Big Box o' Mutant Babies

Intellectually I know this is just a picture of some very well made props stored in a box.  Viscerally, it's one of the more disturbing images I've stumbled across on the internet.  This box of mutant babies comes to us from the talented Ivan Naumenko.

For the Emperor!

There's LARPing, and then there's "Sweet fancy Moses this is insane" LARPing. Reality Workshop brings us an example of the latter with this incredible Warhammer 40K Inquisitor's retinue.

The Mörkergubbe

"Mörkergubbe is a magical creature, that is steeped in centuries of mystique and dark science. These creatures were believed to possess arcane knowledge that granted them supernatural powers to command and control the forces of nature. And Mörkergubbe yet practice these lost arts, from ancient times often helping the human alchemists in philosophical and protoscientific tradition to purify, mature, and perfect certain objects."

The gifted Alice Tochylovska returns to our pages with one of the few surviving Mörkergubbe.  You really need to click through and check out the entire gallery of pictures

Great Cthulhu

This octopoidal Cthulhu idol comes to us from Juna Handmade.  As I was giving it the "Cthulhu Idols" tag I realized we've featured well over 300 different sculpts over the years.   That's easily a record for any kind of literary prop, outside of books like the "Harry Potter" series that have been turned into film franchises.

Touched By Cthulhu

The Crawling Chaos

Nigma Studios is kicking off a new line of Mythos-based figures with this immense (55cm/21") take on Nyarlathotep.  It's a beautiful variation on the tripedal depiction that's become popular over the last decade, trading the goofy accordion pleated legs for sinuous, curling tentacles.
