A recreation of that stirring scene from the 1979 blockbuster "A Bag of Chips Now!", featuring the Burrovian 1st Hare Cav versus some dastardly Halfling slavers.

I did, and I give you credit for the inspiration for my Bashkir Cossacks I'm working on now. Not quite as colorful but hopefully within the lmits of reality.

Amazing paint ! Amazing game !

What have you used for the 'fuzzy' hairpieces?

Thanks all.

The rabbits were painted by Alternative Armies painting staff…as were, well everyone but the halflings.

I did repaint old Giggers and added some modifications to suit his character.

The halfing hair pieces are craft store pom poms. Finding the right size for the figure's head is key.

You may notice that Osmerry Dignatook, the foe with the outrageous fro, has a larger pom pom than his followers.

Had to cut down their turbans/fezzes while not cutting away their faces then just super glue the fros on after they were painted.

More details of the process and photos scattered about here:
