Halflings will do just fine as NPC's. Im just gonna burn them anyway, and woe betide the player in my group that would ever entertain the idea of playing a halfling. He would be put through hell by the bigot racist characters I make.
Wouldn't that happen as frequently to Elves and Dwarfs?
The first half of my current campaign contained a Halfling character - a friendly, if dubious barber-surgeon-turned-apothecary named Dogwit Rumplebreek, who had a tendancy to litter his speech with unprecedented slang (that is, he made up words for things when he felt like it) and whose unfortunate dealings with Halfling organised crime in Marienburg forced his swift relocation from the city. He, being the only nonhuman character for the bulk of the campaign at that point, faced his fair share of bigotry (that is, slightly more than the Bretonnian, but only because the Bretonnian was large, armoured and on a horse)... and in every case, gave as good as he got.
Don't mess with Halflings - especially not those with a professional reason to carry around a straight razor. In the Warhammer World, it's not just the rat-catchers' dogs that are small but vicious. Sooner or later, you'll find yourself in a dark alley, set upon by small figures ready to turn you into sausagemeat or pie filling.
