A game of small stature, but great scope!

Gnomes started as a fun little idea that I had one Christmas while sat around talking about movies with my wife. The borrowers came up and I mentioned that I had always wanted to do a 1 to 1 scale skirmish game that could be played on any surface, with enough imagination. I had already penned out an idea years before, but by the time I came to make it someone had already beaten me to the mark, and I got disheartened and shelved the idea. However, when talking to my wife I became enthusiastic about the idea again and started to think about how I would go about it. Creatures at the end of the garden had been done, as had Lilliputians and other small humanoids. Being Christmas my inspiration quickly turned to elves… but they didn’t get my imagination going quite as much (and I had done Elves many years before in a stop motion animation called “Junk”). Then it hit me, well… Gnomes are a bit grittier, aren’t they!?. That was it, I was hooked.
