Gnomevember the Second


Wfrp_logo

A blog called Where the sea pours out has picked up on my earlier post about the short career of the Gnomes as a Warhammer race and made some very interesting observations about Gnomes in general. There is solid information about their origins in folklore and alchemy, and some thought-provoking comments about the way they have come to be depicted outside fantasy games and how that affects the way people think about Gnomes in games.

It’s worth reading, and in a previous post the writer promises to show us some of his collection of old Citadel and Grenadier Gnomes. I’m looking forward to that.

    Thanks for the shoutout! Life got in the way of my painting up the gnomes in time for gnomevember, but they’re mostly complete now (just need to do more detail on the faces) and I’ve just used them in a nice roleplay heavy 3rd ed new year’s scenario, “A Dwarf With No Beer”: http://wheretheseapoursout.blogspot.co.uk/2015/01/battle-report-dwarf-with-no-beer.html
