Seems like they were quite prevalent in that part of Indonesia:

Maybe that's how they evaded Kong; they shrank. :)

So, go grab some pygmy miniatures and some Green Stuff . . .

"feral" hobbits?

Reminds me of TSR's old "Dark Sun" system, and them jungle-dwelling cannibal feral halflings…

Cacique Caribe23 Mar 2010 3:45 p.m. PST

From scratch?!?

I dunno, Alex . . .

You know I've only done conversions and the occasional non-humanoid creature. I've never done anything humanoid before.

No. No, I will not.

Cacique Caribe23 Mar 2010 4:21 p.m. PST

C'mon Covert Walrus, you know you want them! :)

Now, if only I knew who made African or "Negrito" pygmies for 15mm:

I'd imagine two kinds, something like the Elfquest style or better yet, cannibal pygmy zombies like in Mummy Returns.

28mmMan, Me and the buds tried the system and failed multiple times to survive even the introductory published adventure. Athas is a HARSH world.

Darksunwiki info on "feral cannibalistic halflings"

link

From the wiki: "Dark Sun is a fresh departure from the mainstream fantasy settings. It is set in the desert world of Athas, which is reminiscent of a post-apocalyptic ancient Middle East, North Africa, Mesopotamia or Meso-America. Themes include:

* Exotic and unusual playable races
* Survival against the harsh elements
* Despotism and slavery
* Widespread psionic use
* Extreme scarcity of water and metal
* Destructive nature of magic

In Athas, every use of magic has a cumulative destructive effect on nature, killing plants. Almost every PC & NPC are psionic. But if you enjoy the whole, "almost all weapons & armor made from stone, wood and bone because metal is far to scarce," thing, it may be up your alley.

I loved the artwork…

The GW droses jumped to mind, but they are a little too big for the purpose link

I ran a Dark Sun campaign once. One of my players rolled the longest streak of 00's on a D% I've ever seen. Rolled four of them in row, and then rolled two more in short succession. And it was all on the "Random Psionic Powers" chart. His starting character, a Thri-Keen warrior, started out with more psionic power points than the average 20th level psionist as well as over twelve major disciplines.

The first published Dark Sun adventure I ran started with an encounter where a horde of over 400 undead are supposed to push the PCs towards a tomb or something (I forget, they never went near the place). Because no way do 3-5 3rd level characters face 400+ undead. Oh wait, thri-keen demigod killed them all in two rounds. Adventure over.

That was pretty much the whole campaign. Even the killer cannibal halflings were powerless against an insect-man that bends time and space to his godlike will.
