Petril Shortcloak Mercenary Fighter.

Petril Shortcloak is a mercenary sellsword currently a member of the 'Fists of Iron' Adventuring company.  A husband and wife team Petril and his wife Kat are an excellent pair of fighters who work together well. Petril fends off foes with his trusty halberd whilst Kat shoots them down with accurate fire from her trusty crossbow. The Shortcloak's are still young for Gnomes and have a lust for exploring the world, adventure and of course treasure. They hope to one day earn enough gold to buy themselves an Inn, retire and settle down and raise a family

Kat will be another Otherworld figure she's not yet been released officially yet so you will have to wait for her to be replaced before she will make an appearance here.

I think this one of my favourite miniatures in the demi-human range its nice to see an armoured gnome they are often magic users or rogues. I like the fact they have adventuring gear and not just weapons he has a hand axe, wineskin and bed roll as well which are all nice touch's.





Its nice to see that the sizes have bee done really well. Some other gnomes I've looked at are as big as some Dwarfs.

  1. They all look great together. Those dogs are the bees knees.

    I'm working on a commission of gnomes and they've been appropriately sized. Gnomes are fun to paint!

    1. Thanks Anne, Brill I'll look forward to seeing pics of them. Gnomes are one of my favourite races. But rarely do you find such great miniatures. I was hoping to get some reaper ones to mix but sadly they are bigger than my Dwarfs that I already have.

  9. Now you don't usually see many armoured Gnomes hanging about! They've usually got a fishing rod or a wheelbarrow.

    1. Thanks, I've though of a cavern type setting with stalagmite spread about and with a ruined temple plus some big lumps of rock to block LOS created caves and such. All in my head at the moment mind you.
