☠️🎃Halloween is just around the corner, and what better way to be ready for spooky antics than with your own mob of sinister skeleton gnomes?🎃☠️

[Stretch goals have been added below!]

These undead gnomes are ready for medieval combat ⚔️, accompanied by a full set of command miniatures 🏴, as well as an eerie necromancer 🧙🏻.

We are starting this project early so as to guarantee that we can get these shambling gnomes into your hands well before Halloween so that you can have them painted and ready to spook in time!

Stretch Goals!

With the quick success meeting our goal, we've decided to add some stretch goals. 

£600 - a Gnome Vampire

If we get £600 or more of backers, every backer who contributed £20 or more will get a vampire too! Or you can pledge £3 and receive the vampire instead of the necromancer.

£700 - A Gnome Frankenstein's Monster

If we get £700 or more of backing everyone who backed us with £20 or more can choose either a Frankenstein's Monster or a Vampire, or both for an additional £2. Or, you can only pledge £3 and receive the vampire instead of the necromancer.

£900 - A Gnome Mummy

This concept is very much up in the air. Does it get a gnome hat? Beard? Belt? Feel free to comment.

Freebies

Some folks were interested in the "spoo-o-oky" banner so Byron did his best to reproduce it in MS paint. Feel free to copy and paste, edit, print, or otherwise do what you will with them. They will need to be scaled to fit when you print them.

Here is an additional banner

Candy OR Death!
Candy OR Death!

Brass tax: This project is sculpted to be compatible with traditional 28mm fantasy table top war gaming miniatures. The gnomes themselves come in about 13mm to the eye - about upper to mid-thigh on a standard 28mm model. The gnomes come in 8 variants: 4 rank and file armed with halberds, 3 command models: standard bearer, musician, and a leader with a lantern, as well as a necromancer armed with a wicked dagger.

The models come unpainted and without the spoo-o-oky banner. The models are small and metal and thus not suited for young children.

No bases are supplied

Shipping will be invoiced once we have packed your gnomes.  

Risks and challenges

This is our sixth Kickstarter - we have the troups all ready to go. This is a quick KS to hit the pre halloween deadline.

Our one failed Kickstarter only failed because we set the goal too high. The goal this time is set just to cover production moulding costs
