Gnome Village Volume 1 is a set of models based on the mythical civilization of gnomes - small folk of the forest that repeat combinations of natural themes with fantastic colors throughout their architecture.
Gnomes grow enormous versions of natural objects for architectural purposes, including this forest watermill built inside a giant mushroom! This building is a multi-floor, fully furnished and textured building, with base river hill and dam, waterwheel, and more. The bottom floor contains storage, and an accountants table and ledger - just honk the horn to enter. Upper floors are devoted to the grist mill, with a rope lift to bring goods up to the top floor for grinding.
This friendly gnomish inn is built within a great old mushroom covered stump, hollowed, multi-floored with even a trap door to the "roof". Within, a grand common room and bar, where you can drink from traditional drinking horns and appreciate several fine gnomish paintings. Upstairs, find your restful room with bed and a view.
Components: bar door, bar, bed, candle, chair, drinking horn, lamp, mushroom (3), painting (4), sign, shelf, stool, table, complete model, empty model
Gnomish spiritual practices are mysterious, combining a full on church (typically created from giant mushrooms) with an ancient stone circle, reflecting in miniature the fabled Gnomehenge. Follow the path and find yourself comfortably inside, with a tall bell tower (complete with bell) and church hall with benches, pulpit and golden cauldron.
Components: altar, bell, bench, (4), cauldron, lantern, path, stone (4), obelisk, complete model, empty model
Although a little folk, gnomes possess a special talent to manipulate size, shape and mass - allowing them to grow or transform even living objects beyond their natural size. The Gnome Village Blacksmith lives in a giant apple, shaped by eldrich magics into his workshop. The building features a balcony for viewing the night air and pipe smoking, and a complete workshop with multiple anvils and hammers. New features include a bedroom set, new tools, a front porch and a well. Sprinkle the mushrooms wherever you like.
The Gnome Village Woodcutter is a funny fellow - even the smallest of trees is a beyond an imaginable size for cutting down with his little tools! Instead, the woodcutter harvests twigs, limbs and branches, or tiny gnome trees that he also grows for the purpose of building gnome homes. This is his home, and it comes equipt with a bedroom, a front room with a glass windowed stove and more. Outside a set of lawn furniture with a mushroom umbrella allow for a few creature comforts.
For a peaceful race, the small folk can defend themselves as a group. The guardhouse is a miniature castle, with an outer wooden wall and defensive platforms surrounding a stone keep. Each stone wall meets at a tower will full stairs and a heavy gate. An inner keep of stone is the final protection, with a spiral stair to the roof, but comfortable quarters inside.
Components: bunk beds, bench, wooden fence (3), flag (2), platform, stairs (3), stove, table (2), stone wall (2), empty model, complete model
The vegetable market is a time for celebration! 15 colorful tents selling fruit and vegetables, and open tables with bread, eggs, pumpkins and other farm produce await. A new, large tent is erected for a dance.
