Monster: Greater Pumpkin Head

Some farmers cultivate plants which create larger than normal fruit.  Some dark mages take advantage of that fact to create these monstrosities. 

Greater Pumpkin Head
Large Construct, Enchanted (uncommon)
Armour Class: 4
Hit Dice: 8
Move: 90' (30')
Attacks: 1 Claw or Thrown Pumpkin
Damage: 2d8 or 1d8 + Special
No. Appearing: 1
Save As: F10
Morale: 12
Treasure Type: U

Alignment: chaotic

The Greater Pumpkin Head, much like it's lesser form, is formed mostly of vines and leaves, topped by a large jack-o'-lantern.  In combat the Greater Pumpkin Head will toss gourds at it's opponents (range 60/120/200).  These gourds will hit for 1d8 points of damage, and then explode in a fiery burst for an additional 1d8 points of damage to all within 10 feet.  On a miss the gourd will still land at the target spot and explode as above.
