The end of September is nearly here which means Halloween is just around the corner. It’s time for the ethereal spirits of the dead to rise from their burial places and haunt your characters.
Here are five graveyard ghosties ready to drift about your lonely cemetery, abandoned house, or forgotten battlefield.
Each spirit sports a tormented visage. Wails of the damned emanate from their distended mouths.
Perhaps they are trying to seek help from the living to right a wrong in their past life. Or maybe they just enjoy causing fear in whomever they encounter.
These miniatures are sculpted in the 25-28mm game scale. Ghostly spirits can appear in nearly any style of role-playing game or table top miniatures game. Fantasy, horror, pulp, science fiction, they all can be enlivened by a phantom or two.

, our man is busy with many duties around the manor house
, including setting the table ware for the family and guests. He is also quite capable with his rifle
in dissuading unwanted guests.
Last, but not least, is Cook
. A marvel in the kitchen in preparing many wondrous dishes. She also is handy at applying her rolling pin to the heads of any miscreant
who enters her domain. When harsher punishment is called for, she is rather handy with a revolver
Never under estimate the value of good help.

The Lady wears an elegant gown perfect for an evening of entertaining her guests as lady of the manor.
Yes, these two upstanding community leaders are certain that everything is right in their ordered world. Of course, dark eldar gods, crazed cultists, and criminal masterminds may have different opinions!
