About this project


It was a day like everyday in Q WORKSHOP office. We talked about some new dice designs, dealt with some customers requests, solved a pending shipping issue… And then our graphic designer called us all to his desk. This does not happen often, believe me - it’s usually us coming to him with some last-minute-urgent-I need to have it before 2pm stuff.

- I’ve been having bad dreams lately - he said with a shaky voice. - Some very bad dreams.

- About what? - said someone cheerfully. Oh, had we known what expected us!

- The horror... The horror. And tentacles, and many mouths full of teeth. I’m still shaking when I think about that. But it made me design this - murmured the artist. We just laughed. But then we abruptly stopped laughing when he showed us what was on the screen.

Since then, this image has been tormenting us, and we finally decided that we needed to release it to the world. We do hope that this will keep our Sanity in check, although you can never know…

Ladies and gentlemen, behold the CALL OF CTHULHU RPG METAL DICE!

This is a set of full metal dice, made of tin and painted in black. The numbers and ornaments are engraved in dice, thus ensuring their top quality. They are practically indestructible - and they come with the lifelong guarantee in case something bad happens.

The dice are officially approved by Chaosium, Inc. to accompany you during your Call of Cthulhu Roleplaying Game sessions. Of course you can also use them as fancy dice during any other campaign, if it includes tentacled monsters and/or Gods from the Outer Space. Or you can just put them on the shelf and let them haunt your dreams. We won’t be checking that, although the Great Cthulhu might - this is always a possibility.

And here's an opinion on the dice from Mike Mason from Chaosium:

The dice set contains 1xD4, 1xD6, 1xD8, 1xD10, 1xD12, 1xD20 and 1xD100 (percentile).

Here are the dimensions of the dice:


The total weight of the set is 163.25 grams / 5.75 oz.

We will make the dice in our own factory in Poland, EU. This gives us full control over the process and assures that there are no shipping delays.

Thanks to our long term cooperation with many US partners, we know how to pack our products well, and we've worked through basically anything that can happen with shipping.


  Please remember that every time a Stretch Goal is "added to all pledges", it DOES NOT include Junior Investigator pledge level.

I generally like Q-workshop's dice, but this design doesn't do much for me.  To my slowly aging eyes the borders merge into a wide series of lines connecting holes from a short viewing distance.  At that point they don't look particularly like tentacles or orifices.

These dice are a cute idea, but the faces are far too busy with unnecessary scribbling. Besides, metal dice will ding up my wood table too much.

      This is the 22nd project my wife and I have worked side by side together on. Posted tbis on Facebook but first time adding our project to the forums. I hope you like our Interpretation of the KS  Mammoth not sure if the is a SKU for it. C&C more than welcome. Felt with it being a mammoth a more wintery theme should be more in keeping. Enjoy. Stay safe in these troubled times.

      I know there are a few folks that do Bolt Action and similar 28mm wargaming (@buglips), so I thought I'd bounce this out there.
      Railroads are an important means to transport troops, equipment, ammunition and all other kinds of supply to the front. Especially in a country as vast as the Soviet Union with it's endless steppes, only few reliable roads and no major rivers running in the direction of the German advance during Operation Barbarossa in World War II. 
      With this set of detailed buildings and rolling stock in 1/56 scale for 28mm figures you get the opportunity to recreate the crucial fighting around the Soviet railroad system.
      The kits focus on the major pieces of rolling stock available to the Soviet defenders: box cars, gondola cars and flat cars. And the mighty ALCo RSD-1 Diesel Engine which was made available under the US Lend-Lease Act.
      Also included is a typical rural train station with optional additional platforms for all who want to depict a Soviet - or captured German - supply depot, where heavy equipment like tanks and guns are being unloaded.
      And for all of you looking for an armored train - don't worry! We have you covered.
        Talking about railroad tracks:
      We did not see the need to reinvent the wheel, so all kits are designed to be used with
      4Ground Railroad Tracks (available as add-ons to the Kickstarter) or O Gauge Model Railroad Tracks The kits include optional parts enabling you to choose your favorite system while assembling. Going this route has allowed us to concentrate on designing and producing the rolling stock only, which has the advantage of an earlier fulfillment date for the Kickstarter.
      All models are highly detailed on the outside and inside. The interiors are easily accessible, as roofs are removable. In addition, all doors are moveable, which means you can open or close them during gameplay.

      A Viking Girl sculpted by Bobby Jackson. She was a lot of fun to paint since she had a lot of canvas for freehand work. She is also my first serious effort at NMM, so that's a well I plan to return to.
      I came to paint her when I asked my friends which model needed to get some love next. I presented a wizard, a ranger, and an armored lady fighter. One chimes in that she'd like to see the fighter (she being a practitioner of HEMA). Her boyfriend mentions something about boob armor. I said, no, she's got pretty normal armor. You want to see something egregious? THIS is egregious. My HEMA friend immediately says, "I'd like to change my vote." So here we are.
      Here's the WIP thread for her. Here's my next piece.

      This has sod all to do with miniatures, but I would be surprised if there were not people who might want one of these pins, for literally any reason at all.
      I'll let the campaign speak for itself, as I usually do; it is pins. There are, as the title implies, representations for most of the common faiths, in a literal rainbow of ... well, Pride rainbows.

      "You take your game seriously. Now it's time for a serious screen.
      In October of 2018, Dog Might released the first fully sculpted GM Screen, the Valhalla Screen. Since then, we have released over 30 more designs, including officially licensed screens for: Pathfinder, Call of Cthulhu, and Vampire: The Masquerade. We have also designed screens for you favorite shows, such as Relics and Rarities and the Critical Role stream of Undeadwood. Over the last year and a half, our Valhalla Screens have proven to be our most sought after product. "
      ... Would it surprise anybody here to know I want one? 
      If I can't have one, at least I can spread the word. ;p
