after to serve in household staffs. It has been rare that the Empire actually pulls the Moot into conflicts of any kind.

And so, it was very strange for Elder Hisme Stoutheart to receive a direct missive from Karl Franz himself. It was short, to the point, and held little in the way of argument. "Ready the Mootland, war is coming. The dead stir again." The dead. It had been many years since the dead walked the lands, but the older halflings still told stories learned from their fathers of the days of the infamous Vampire Counts, and the number of people that had been brutally murdered as they ravaged the land. Many halflings had been slain as well. For Karl Franz to send him this letter meant that this was an inevitable event. He had to protect the Moot at all costs.

Summoning his small council, he began to plan.
