    Kender are halflings in the Dragonlance World. I am contemplating puting together a Dragonlance Mod. They do not have large hairy feet. Sorry.

    The hoopak prop is courtesy of Kinboat. (Thank you very much Kinboat)

    A hoopak is sort of a sling-staff that Kender use. It also has a spike on the end to be used as a spear.

    This is the first time I've ever posted a unit without testing it first. But, I always test it, and it's fine, so, I'm taking the risk. If you find any problems PLEASE let me know

    Hoopak Kender


    Kender Impailer


    Kender Swordsman


    BONUS----Larger version of the Kender Swordsman. Use it how you like.

    Generic Swordsman


    Kender Scout


    BONUS-----------Larger version of the Kender Scout. Use it how you like.

    Generic Scout

    Excellent, I actually think I am drooling... Not that I like to admit it, but hey! Its definitely excusable here! As are the clothed feet.
    The waiting was worth it.

    Perfect Kindred. Even better than I thought they would turn out. My only question is maybe a settler/worker combo? Could be used as a king as well.

    AS far as the rest of these? :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    EDIT: Maybe now that Hobiit will stop haunting you. ;)

    One problem... you made the human version quite gigantic, so that normal human figures look like halflings when next to them ;)

    As far as the too small or too large goes, one could always hire the wee and large folk into their military - midgets have rights to ya know!:D

    Hmm.. That's wierd. I've been using Kinboat's setup and usually my human models come out just fine. :( I'll be more carefull with that in the future.

    That should be easy enough to fix though. I'll work on it when I get home from work.

    I would definitly look after a Dragon-Lance mod :)

    I haven't got the time to d/l and test them (little connex right now), but they seems nice.

    The Hoopak's attack animation seems short and a little weird.
    The Hoopak should go from farer or the projectile sent later.

    I would love to see a Dragonlance mod. That would make a Minotaur civ possible if you made units for that as well. Wyrm's map is pretty good. A few mistakes like the Budapest city which is supposed to be Gateway, but overall that is a very good map and would make a great map if you touched it up with C3C editor.

    Yeah, I know, I just wanted an excuse to mention cheese, like in your description thingy. :)

    Yeah, with the kenders, I thought they used it like a Dennis-the-Menace-slingshot-on-a-stick too. Course I never red any of dem booksh.

    I started reading those books this last summer. I've read "The Warriors volumes 1-7," "Icewall Trilogy" and I'm curently on book 2 of "Dragonlance Chronicles."

    I was quite impressed. To my surprise. They are almost as good writers as myself. I think I'll have to get back to that writing thing as soon as I finish my mod. Got to pay some old bills you know.
