After months of inactivity, the Prehistoriczoo15 returns with a new exhibit. Khurasan Miniatures' 15mm Deep Ones

Though not strictly prehistoric, I included them because the Mythos is timeless.

Well, they could be prehistoric. Far as I know, the true Deep Ones are immortal.

And their boss, the Big Tentacled Guy, certainly predates any human history.

Oh, and they look lovely, by the way.

J Womack 94,

Thanks for the kind words. I was thinking the same thing. HPL frequently mentions the great antiquity of the Great Old Ones. Time travellers or voyagers to lost worlds or the center of the earth seem likely to run into Deep Ones.

very cool

Clever basing.

This is one of those occasions where I want these in 28mm.

These are great! They'd work as a "weird" element in the alternative Vietnam game Tour of Darkness. And I'll also add my compliment toward your imaginative basing, JWomack! thumbs up

Barks1, I bought some 28mm Deep Ones from a British company several years ago. I liked them, but I can't immediately remember the company's name. I'll try, though.

My wife taught me a Filipino legend about creatures like the Deep Ones. They are called "Siyokoy".

Saginaw, was it Black Cat Bases? They produce pretty cool, froggy Deep Ones :)

Producer William Alland was attending a dinner party during the filming of Orson Welles' Citizen Kane (in which Alland played the reporter Thompson) in 1941 when Mexican cinematographer Gabriel Figueroa told him about the myth of a race of half-fish, half-human creatures in the Amazon river. Figueroa spoke of a friend of his who disappeared in the Amazon while filming a documentary on a rumored population of fish people. Alland then wrote story notes entitled "The Sea Monster" ten years later.
