What is Slumbering Oblivion? In it’s current form, Slumbering Oblivion is a new line of 32mm scaled miniatures influenced by the works of HP Lovecraft and his Cthulhu mythos. The future will be a fully realized tabletop war game where you can pit the minions of Cthulhu against the advanced warriors of humankind.
It is based on the premise that the works of HP Lovecraft were not purely fiction, but based on the horrible reality that Cthulhu is real. This is the reason why we know more about the surface of the moon than our own oceans. And the truth behind many sightings of mysterious sea creatures that have been reported as long as humans have recorded history such as the Kraken, Leviathan and sea serpents. However, forces had worked for millennia to suppress this knowledge from the world. Secret powers influencing and directing mankind away from the ocean. But eventually mankind’s greed for the wealth beneath the ocean floor proved too much and that which should have remained hidden was uncovered. And now mankind is in a war, not just for the planet, but for its very survival as a species. A prospect that will prove impossible should Cthulhu awaken and stride forth from his city of R’lyeh.
ONLINE STORE IS NOW OPEN!
I am happy to announce that our online store is now open and the miniatures from our Kickstarter are now available to the public! Click the link at the top of the page that says “SHOP” and it will take you to the online store where you can browse through the available miniatures. This is the first time the shop has opened so please let me know if there are any issues you run into while trying to check out or browse the items. I’ve tested as much as I could before setting it into the wild but it is always possible I missed something. So if there are any issues or questions at all please send an email to email@example.com and I’ll follow up asap.
Tee Shirts and Hoodies!!
I am a huge fan of cool Tee Shirts and always looking for something new and different. So I think it is only a natural progression to make my own shirts now that I have my own company. These will not all be directly related to Slumbering Oblivion but will likely all be Cthulhu related. In the past the issue with having shirts was the startup costs, buying inventory, making sure you have all the rights sizes, various styles, etc. etc. But now there are print on demand solutions available through online companies such as Tee Spring. I can upload designs and assign styles then they take care of the rest. So all my shirts will be sold through my Tee Spring store and not the store on this site. So if you would like a shirt just click on the following link:
Eventually there will be many designs available but I am starting off with three new designs.
Cthulhu World Destruction Tour : We all know that ‘when the stars are right’ Cthulhu will stride forth from R’lyeh and herald the end of our world. Okay, that sucks but it doesn’t mean you can’t dress for the occasion. I mean if you’re going to be a curled up fetal ball of madness you might as well be wearing a cool tee shirt to help soak up all that drool! This is a double sided shirt. The front showing Cthulhu and minions as drawn by Danny Cruz and the back lists out some of the cities they will visit on their tour. It was designed to look like a metal band tour tee shirt. This one ties in to Slumbering Oblivion a little bit in that the date at the bottom is the year in the game that R’lyeh rose from the depths, 2088. This is one of my favorites as it ties in Cthulhu and Heavy Metal and just looks awesome!
Cthulhu Head and Quotes: Sometimes a simple Tee is all you need. This one sports Cthulhu in all his tentacled goodness along with a couple of related quotes. On the top right it says:
That is not dead which can eternal lie,and with strange aeons even death may die.
And on the bottom left is the classic phrase:
Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu.
