I may have finished Orctober early this year, but that leaves plenty of time for other Halloween themed minis this year!  All spookiness comes from the Bones 3 Kickstarter...actually, I think it's all from the same Crypt Expansion, except for one of the spirits.

The full haunting:

Very nice - it's one of my favorite Bones sets, and I like the pumpkin minions in particular - those are among my favorite minis from KS3, and I really like the painting on these!  (I kind of think of them as Mr. Bones' henchmen, actually, carrying out some gravely task for some sinister plot of Mr. Bones'!)

These all look great!  Are you going to display them all together for the season now?

 

I am also working my way through the same expansion and have not gotten to the golem, spirits, or melon heads (pumpkin is a melon is it not?).  I like that you have a spirit that has a color other than black or grey.  I am not sure if I'll go for blue too or more of an eerie green on mine.   

 

The pumpkin bunch look to be the most colorful of his expansion.  I am curious what their story is.  Is one of them carrying a tombstone on its back?  Talk about taking grave robbery too far!  Or are they just the opposite?  Generously delivering your headstone to you and offering to dig the hole while you wait?

They're actually on display at my station at work right now per request.  There's usually a few on my monitors but I was asked to bring in a Halloween theme, so these fit.

On the note of multi-colored Spirits, I do sort of wish the Bones Ghosts came in simply clear plastic.  It would be nice to see some of the traditionally colored spirits, like the Reaper/Wraith in this set, and the Ghost from the original releases, done in a translucent plastic as well.

I do plan on using most of these in a Halloween-themed D&D 5E one-shot.  The Pumpkin Minions will actually be the main henchmen of the "Big Bad", a spurned House Spirit turned Graveyard Faerie who is raising the dead out of loneliness.  They seemed like something out of the Feywild who were both cute and creepy in equal parts.

There is one dragging a headstone, one holding a lantern, and one who appears to be robbing a grave.  Maybe he's just bringing by an older body that has turned to bones?

Nice work. The pumpkin heads add a nice spray of color to the solemn grave yard. I have yet to see a bad paint job on this set.

      Hey all, been a while.
       
      Quick job from Bones 4. Added a saddle, threw on a Mantic Soul Reaver cavalry rider with a head swap from Puppetswar.

      The forest became full of a terrible din; the trees began to groan, the branches creaked as if a violent storm were coming, and the old witch Baba Yaga came crashing through the undergrowth in her great iron mortar.
      With a pestle in her right hand she urged the mortar along, while her left hand was busy sweeping away the trail behind her with a broomstick.
      A host of spirits came in her wake, sending up a terrible howling and screeching until she approached the gates, where they left her and flew silently back into the forest.
      She rode right up to the gates in the mortar, all the while chanting in a blood- curdling voice:
      'Little hut, little hut
      Turn towards me with your door
      Turn your back to the forest
      And your face to me!
      And the hut immediately stopped spinning, turned to face her and stood still.
       

       

       
       



      Edit: Forgot to mention: The 3 Baba Yagas are the Bones 4 Baba Yaga, the Village Attacks character, and from the Steve Jackson Games "Hellboy Villains" boxed set.  The second Dancing Hut is one I crafted around 2014 for my "Pathfinder: Reign of Winter" game, which is a Paizo Adventure Path that is based around the Baba Yaga.

      My first post here! I thought the bones 4 ape men would make good soldiers for my growing demonic army. Still thinking of tweaking some of the smaller details and considering also painting the armored one as a barlgura. Tried to give some texture by dry brushing orange over a black base coat for fur. I also tried to dry brush around the eyes to create a deep red glowing effect.

      C and c welcome but keep in mind I’m pretty new to this!

      Mostly aimed at Frostgrave, Ghost Archipelago, and Rangers of Shadow Deep, here's some more completed miniatures from Reaper Bones 4.


      Clever girls.
