Pumpkin Head

There’s only one use for this bizarre ‘Swamp Thing’ style miniature that I can think of.

A pumpkin head horror, part natural spirit, part animated vegetation stalking the inhabitants of an 18th Century American Colonial hamlet. Angry at the loss of his ancestral lands under the plough he’s picking off individuals at dusk as they attend to their crops or hunt game in the woods. The local Native Americans know all about him of course but the Colonialists think he’s a wild superstition concocted by the Natives to divert blame for their murderous activities against the settlers.

The idea could easily be extended out to a fantasy wargame using Pumpkin Head as a GM controlled monster stirred into action upon the PC’s units entering a particular area of woodland etc.
