Yeah, the Pumpkin Monster would make the basis for a great D&D Mimic or two as well.
The Herne mini is based on Herne the Hunter as described and illustrated in William Ainsworth's 1843 novel Windsor Castle (Project Gutenberg text link - see especially Book I, Chapter X; Wikimedia Commons image link from the early published editions of the novel; Antohammer and I had some discussions behind the scenes about this character earlier).
Herne first appeared in English texts in Shakespeare's Merry Wives of Windsor (Act 4, Scene 4, lines 28-41), as the evil ghost of a gamekeeper, who was seen by a lightning-blasted oak in the forest on midwinter nights, looking like a tall human with great stag-antlers coming from his head. Ainsworth's version was more demonic, hunting for human souls to be signed away, and accompanied by imps and lesser demons. This Herne rode on a great fire-breathing horse, with two hounds called Saturn and Dragon running alongside him, and followed by a cavalcade of dead humans - particularly executed criminals - and living humans who had signed away their souls to him.
