Maledrakh's Great Pumpkin scene -All Reaper minis

Recommended Posts


AUGH! The Great Pumpkin Came!


This was my entry in a painting league at another  miniatures forum.


In reference to the longstanding Peanuts theme of Linus sitting alone in the Pumpkin Patch waiting for the Great Pumpkin to come bringing gifts, Santa Claus-style.


It's a pity for him that Halloween is all about the scary...and the Great Pumpkin probably is not a very nice being.


The miniatures are all by Reaper, the fences are from Mantic's Kings of War Vanguard terrain. I found the simplicity of the fences really helped to sell the story here. As one of the commenters in the LPL-post stated: "Less is more".


Lots more pics, but yah gotsa clicks!

Linus is from a pack of three minis called "Townsfolk: Modern Children", in the Chronoscope line. This model comes on a skateboard, which I cut away. The security blanket is rather ineptly "sculpted" by me in so-called brown stuff. This is the first time I used that putty and it was much more soft and floppy than expected before it set. At least I managed to avoid fingerprints.

Linus is usually clothed in a red t-shirt with thin black stripes, black shorts and brown shoes, I had to adapt it a bit as the model is wearing a jacket. The setting and the blanket should still make him recognizable.

The thin black stripes are drawn on with a fine tipped pen. The ink is a bit more reflective than I would like, leading to a lot of bright spots in the pictures.

The Great Pumpkin, aka The Bonesylvanian Jack. Bonesylvanians are a series of superdeformed / Chibi horror-themed Bones miniatures made by Reaper. I believe they were first seen as add-ons in the Bones 3 kickstarter. I bought this one for this entry. It was actually quite fun to paint.

The Grave Minions from the Graveyard Expanion of the Bones 3 KS.  I painted them in the colours of the three munchkins from the 1939 Wizard of Oz movie.

The mini is cast in one piece, and therefore a bit flat, as can be seen in the sideways pictures. To fill out the base, I added some pumpkins I downloaded from thingiverse and printed out.

Of course, there should have been vines going to all the pumpkin tops, but there wasn't time and I think it might just have muddled the impression a bit by making it too busy.

In all honesty, it looked a bit patchy until I added some of my autumn flock.

      Again, an entry for a painting league at another forum.

      Susie and the Snow Goons! RUN!
      In homage and reference to the seminal comic strip Calvin and Hobbes. Here we have Calvin's instantly recognizable wierd snowmen, and Susie, his neighbor/friend/schoolmate and part-time nemesis in addition to Calvin and Hobbes themselves.
      Search for Calvin & Hobbes. You will not regret it.

      We're walking in the air (...)
      Suddenly swooping low
      On an ocean deep
      Rousing up a mighty monster from his sleep
      And walking in the air
      We're dancing in the midnight sky ...
      (from The Snowman, 1982)
      I used Warlord Games WGS-STG-10 Melting Snow for the snow on the bases.

      Short Wart's Cohort Mort
      Being a band of bony retribution soon to cross the Brandywine and come a-knocking on little round doors under the hills.
      Most of these skeleton minis are from the same second hand purchase where I got the zombies that were featured a few week ago. I got the incomplete undead mammoth off Ebay several years ago, and Short Wart himself is an Oathsworn Halfling Necromancer. All minis have been given 3D printed bases, most of them 25mm.
      There are a lot of pics beneath, although some are distictly unfocussed, as if a dark power did not wish to be documented...

      Inspired by the weekend question, I took some pictures of the army thus far and found that posting it in the question thread would be excessive, also that I didn't have an ongoing thread for my largest painted army so here it is. The plan is to get my Shelf of Incompleteion cleared off then work on reinforcements for this alongside my Old School Undead army. 

      Here we have the Pumpkin construct unit led by a Storybook Witch from Old Glory. I have 3 more of her, but the bag only came with the one flight stand and the Reaper ones I have don't fit, when I get around that, they'll form their own unit. Behind her is Rotpatch, and the scarecrow is hanging out with these guys until I can get a couple more. The constructs are filling the slot of core infantry.

      Here is a Ral Partha Witch leading the Pumpkin Knight heavy infantry consisting of the Halloween Knight and converted Barrow Wardens. 

      Willow Greenivy leading the skeletal Pumpkin Guard. 10 newer GW skeletions and a variety of Reaper Bones. 

      Elise with the Pumpkin Chucker and some Bones skeletal archers providing ranged support.

      A female Necromancer and the Etherial Legion of ghosts and wraiths. 

      An Iconic Witch, Pumpkin Spider, and friends.

      A converted Brettonian Sorceress with the skeletal heavy infantry. Basically, what happens when adventurers irritate the witches.

      Bats, wolves, and allied vampires. 

      Another vampire and werewolf allies.

      Zombies, ghouls, and another Reaper Witch. 

      Beastmen and hell hounds with an infernalist witch.
