The Hand of Fate

Elorhan brings us this set of Futhark casting runes inscribed on human hand bones.  The aging treatment does a great job of disguising they're resin.

Hand of Glory

FatherofMonstersFX brings us this nicely done Hand of Glory prop. At first glance I didn't like the fleshiness of the digits and the rounded finger tips.  It turns out I was judging it on the basis of how a purely dessicated hand looks.  It's actually a good representation of a body part that was pickled in alcohol and then dried.

Redcap Goblin

Jacob Petersson returns to our pages with the mummified remains of a particularly horrific species of fae.
"The Redcap goblins are evil creatures, they reside in ancient castle ruins along the Scottish border, ecpecially those places with a bloody or dark history.  The Redcap traditionally dyes it's cap in the blood of it's victims, should the cap be dry for too long the goblin itself will shrivel up to a dry husk.  This one- ”Iron-nosed Fulk” was found by locals between the foundation stones of the Easter Happrew peel tower after a thunderous storm blew it over in the year 1798."

It Bites

Riptides, toxic algae blooms, carnivorous beach dwellers....Karen Main brings us this curious creature erupting from the rocks above the tideline.  Yet another demonstration that Lovecraft had good reason to loathe the sea.
