I have only one or two other halflings from this set, but would like to pick up the lot of them at some point. I particularly like the colors I chose for the shield on this one. Them and the rosy cheeks.

Here's a description of a pre-gen character based on this fig I wrote for a one-off adventure called Vault of the Mushmen:
Rory Bywater, halfling fighter, wants to be a hero.
He is the eldest son of the mayor of Suddenberries and has a hundred admirers amongst his young siblings and cousins.
Not to mention his dozen or so lady admirers back home, and the numerous sweethearts he acquires on the road.
He has a cheery smile and deftly navigates between a charming bravado and sincere humility.
