Tillinghast Field Warning Sign

I'm getting some stickers of this made up, but if you can't wait feel free to print out your own.  Just right click and "Open Link in New Tab", download the 2" by 2" graphic, and print on sticker paper.  It's not only a Mythos prop, but a "Call of Duty" prop as well!

Fallout Recharger Rifle

Ratchet from the Replica Prop Forum brings this recreation of the Recharger Rifle from "Fallout:New Vegas".   The game model is a wonderfully stylized, deco-influenced design.  His writeup of crafting the prop version includes some nice work-in-progress shots.
