The Old Gnome

12 posts in this topic

Hi all, I finished this bust last year but didn't take any decent pictures until yesterday. Anyway It's the old gnome bust by War Griffon Miniatures (Model Display Products).

There is a slight conversion as on the original he's holding the pipe in his hand but when I attended my dads wedding last year he had some of these plastic jewels as part of the table display so I employed several small children and got them to nab them all smiley.gif in the hope of finding one that would fit correctly.

Ditto. Great work! It kind of reminds me of the gnomes from 2nd ed.

I normally don't care for busts, HOWEVER your WONDERFULLY DONE piece is both the exception & EXCEPTIONAL. The things that make the piece for moi is the way you captured the skin tones of an old Guy...the redness under the eyes & the age/liver spots in particular; AND the wood grain on the brier pipe is PERFECT. FANTASTIC WORK!

Normally I dislike busts, but you really knocked this thing out of the park! As a gnome fan, you've done them some great justice ::D:

That patch on his shoulder is really nice, along with everything else!

Beautiful! The liver spots on the hand and face are fantastically realistic!
