A while back I posted a few of my Combat Garden Gnomes to sell on my Etsy shop:
It took quite a while to finally unload the dozen or so that I painted, but since the lase one sold I've gotten a steady stream of inquiries from folks asking for them.
I've listed a few more unpainted gnomes for sale, but I've also gone ahead and sculpted out a kneeling version:
I like him because he's much angrier than the standing version:
I've cast a few of these kneeling gnome riflemen, but on the last two days of the summer cruise with the sea scouts I also decided to go ahead and sculpt out a prone gnome rifleman as well. Here's what the original sculpt looks like:
I'm about halfway done with the mold for the prone gnome and I've been stocking up on the other gnomes in my lineup so far:
As I've been getting them painted, I'm listing more gnomes on Etsy. You can see what I've got available right now by clicking here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/thorssoli
The mold for the standing gnome has finally failed, so I'm re-sculpting one of the castings. I'll be making changes to his facial expression and replacing his rope belt with a flat leather one. If you're especially in love with the original version, the seven pictured above are the last seven from that mold.
While that's going on, I'll also be sculpting yet another combat garden gnome in a whole new pose.
