Here's the start of the Viking-age Mythos project. Conceptually, I'm aiming for a collection of items that a 10th century Norse cultist would have on hand. The centerpiece is Fox Henderson's excellent Norse Cthulhu idol. Frankly, the pictures don't do it justice. It's a beautiful sculpt and the piece has a really nice heft to it.
The coins are hand-struck reproductions of period examples ranging from Middle Eastern Dirhems to Viking silver pennies. They're based on documented examples recovered from buried Viking hoards. A black wash will bring out the details of the coin faces.
The amber Elder Sign is the polymer clay test piece I mentioned last week. It does a good job of replicating the look of the real stuff and I plan on doing a number of small faux-amber items. The Elder Sign is just a stand-in at this point, since it obviously makes no sense for a cultist to have one.
The flint and steel are, well, flint and steel. C-shaped strikers are period, but I'm going to try and track down one with some interesting ornamentation.
