"If ever you chance to go to the woods
Be sure that you go by day,
Or the Spindly Man with his long thin arms
Will spindle you clean away."
Scarecrows. The purpose is to inspire fear. For crows, the idea is that it looks like a human.
For people, the issue is that it doesn't quite.
Gauntfield is a truly horrific sculpt. For one, scale creep aside, he's very tall. Over eight foot in scale, if I were to judge. For another, his hands are way too big, coming down to knee level. And those hands are clutching a sack full of bones. That's a red flag. Oh, and he's a reanimated skeleton with a jack-o-lantern sack mask. That sadistic grin! the flapping tatters! The sculptor is very like Gauntfield himself, in that they are both...
...outstanding in their field.
"When it comes to SURPRISES in the moonlit night..."
A Bombshell promotion netted me this Autumn the Scarecrone. Less overtly skeletal, but still a construct of cloth and straw given malign, shambling life and carrying a sickle. Tatterdemalion, rag-tag, hobbledehoy.
The crow on her hat is a nice touch.
Her paint job and color scheme are loosely inspired by Sally from "NIghtmare Before Christmas."
Bonus: Bombshell's Pumpkin Pal!
B:GCC - Mission 11 "Major Gas Madness" has Scarecrow as the major villain to beat. You need to find his toxin formula and escape before you croak. There is a lot of deadly gas about (surprise) so you need to be careful. There were no new heroes to paint in this mission, so I painted up a set of thugs instead.
Scarecrow and Hazmat Thugs
Not the Scarecrow I'm familiar with, but a cool one nonetheless. Fairly easy to paint, although sometimes the paint seemed to not want to stick to some difficult to reach areas.
I thought Hazmat Thugs would be a nice combo to paint up with Scarecrow. I was debating on what to do with the area of plastic between the strap and the gun. Do I paint it black? Or light blue? or white? Or yellow? In the end I decided that these guys were minions so who cares. Black was the least amount of work and looks good enough for what they are on the table for.
Sir Guinemar the Righteous takes his loyal pooch Worral with him on all his adventures. Worral is a good companion, a devoted friend and useful for catching rabbits. He wears a jaunty hat with a feather in it because Sir Guinemar discovered that it makes his doggo an absolute babe magnet.
After years of searching, Sir Guinemar finally found the legendary lost treasure of Lord Nicholai Brevil, reputedly the wealthiest man in the five kingdoms, in the ruins of Aeckland Castle. After giving a quick prayer of thanks, Sir Guinemar heard a noise somewhere in the dungeon and went to check it out, leaving Worral to guard the hoard of gold, silver and gemstones.
That was 30 minutes ago.
Worral has just noticed that Sir Guinemar forgot his sword.
(Treasure chest by Debris of War; doggo by RBJ Games; sword by Reaper. And if you could find it in your hearts to ignore the fingerprints in the greenstuff flagstones, that would be great.)
