“Ia! Ia! Cthulhu fhtagn!” Cthulhu rises!.... Mythos Foundry is proud to bring you a Cthulhu sculpture in approximately 1/61 scale.

My goal with Mythos Foundry is to provide finely crafted miniatures, sculptures, art prints, gaming gear, and collectables. This Kickstarter will help in laying a foundation for this.

The funding of this Kickstarter will allow us to produce the model kits, miniatures and art prints. Funding will also go towards the production of a web site for Mythos Foundry.

Cthuhlu is a work in progress. These images will be updated as the sculpt progresses.

Cthulhu Pledge Levels and above:

Available Miniatures for add-ons:

Miniature Sets add-ons:

The Hermit of Providence: H.P. Lovecraft + Sonia Greene, $15

Area 51: Roy + General + Autopsy Alien, $20

The Mountains of Madness: Elder Thing + Cold Weather Investigator + Albino Penguin, $30

Miniatures: The miniatures are in Trü 30™. Trü 30™ is approximately 1/61 (1/60.96) scale, where a six foot tall human would be 30mm to the top of the head. All the models in the Trü 30™ range will maintain the 1/61 scale to each other (Cthulhu is also in Trü 30™).

A pledge of $150 at the Cthulhu Level is an amazing deal, as the Cthulhu kit will retail for $300. All miniatures unlocked during the stretch goals will also be added free to the Cthulhu, Elder Thing, and Old Ones Levels.

The miniatures and Cthulhu sculpt will be cast by Ed Fortae at Troll Forged Miniatures.

Art Prints: There are four levels of art prints;

Stretch Goal #3 $14,000: Miniature - Wilbur Whateley, Achieved!

"It was partly human, beyond a doubt, with very man-like hands and head, and the goatish, chinless face had the stamp of the Whateleys upon it. But the torso and lower parts of the body were teratologically fabulous, so that only generous clothing could ever have enabled it to walk on earth unchallenged or uneradicated." ("The Dunwich Horror")

Wilbur Whateley from "The Dunwich Horror". 43mm. Add on to your pledge for $10, Cthulhu Level and above will receive one free!

Stretch Goal #5 $18,000: Miniature - 1:6 Scale Ghoul Bust. Achieved!

“These figures were seldom completely human, but often approached humanity in varying degree. Most of the bodies, while roughly bipedal, had a forward slumping, and a vaguely canine cast. The texture of the majority was a kind of unpleasant rubberiness.” (“Pickman’s Model”)

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

As a Creative Director and Production Manager I am well versed in the pitfalls and challenges of the production environment. My main experience has been in the print industry which is fast paced with quick turn arounds and large volumes.

Teaming up with Troll Forged Miniatures is also a great benefit as Ed has proven that he can deliver a great product.

One of the biggest challenges will be figuring out the best method to cast the Cthulhu kit. With Ed's expertise and a realistic delivery date I am confident that we will be able to deliver a great product to you.

    Last updated:
  • Simply pledge the amount it would take to cover the cost of all levels and add-ons. If you are selecting a limited numbered item (ie. the Cthulhu levels) make sure you select that as your reward so that you are guaranteed that item.

    After the project ends we will send out a survey to all backers. At that time you will be able to select the specific options you have funded.
