    In the old Disney version of Sleepy Hollow he had this awsome attack b: an exploding, flaming jack'o'lantern that he'd throw at his victims.:lol:

    I can't wait to see what you guys come up with in the next couple of months.:goodjob:

    not true...its a Horror monster...they have nothing to do with realism or physics...

    like vampires not having reflections...tho I do think that the feather on the shadow's hat should be clipped a bit...and if a flaming pumpkin was added thatd be awesome...

    Yup, it's the Hussar ('cause he was a Hessian).

    I saw Tim Burton's remake (all though it wasn't historical accurate) it inspired me. :D

    Well, that actor wasn't too keen on having his head cut off, so they had to use innocent bystanders as stunt doubles. Without the "stunt" part.

    Clip that shadow of the head off, and it'll be perfect!

    I like it,i was always trying to harbor the idea of a headless horseman for awhile now.Hopefully someone can make one from scratch with a pumpkin head being enflamed while throwing it toward suspecting enemies.Just an idea.
