Pumpkin Horrors (03356)

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.

The first Horror is pretty simple.  Though I do find it odd that he's wearing an extra pumpkin atop his head.  He did have the best design for the snow accumulation on his back though.

The witchy horror gave me some trouble in finding a suitable color for her hat.  But otherwise fairly simple.

And finally the fancy horror.  A bit of flashing was hanging off of his hat brim that just seemed perfect as an icicle.

 

I noticed while working on them how they could easily represent pumpkin versions of Lock, Shock, and Barrel from the Nightmare Before Christmas.  If I were to do them again I might lean into that.

 

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?

Love it and it is great that you had the foresight to get these done 8 months early.  Well done. 

 

They were done in November and sent in December.  I just didn't get around to editing photos for awhile.  Thought about waiting until it was seasonal again but didn't feel like waiting! XD

They are wonderful, thank you. I really love the "frost on the pumpkin" vibe they have going on.  They have a place of honor in my display cabinet, and I am looking forward to putting them on the table in some future weird Halloween game. 

 

Reaper has some leprechauns that are fun. I don't see them painted too often.

I'm glad you liked them!  If you ever find a gaming use for them I'd love to hear about it!

I'll have to check out those leprechauns!

That was what set them apart for me...the frost that is. It is a WONDERFUL imaginative touch to a trio of SPLENDIDLY painted Horrors. VERY WELL DONE!
