Pirates, monsters, myths, slaying giants, and the challenge of surviving in space await you. Come check out this week’s batch of crowdfunding highlights!
Why Pirates vs Cthulhu? The inspiration came from my 6 year old daughter’s [art] who apparently carries the tentacle gene of the Lovecraft family. She surprised me with a picture and explained how ‘Kululu’ was fighting against pirates. Admittedly, she has seen some of my Cthulhu scuplts and she was quick to pick up on the mythos.

Age of Antiquity is a historical fantasy campaign setting compatible with the 5th edition of the world’s most popular role-playing game. Though inspired by true history, Age of Antiquity is an epic fantasy world equally inspired by the storied mythologies of ancient cultures. Mythical beasts prowl the untamed wilds outside the safe walls of the grand cities and powerful yet capricious Gods have direct influence in the lives of mortals, leading them in titanic clashes against rival pantheons.

Essentially, this artifact is a set of dice made from skulls, lots of teeny-tiny skulls fused together to form a polyhedral. Then we place a digits on its faces, we paint them, or we use metal. And it is done manually, or as the Living say: handmade. Much detail, much care, much time. And we can make the dice bigger! With the equally amazing results! Can you imagine how much work it takes to assemble so many skulls into such crafty dice? No? Well, a lot, yess.
The dice themselves are made from beige resin, and then painted with brown wash paint, hence the skulls details are so terrific and slightly varies in each set. The digits, needed to challenge the fate-being, remain beige. Each dice set includes: 1 x D4, 1 x D6, 1 x D8, 1 x D10, 1 x D100, 1 x D12 & 1 x D20.
Pledges start at $16 for one bone colored set of 17mm dice.
