Gnomish Adventurers Box Set

$147,206

1,374

Known for their ingenuity and guile, gnomes rely heavily on their wits and underhanded tactics to lay low much larger foes. The gnome's insatiable thirst for knowledge turns them to paths that vary from arcane mastery to the physical sciences. While humans and other larger races often find the gnomes' reasoning baffling, gnomes are capable of supreme acts of heroism and valor. Gnomes can be one the most interesting races to play in any RPG and add flavor as NPCs and opponents. Don't let the chance to play a member of this distinctive and charming race pass you by. We guarantee that you will find more uses for them than lawn decor!

The Gnomish Adventurers Box Set Project is about creating miniatures to represent a set of Gnome heroes. Choose from any of our amazing sets or choose every set (and more!) at the COMPLETIONIST level. The goal here is simple: get the miniatures sculpted, cast, and distributed to all of you! We have a variety of stretch goals planned that will enhance and diversify your Gnome Adventurers. The Gnomes will represent a relatively balanced adventuring party and/or a selection of Gnome heroes to lead any fantasy army.

The Gnomes will be sculpted by sculptor Mike Evans on a 28 millimeter heroic scale and cast in lead-free white pewter metal; fitting well with almost all tabletop wargaming and RPG miniatures.

Gnome Wizard WIP (He is 33mm from the top of the staff to his feet)! Back shot of the wizard to help give an idea of the size of the ears.

Scale (next to SH Paladin dwarf).

These are some of the dwarves that were made possible through our Dwarven Adventurers KS!

Dwarves were sculpted by Mike Evans. Dwarves were painted by James Wappel (who also made the scenic bases and took the photographs).

...

We want to make as many gnomes and gnome-related stuff as we can stand. Reaching these goals will allow us to do just that. Some goals will add to existing backer levels, others will require backers to increase their pledges to access the fruits of meeting the goals. Mike wanted to give the minis away for free but the rest of us need to eat.

...

When we hit $145,000, Five 8"x10" Gnomish Environment Maps will be created and Printable PDF files of the maps will be made available to all project backers. Maps will include a Workshop, a Cottage, and 3 Other Settings. The Maps will be on the standard 1 inch = 5 feet scale.

Risks and challenges

The main risk in this project is that (due to circumstances out of our control) the miniatures will be delivered later than we planned.

That being said, we've done this before and with shorter deadlines. We've ironed out the kinks in the process and we've been open and honest about what we are doing every step of the way.

While we do have to send portions of the project out (for casting, writing, etc.) to be completed, these are companies/individuals that we have established relationships with and are familiar with their time-tables and craftsmanship.

We're confident and excited about producing these gnomes and getting them out into your hands!
