Description

Dawn. The morning sun peeks over the top of the distant, gently rolling hills to the East. The dew glistens in the golden light of early day. In the growing light, the silence is only broken by the occasional chirping bird.

The ball goes up. A shrill whistle. The distant thump of a field gun. The dogs of war unleashed, gnomes charge across the plain, shouting their ferocious battle cry amidst the din of staccato machine gun fire punctuated by mortar explosions and the massive "CRUMP" of an artillery shell. As the cacophony of combat reaches it's crescendo, one voice can be heard above it all, bellowing, "FOLLOW ME!"

Until now, combat garden gnomes have been warriors without a leader. Gnome officer candidate school takes time, but I'm finally ready to field a few of these guys. A fearless leader at the forefront of any fight, he's sculpted looking back over his shoulder and urging his troops forward.

My gnomes stand just under a foot tall. They weigh around four pounds.

I ship via USPS Priority Mail, so once I drop off your package, it usually arrives wherever you are (within the US) in 2 to three days. I usually have quite a large backlog of orders to fill (these guys are popular), so it will take quite some time to get around to packing and shipping your order. Exactly how long is usually reflected in the processing times for each item. For your ease of mind, you will receive a tracking number once your gnome has shipped so that you can check on his progress as he makes his speedy way from my workshop to you.

The original was hand sculpted by me, an unemployed sailor/artist/philosopher/craftsman. Once I'd created a working mold, the original was destroyed and then lovingly reproduced in solid, American-made, urethane casting resin with various things added in to make them heavier.

Because of their handmade nature, there will be slight variations in your particular gnome.

These are numbers 6 and 7 in my ongoing collection of Combat Garden Gnomes by Thorsoli, and I am as pleased as before!
These two battle hardened warriors arrived in need of triage and it was not looking good... I asked what happened but as you would expect, they just said “it was part of the job and what’s that nurse’s name again”. Their travels with USPS placed them in harms way with hostile packages that must have started a terrible fight!?!? My guys saved the box and protected each other as best as anyone could, but the signs of the struggle were everywhere. The box was crushed and soaked in sticky vinegar seeping through 4 layers of bubble wrap that was taped and secure! It must have been hell, as they completed their journey in a suffocating stench of malted vinegar against their skin. Did they complain? NO

When I first saw these I knew I had to get them for my yard. Started with the Officer & Pistol gnome. Just ordered the standing M-16 gnome (unpainted). I'll be looking for the rest of the team as they come along.
