When you go to fontsquirrel’s webfont-generator click ‘add fonts’.
Pick the font you want to use from the pop-up window, after that select the right radiobutton that says ‘expert’. Under ‘Subsetting:’ select ‘custom subsetting’, and choose the ‘character type’ and languages and ‘unicode-tables’ you want to support. Check the ‘Agreement:’, and you can download your web-font-kit, with limited characters, and reduced file-size.
Why didn’t I think of that? A bit of a chicken-and-egg problem online then, so maybe try some software. Found this article which explains how to use the open source font editor Fontforge to reduce the file size.
