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.

      Last new post for the day.
      Here is another BONES Tick.  I have 2 more and a queen.
      This is the 4th painted one, and I painted it while I painted the centipedes.  I wanted some bright colors and bright markings.
      C&C Welcome.

      I painted this large water elemental several months back to fill a gap in my water elemental supply.  It started out translucent blue, but I painted it opaque.  I haven't tried inking the transulcents like others have, I lack the inks, and feel I get good control with opaques.  I wanted a simple beach sand looking base, to suggest he has washed up on the beach to harass sunbathers.  C&C Welcome.

      I painted this up quickly several months back, to swell the ranks of water elementals.  It was translucent blue, but I painted it opaque.  I feel I have more control that way, and don't have the spiffy inks everyone says work so well on the translucent BONES minis.
      C&C Welcome.

      Here are another pair of Giant Centipedes.  I have 6 total of these, and these are the 4th and 5th to receive paint.
      Simple, bright green with some red eyes and antennae for contrast.  C&C welcome.

      I finished my Leisynn conversion. Took ages, especially with a new baby boy in the house.
       
      That said, I am fairly pleased how he turned out. I changed the entire front and head area of the miniature and gave him a more sensible staff.
       
      I think contrast could be increased overall and the subtle freehand on his robes was difficult. I will need to practice more with future minis. 
       
      The illumination in the book turned out ok, but I came to the limits of my current abilities. It is based on a medieval illumination. Anyone can guess what it is? One hint: the horned one is involved.
       

       

       

       
      C&C very welcome.
