Unholy Icon

The gifted Maarten Verhoeven returns to our pages with this fantastic piece, Corrupted.  The adornments and spiky halo really give it the feel of an evil religious icon.

Kobold Kaboom

You kids today and your dragonkin kobolds don't know how good you have it.  I'm old enough to remember when D&D kobolds were canines.  Now get off my lawn!

No matter what kind of kobolds you favor, including the original Germanic fae, they'll be even more mischievous than normal with this nifty bronze kobold bomb, complete with charging powder, from Burned Raven Tales.

Macabre Mermaid

Umbrateca returns to our pages with this dead mermaid specimen.  I can only imagine how long it took to apply all those miniature scales.

Dem Bones

This horrible specimen of a deformed juvenile skull comes to us from the purveyor of all things osseous, Spooky Jack.  And by "horrible" I mean fantastic.

Bound in Flesh

I've been walking this earth for over sixty years, and I'm still stunned that making the binding of a book out of human beings isn't just a horror movie trope.  Luckily, this fleshy tome from Karen Main was clearly bound with the flesh of something definitely not human.

Tools of the Trade

This well done LARP healer's kit comes to us from Broken Wand.  All the instruments are cast in combat-safe foam, so you can go from patching up your companions to plunging a scalpel into an opponent.

Back to the Wasteland

Almost ten years ago I fell in love with Fallout: New Vegas.  Since then there have been two more installments in the video game franchise, neither of which came come anywhere close to the immersiveness and storytelling of New Vegas.  That craftsmanship, and a still thriving mod community, mean I'm still diving back into the game every couple of months.

That's all a set-up to explain why I'm so excited about the new Fallout project.  No, not the long-awaited Fallout series that premiered early on Amazon Prime last night, although I'm jazzed for that as well.  I watched the first episode last night and absolutely loved it.

I'm actually talking about Fallout: Breaking, a direct sequel to the amazing Fallout: Nuka Break fan series.  Zack Finrock has been posting some previews of the project, including some cool prop work, over on his Twitter account.  Based on the previews, and my love of the original, I think there are a lot of reasons to throw a few dollars his way.
