For the English speakers in the audience (such as myself), it translates to well… I’m not 100% sure. Knowing the crowd I hang out with, and those crazy Germans, it probably translates into “Ghord Evisceration Day.” You get the general gidst though, I had a date with a vegetable.
For the past five years, my friend Ryan has held this event at his house, and I dutifully show up and carve myself a pumpkin. Well, to be technically correct, I’ve been spending my Kurbisschnitzens carving pumpkin-shaped styrofoam. I really don’t like working with the medium, as it doesn’t light up as well, and it’s much harder to carve, but on the plus side, they keep significantly longer (ie. forever), and are considerably less messy. Each year, I put out all of the pumpkins I’ve carved from years past in addition to the one I did this year.
It’s not ideal, but I’m happy with it–especially since last year I tried to make an Ork, but had to convert it into a samurai zombie when it lost it’s orkiness. Perhaps I’m just jaded, but I think it looks like a Tyranid… what do you think?
How about you guys: Are there any other 40k pumpkin carvers out there this year?
