Amongst my many little obsessions is pumpkin heads, especially evil pumpkin heads*. I don’t know where it comes from, or why it has stuck with me over the years, but it has.
A couple of years ago, either for a birthday or Christmas, my buddy Phil gave me a small pack of resin pumpkin heads, I think from Puppets of War (although I could be wrong about that). For whatever reason, these heads sat in my bits box for years.
The other day, I just felt really compelled to paint up a pumpkin head, so I quickly threw this guy together. Apart from the head, the rest of the bits come from the Frostgrave Cultists box. I gave him a skeletal arm as I thought I could paint it to look like sticks, which I think as worked pretty well.
In truth, I’m pretty pleased with him. In fact, I like him so much, I have decided that a full pumpkin-headed Frostgrave warband needs to be one of my little projects for the year. Of course, I’m going to need some special rules for that, so look for ‘Vegimancer’ rules coming later this year (possibly for Halloween).
