Great Cthulhu

This nicely done Cthulhu figure comes to us from artist Evan Tortorelli.  I really like the anatomical details on the head, in particular his take on the multiple eyes.

I'm a big advocate of journaling tabletop role-playing games.  An in-character narrative mixed with ephemera and documents is a great way to keep track of story details and create a truly memorable record of the character's adventures.  Delinyer Diek demonstrates just how cool that can be with this in-character illustration of a Byakhee.

Japanese artist Akihito brings us this impressive Cthulhu lamp.  The quality of the sculpt is impeccable, and it's all the more impressive when backlit.

Fear the Three Eyed Goat!

The three-eyed goat is a common incarnation of Baphomet.  Depending on your point of view, he's either a figure of occult wisdom or demonic influence.  As Patrick Magee demonstrates, that doesn't mean he can't also be amazingly cute.

The Favor of Mother Hydra

Jason McKittrick returns to our pages with this cool Innsmouth whaler pendant, a faux scrimshaw depiction of Mother Hydra.  Back when I lived in New Bedford, MA one of my favorite places to visit was the whaling museum.  This would be right at home in one of the artifact displays.

The Greatest Cthulhu

I believe we have a new title-holder for "Worlds Largest Cthulhu".  This massive sculpt from scenic artist Tamara Lujan easily beats the previous champion, the wall sculpture at the much missed Storm Crow Tavern in Vancouver.

Star Stone of Minar

I examined the thing in my hand. It was of course a star-stone, featureless, gray-green; the thing might easily have been a small, fossil starfish. Crow, too, gave his stone a thoughtful examination, then said: “So these are the star-stones of ancient Mnar.”

 “Yes,” Peaslee agreed. “Except you couldn’t call these stones exactly ancient. They are samples from Miskatonic’s kilns—but for all that, they’re just as powerful as the real things.”

I love when someone takes a shot at the more obscure props of the Mythos.  This recreation of the Star Stones from Brian Lumley's Titus Crow stories is from artist Uriel Bant.

The Monkey's Paw

"The Monkey's Paw" by W.W. Jacobs was written in 1902 and is still one of the most effective horror stories ever set to paper.  John Pinkerton of the Monster Sandbox brings us the tale's titular artifact.  Remember, be careful what you wish for.

Altar of the Necronomicon

The talented George Tsougkouzidis returns to our pages with his latest piece, the Necronomicon Altar.  As always, his texture work is mind-boggling.
