I liked this one, pretty girls and a little spooky stuff.      

This still gets me rollin, especially the part with the dead football team.

Just thought of it, one of the creepiest television moments of 1999 was "Hush", the silent episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. For me, that is one of the scariest episodes in television history.

I went back through the thread, and unless I missed them (entirely possible) we've tragically left some off the list!

1) The Lost Boys

2) Tales from the Crypt: Demon Knight

3) Tales from the Crypt: Bordello of Blood

 

I think I will watch the TftC movies today/tonight, but which to watch first? I'm leaning towards Demon Knight because of William Sadler and Billy Zane. Bordello of Blood wasn't as good to me.

 

We watched The Lost Boys yesterday, along with Trick r Treat. Tonight was the original Halloween, along with the sequel from 2018. 

 

We watched a lot of horror this month and I'm pretty sure my housemate is done with the scary stuff for a while. They'll be in charge of the movies for the next wee while, so I see a lot of Sci- Fi in our future. 

 

I wonder if I can slip Alien or Event Horizon into the list :ph34r:

Over the weekend I watched my usual Night of the Living Dead (riff version). Original is my favorite, but I need to find an option for the remake, it's at least as good as the original. Love both. I usually watch the original, as it, along with Return, were staples in the band house. Bugged that the riffers used the colorized edition, but it's a nice change of pace.

 

I also watched some classic horror, TCM was running a ton of great stuff and I loaded up the DVR. Lots of Hammer stuff, tons of Legosi and Lee. Even got the fiancee into some of them, and she hates horror and dislikes old movies (though she's quickly becoming a fan now that she's actually watching some classics). I sort-of watched 28 Days Later and feel it has not aged well at all.

 

There were a couple I was going to get back to, but the mood wasn't right for horror, overall. Session 9 is one of my favorites, so darned good.

      Better late than never.

      Here's some fun Pumpkin Horrors I painted up for @Inarah for Secret Sophie this past December.  I was still riding on my Halloween spirit when Secret Sophie began, but wanted to do something that fit the winter theme.  Inspired by the snowman-like design of the Pumpkin horrors and my own past mistakes of leaving pumpkins outside to rot all winter, I decided to do a holiday mashup with these guys left out in the cold too long.

      With some time having passed, I wish I would have made them look a bit rotten and frost-bitten, but I also like the more colorful result.

      These were some fun minis and my first time working with metal.  I have now broken the seal and have started looking into other minis that I previously considered off-limits.  I also enjoyed participating in Secret Sophie and joining in to some of the forum shenanigans.  I highly recommend participating in these kinds of things for any who have been reticent.
       
      What are some of your favorite holiday minis?

      This is Reaper's Elise the Witch.

      Once she was part of a big Halloween Diorama but that didn't survive the move.
      I was able to save the minis though.
       
      I rebased her, gave her some highlights/ repainted parts.
      She's back in action now, ready to turn you into a frog or a willing servant.

      I know, I know, 2020 is scary enough, but here are some spooky miniatures.

      Not super sure where to post this but this made the most sense to me. I found some fantastic miniature pumpkins at my local Joann Fabrics.
       

       
      Hopefully you can find them elsewhere if you don't have a Joann's.
      They come in $10 bags that are pretty big. I don't see myself ever needing to buy more. 
       

       
      They say "fall drieds" which makes me think they're some kind of organic. But they have the consistency of some kind of acorn or pinecone. So pretty solid. I don't think they'd deteriorate but if you're worried I'm sure a sealant of some kind would do the trick. 
       

       
      They come in a mix of sizes but they all look pretty good at 28mm scale. The cutting mat has half-inch squares.
      Most of the pumpkins are of the artistically exaggerated size compared to a mini, and the smaller ones tend to be darker and a bit more mishapen. The coloration in them is pretty decent. I think they could use a layer of highlights but if you're in a hurry or making a huge pumpkin patch, then they look just fine. 
       
      Anyways, I hope this is useful for someone!

      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.
