Cthulhu Fhtagn! Johnson Edition.
This nicely done Cthulhu idol comes to us from sculptor Jake Johnson. The texture work really stands out. The detailed wrinkling of the facial area provides an interesting contrast to the smoothness along the back of the head. And the eyes! That's an insanely great paint job.
Brazilian artist Rodrigo Cali brings us this cool collection of items from a Dungeons and Dragons adventure. I'm surprised we don't see more fantasy RPG props. "Call of Cthulhu" embraced prop documents and handouts as a natural outgrowth of its primarily investigative nature. You would think traditional fantasy games would be filled with reproductions of scrolls, maps, and plunder. The plethora of high end gaming accessories, like miniatures, battlemats, DM screens, etc., show a desire to…
This impressive Dagon statuette comes to us via Polish miniatures blogger Incubus. Google's translation isn't entirely clear, but it's apparently a prestige casting from Black Thunder Studio. Based on the pictures in the original post it measures around 7" in height. I suspect there are more gems like this in Eastern Europe, but the language barrier makes finding them difficult.
Finneusg crafted this mythos tablet as a game prop. I like how the finish recreates the look of blasted slag.

The glassworks may be long gone, but it's rare that tons of glass cullet and furnace slag weren't left behind.
Maika Keuben is busy with so many Cthulhumas preparations. She’s got her tree ready and a wreath for the door, and now she’s baked Cthulhumas cookies! Dozens and dozens of chocolate cookies with peppermint-flavored icing, all in the image of the dreaded elder god Cthulhu.At first it just sounded like wind in the trees, but beneath that there's the guttural whisper of an ancient voice saying "Into the kitchen with you, there's unspeakable baking to be done." Now my throat is sore from the…
The R'lyeh Oculus
The talented Gage Prentiss returns to our pages with "The R'lyeh Oculus". It's a brilliant concept, and the sculpt embedded inside the resin is wonderfully alien. When he would gaze into the Oculus, he would fall into a waking dream. Sometimes he would shoot through the ebon depths of the sea like a fish. Other times he would see spectral lights, and impossible cities under the waves. The excitement and freedom he would feel during these times would always wilt under a dark feeling, though…
