The Bowen Legacy

Jason McKittrick brings us another wonderful Mythos prop collection. This one is based on "The Haunter of the Dark" and recreates the materials gathered by Enoch Bowen during his expedition to Egypt.

The complete collection in it's presentation case.

A tableau of all the props. The ephemera really helps build up the story around the main pieces.

The mummified finger of Nephren Ka. The detail work on the joints really makes this. That might seem like a minor detail, but it's one of the first things your eyes will scan. You've spent your whole life staring at the pressure ridges formed by an unflexed finger joint, so any inconsistencies pop right out.

An Egyptian-style statuette of Nyarlathotep. Fear the Black Pharaoh!

The Scroll of the Black Pharaoh, made from real papyrus. The aging treatment is outstanding.

The complete set is available on Ebay.

The Nyarlathotep ushabti figure is a nice touch. I presume the features are epoxy ribbon or polymer clay. The bitumen blackened figure is really a good piece of work and the yellow fingernail just says: yuck! Good job.

Real, blank Egyptian papyrus can be found on line for those who wish to try their hand at early style manuscripts. By the way, there are scarabs of all kinds of materials available on line. The steatite ones can be found blank or ground down to put your own eldritch cartouche on the underside. Just say: “Hey dude, where’s my Apep”? – sorry that’s an early Easter joke.
