Found in a farmhouse near Dunwich.... This is a unholy idol of Arwassa for a handout to players of the Call of Cthulhu game.

Image based of of Chaosiums "Ye Booke of Monstres -volume II" I had to reposition the legs as the image had it flying and I needed a cultists idol for a game prop.

I put one of my older guns behind it to give it a classic feel, it's a Dreyse 1907 32.acp pocket pistol.

This is cool. It's simple, and yet effective. Really looks like an ancient statue.

Thank you, I try to use chemicals that will react with the paint to create a real patina.

Thanks, it's fun to mix my love of art, with my love of guns and history. The Dreyse is such a nutty gun I can imagine some half mad investigator carrying one. Why is it nutty, just try aiming one :)

Thanks!!

No I don't play Arkham Horror, but I've thought about buying it.

I play Chaosium's Call of Cthulhu RPG...why is Arwassa in the Arkham Horror game too?

You're very welcome!

I recommend it, I love the game personally. Just set up/clean up can take a while. But its a great way to spend an evening with friends! :D

Ah ok! I have a friend who plays that as well! I personally play D&D and add in Lovecraftian themes and monsters :D

Most of the monsters from Lovecraft's stories are included in the game (along most of the characters in the form of allies), but some have different names. I think Arwassa is in there, but under the name "Crawling one"
