Combat Gnomes

MAKE regular Shawn Thorsson, of Petaluma, CA, casts and paints these rather brilliant army man / lawn gnome mash-up figures in his home workshop. They are available in both painted and unpainted varieties in Shawn’s Etsy shop, and there’s also a Flickr set full of great in-process photos.
