So how should they look ? Visible fins and gills ? Should they have human legs ? Shorter than a human [average height 17.5mm] or larger ? Armed with blade weapons or looking menacing with just the 'claws' ? Looking forward to any and all your ideas team ;)

my preference: a little bigger than a person by a milimeter or so. visible gills. large forward facing eyes. long arms ending in webbed hands with long claws. Fully transformed deep ones can't use firearms. Clubs or bladed weapons possible, but many without. Legs will be more frog-like than humanoid-the deep ones are described as hopping, leaping by HPL. A wide fish-mouth full of teeth. Smooth chest and belly but back is scaled. A long low fin or row of spines extend from the head down the back. The old Grenadier models were a nice version of the Deep Ones in larger scale. My version above is how I imagined them when reading 'Shadows Over Innsmouth"

A pack of people going through the metamorphosis would be cool also.

Don't limit yourself to just one species…give possibility to multiple solutions to shallow water adaptation.

Smokey Roan22 Dec 2009 7:50 a.m. PST

Yep, Ogden. I use different makes (RAFM Deep Ones being the majority) Even some heroscape "Humonguos" figures I repainted.

BTW those Brigade Deep Ones human form are GOAT! THERE's youir metamorphisis!

Check 'em out

Pendaken do some nice ones, supposedly 10mm but I use them for 15.

Nice ankle biters for 28mm. Unusual range of weaponry as well.

Nice pics CC. That's what I like, fish-frog hybrids as described by HPL. I don't like the tentacled type like those in the film "Dagon"

Smokey Roan22 Dec 2009 5:35 p.m. PST

I LOVE the tentacled type in Dagon. (That tenacled girl with the boobies, at least. I'd hit that)

Go here:


The smaller figures make nice orcs/goblins/sagoths/whatever in 15mm.

The bigger ones make nice aquatic horrors, though they will be pretty big in 15mm. Still, IIRC, some Deep Ones could grow to enormous size.

In all, you get 50 figures for 2 bucks. That, you can't beat! Good gaming!

Top Gun Ace22 Dec 2009 7:53 p.m. PST

Sure, fins and gills, and frog-like legs.

Larger than a human, so they are more threatening.

Like the ones in the movie Sea Beast/Troglodyte (as someone pointed out about the latter, Froglodyte would have been a more appropriate name).

See here for more info:

We have a 28mm green ready that will be used in our World Wide Water rules as a boss or heavy 'squad' ;) support:





There will also be a sprue or two of 5 separate heads to ease converting typical 15mm miniatures [an aquatic human head sprue and a squid head sprue].

Wonder if they would do for my sea monster vs. 1/4800 ships?

Hrothgar's description sounds good.

Be sure to make one of those sculpts bear a close resemblance to Fred Sanford. Aunt Esther, after all, swore that he was "a fish eyed fool."

Sherlockgeek29 Jun 2021 10:25 a.m. PST

Rebelminis does 15mm

Wow the number of locked memberships!

Salad Man06 Jul 2021 1:35 p.m. PST

Exactly, dapeyers! At least that damned Roan character has run oft to Leasd Adventure. Last thing we need is the likes of him here!

dapeters09 Jul 2021 1:51 p.m. PST

Which one?

jamemurp22 Jul 2021 11:43 a.m. PST

Did y'all notice you are replying to a post from 2009?

That's some Ephraim Waite level necromancy.

dapeters23 Jul 2021 8:54 a.m. PST
