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.

      Help! I'm hating this paintjob.
       
      I grabbed this demilich thinking it'd be a fun and easy paintjob. But everything I do makes me hate it more.
       


       
      I was trying to go for a green flame look, so yellow on the inside, and gradually darker green highlights on the outside. These were drybrushed and then cleaned up by hand. I think this is where the problem started because it's not reading as fire. It just looks like a blobby mess?
       
      Should I just scrap it and start over with more of an ethereal glow that's darker in the middle and lighter on the edges?
       
      I also am not happy with the base. I've never painted a 2D base before, I've always added some kind of texturing material. And although I'm reasonably satisfied with how the base looks on the summoning circle behind the demilich, it looks so bad on the demilich base. And I think my green glow isn't helping. 
       
      And finally the Bones. I imagined that if there was a green light behind the Bones then they'd be tinted green and darker on the outside. Again .. this just doesn't look right.
       
      I'm normally fairly confident in my painting abilities, but I think I've landed in unfamiliar territory and I'm just not sure how to salvage or proceed. What can I do?

      Nolzur's do make a few great monster minis, even though most -if not all- of their humanoid minis are too small, weedy and have too shallow detailing for my liking. Here is one:

      Yep, a dead head.

      50mm base.
      The main colour is Citadel Contrast Plaguebearer flesh, the rest is regular paint.
       
      This mini was finished September 12th 2020.

      I have no idea who sculpted this, as WizKids do not -as far as I know- publish this info.
