Well, I'm a little late... or very early. Anyhow, here is my 01525 Santa Dwarf by Jason Wiebe. I had prepared this one hoping to paint it in December, but I didn't have the chance to complete it before the holidays. So here it is now. I wish you all the best for this new year, keep on painting.
All Of Them VVitches: A Grave Mistake, feat. Headless Footman, Grave Minions, and Bones Punkin-Headed BugbearBy Rigel
There are those that say that the monks at St. Fiacre's should not plant their vegetables so close to the churchyard, that it is unseemly to fatten the marrows, squashes, and pumpkins so close to human bones filled with human marrow.
Of course, the same voices don't complain when those same vegetables come to market, ripe and full of rich flavor. But that is another tale, and...
...wait, what is this?
Who comes here at this hour?
A ruffian in disguise, bent on disturbing the bones in the cemetary?!
Nay, ruffians plural! Grave robbers, here to trouble those at long rest under stone!
And who is this?!
A sinister figure, clearly the ringleader.
"Go now, and find me that wizard's grave!"
A little foxfire around the eyes and mouth of a carved pumpkin will frighten the superstitious into thinking these grave-robbers are haints.
"Not one stone in ten is as it was in the old times; be sure where ye dig!"
"Wait, lads--what is that light?!"
"That's no sexton's lamp! Take to your heels, boys!"
It is, perhaps, only fair that those who mock Jack O'The Lantern get to see the original. A variant of Jack In the Green, easily summoned.
"YOU WHO TRESPASS ON THE ROW / YOUR FLESH WILL MAKE THE PUMPKINS GROW"
"'Tis every man for himself, lads, and devil take the hindmost!"
"TAKE THE HINDMOST? SO BE IT!"
"AH HA HA HA HAAAAA!"
As I said, the pumpkins from St. Fiacre's are always welcome at market. Something about the tender flesh and delicate taste, the kind you don't find elsewhere.
Rumors that a wealthy patron of the monastery was a sorcerer are just that--old wives' tales. And the story of a guardian appointed to keep his rest secure 'till doomsday? Obviously also fictitious.
Old wives will talk; this is well-known.
Hello everyone, here are some ensemble pictures of my entry in the "Dia de los Muertos" Sugar Skull Painting Contest. I had simply posted a closeup photo of the skull for the contest. This is the Bones version of 77116, Colossal Skeleton sculpted by Jason Wiebe. This Undead is Huge, 120mm tall, almost 5 inches. Notice I repositioned its arms and removed the shrouds that were hanging between its legs.
The other elements on the base are from Reaper Miniatures as well. There are 77528, Graveyard Ruined Fences by Bob Ridolfi, a 77531, Graveyard Fence Post and 77731, Gargoyle Finials also by Bob Ridolfi, a 77538, Gravestone of Sorrow sculpted by Julie Guthrie and one of the 77534, Tombstones sculpted by Kevin Williams. I used roots, birch tree seed hulls and various synthetic mosses to complete the scene. The base is 75mm (3 inches) wide and was 3d printed. Enjoy!

It's that time of year for Orcs...but I already did that. So it's time to get spooky instead!
Here's my latest from Bones V (and recent promos) on that front.
