The Horror in Clay

Russian artist Girhash Angbandskaya brings us this recreation of the bas-relief from "The Call of Cthulhu".  I believe the original sculpt was for a prop featured in an amateur film, but the language barrier makes it difficult to say that for sure.

The Amulets

Phil Bolton shares a few of his protective amulets with us.  Supernatural creatures aren't big believers in diversity.  If you don't have a culturally appropriate defensive artifact they'll just sneer at your naivety while munching your juicy bits.

Cthulhu Fhtagn! Henderson Edition.

Fox Henderson returns to our pages with this faux-bronze Cthulhu idol patterned after a traditional Buddha icon. He's not the first to take a trip down that stylistic road, but it's one of the best.

Fallout Posters

MattTheKid brings us close to a dozen posters from the Fallout universe.  A few are based on in-game images, but the majority are well thought out conjectural pieces. 

Words cannot describe how much anticipation I have for the rumored announcement of Fallout 4 next month.  Since downloading "Fallout: New Vegas" during Christmas vacation last year I've become a fan of open world games, but I keep coming back to Vegas as the high-water mark of the genre.  In a perfect world Bethesda would release a game that combines the history and lore of Fallout with the environmental mayhem of something like "Just Cause 2" or "Grand Theft Auto V".
