The Gnomish Adventurers Project will produce a set of Gnome hero miniatures for dungeon-crawling, RPGs and 28mm tabletop wargames.

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 Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

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!

FAQ

  • Yes! We will have examples of the greens before the project ends. Not all the greens, but enough to give backers an idea of what to expect.

    You can also check out our Dwarven Adventurers Box Set KS project to see how our Concept Art transfers to Greens.

    Last updated:
  • Yes, each gnome will come with a generic black 20mm plastic slotted base. The Automaton will come with a generic black 25 mm plastic slotted base. There will be other pieces that will receive bases too (i.e. the hawk, skeleton off the bit sprue, and more!)

  • Currently (with a little over 5 days to go) the difference is, is that the $120 level includes:

    Female Rider + 3 Legged Goat Mount w/ a 4th Mechanical Leg

    Cloaked Rider + Bat Mount

    A bit sprue & d20

    We have announced that there will be:

    A Gnome Illusionist

    A Gnome Hoplite

    A Gnome Children Sprue + Tombstone (2 kids, 1 baby, & tombstone)

    Last updated:
  • Most likely not. They will probably be slightly higher, mainly because we are adding more to each set and thus the final set will include more.

    Last updated:
  • Yes. And while we have some good solid plans we welcome your ideas. :)

    Last updated:
  • Yes we do (and try to make comments ourselves there)! Though it is possible that we miss some questions and thus messages are always the best way to get a hold of us.

    Last updated:
  • The USPS (United States Postal Service) has increased their shipping rates quite a bit for international shipping.

    For instance: In 2012 shipping 1lb to Europe cost $11.60. In 2013 the shipping cost to Europe for 1lb will be $15.08. International Backers will likely see a bit higher pricing on shipping because of this. One 3oz parcel was less than $5 to ship to Europe and now we are looking at close to $9. :(

  • You can add options by increasing your pledge amount to cover the costs of what options you want. After the KS is over we will collect information from our backers about what they all wanted in their order.

    You can find a list of what options are available to add and how they cost by following this link:

    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc…

    As per KS policy we are not allowed to offer more than 10 of any 1 item. Thus, you must keep your gnome loving to a 10 per mini or other item limit. No 300 hoplites this time!
