It was, the Baron was told by the Wizard Gudgrief, a great honour to host the Gnome Royal Family and their entourage as they wintered in Midlam.  The Baron muttered that he was indeed blessed as he saw the second Gnomish hill growing at the bottom of his estate.

He had yet to receive an invitation to visit the royal family, and wasn't going to impose as he had already seen an alarming number of gnomes armed with spears, halberds, bows, crossbows roving the grounds, firing and jabbing at everything that dared to move.

There had also been quite the crop of mushrooms the size of which the Baron had never heard tell.  The Wizard Gudgrief said he'd had quite an illuminating conversation with Moonwort the Mystic who puffed away on a pipe as he sat on one of the mushrooms and contemplated all manner of Gnomish mysteries.

The Royal Court of the Common (or Garden) Gnomes

Midlam Miniatures are pleased to present a collection of thirteen 28mm scale figures, for all of your Fantasy games. There are a variety of both male and female gnome miniatures.

Goldenrod the Gnome Fisherman - The Stretch Goal is Here!

We are pleased to announce the stretch goal, Goldenrod, the fishing Gnome, on his Giant Mushroom.  Everyone knows gnomes love to fish!  

Please note, this is a two-part miniature.

Should we reach £3500, then we will include one Goldenrod and his Giiant Mushroom free with every The Gnomic Royal Household pledge and Gnomic Royalty and the Common Gnomes pledge.

Anyone backing The Gnomic Royal Household x2 will receive two copies of Goldrenrod on his Giant Mushroom.

Backers who pledge for the double miniature reward may choose Goldenrod on his Giant Mushroom as your reward in total.

Backers who pledge for the single miniature, may, if they wish, choose Goldenrod OR the Giant Mushroom.

The Stretch Goal is Coming!  

We will be announcing our stretch goal for The Royal Court of the Common (or Garden) Gnomes at midweek, or £3000, whichever comes first! We typically introduce a special goal in our Kickstarters which lets backers gain a bonus miniature free of charge (with the larger pledges), or as an option for those backers who pledge for one or two miniatures.

Art Card Production has Begun!  

As we have reached £2000, we are pleased to say that we will be including an art card with every pledge. Approximately 4" by 6", this card will be printed on textured paper in full colour. The artwork, will be an original piece by our regular illustrator Graeme Neil Reid, who specialises in acrylic paintings.  

Minimum Funding Goal Reached!  

We are pleased to say that we have reached the minimum funding amount of £600 to allow us to start work on getting the miniatures into production. Thank you all so far, but we still have some work to do!  

An Art Card Guaranteed for every backer at £2000  

Should we reach £2000, then we will produce and include a Gnomish art-card printed on high quality paper with every reward, created by our regular artist to Gnomish Royalty, Graeme Neil Reid!

The Original Common (or Garden) Gnomes

If you missed out on our first gnome Kickstarter, there is a chance to pick up all 14 of the original Kickstarter gnomes alongside this one (supplied unpainted).

A Note on Metal 

The miniatures are cast in a high quality pewter, with a high Tin content, but may contain a small quantity of lead (typically no more than 5%). We unfortunately cannot guarantee lead free models. Most 'lead free' metal usually contains a small amount of lead to help the metal flow into the mould. Below is an actual picture of the shiny metal we use.

Risks and challenges

Risks and challenges

Risks are low, though there is always a small chance that, for one reason or another, a figure does not cast properly.

In these unlikely circumstances we would either get a replacement mould or commission a sculpt by the original sculptor, matching the original as closely as possible, with whatever modifications are necessary for the miniatures to cast correctly.

Should this happen, the estimated release date for all miniatures could be pushed back by a month or two until any problem was fixed.

Although, across all ten of our Kickstarters, and over a hundred miniatures made, we have only had one serious issue with one miniature, which in the end, only added a couple of weeks to shipping.

We strive to keep people updated at all stages of production to let them know how the manufacturing is going.
