"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.

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!

So I decided I needed a Bombshell Dog tag. So I went and dug out the only Bombshell model in my collection - the Morihalda bust. Getting her ready for reapercon will be a challenge, but after tonight, I think I'm up for it.
I'm really happy with her skin on her face and chest. Not sure what to do about the furry ears, though.
Working on my Reapercon piece.. still trying to get the skin tone highlights right. Probably need to thin my paints more..
