Hi Everyone,

This summer I have been sculpting and casting some 25mm Deep Ones for a proposed Cthulhu HOTT army. I'm really pleased at the way they turned out. These sculpts were a bit more ambitious in terms of poses and I found that pre-inserting vents into the moulds worked wonders. Here are the finished Frog-boys. I hope you all like them.

I now need to paint them. Also I wonder whether to weaponise all of my hordes or to leave some hands free. I can see Deep Ones creeping up and strangling things.

All comments and crits welcome.

I like them!

Wow very good. That sets rather a high bar for the What I Did This Week category.

I think that you should leave some with hands free, possibly with weapons slung. They will do some sneaking and strangling and stuff and will need both hands free for that.

I like them too! Nice work.

When I played CoC, my PC's weapons did not seem very effective against the monsters! My GM laughed and said, "I'll give you a Tommy Gun if you like… It won't help." {GULP!}

I say leave them weaponless -- it is actually more terrifying that they don't need weapons to be deadly. They bring back creepy memories of playing the game some 20 years ago… {Shudder!}

They look great. Excellent job on the molds! They look like commercial products I would buy. Thanks for sharing! Cheers!

I'd take a Tommy Gun against a Deep One anytime!
@Kropotkin303,
Great work!

Splendid work, it is always good to see some home casts. Dagon will be most pleased with his new servants.

Cheers

Thank you guys for the feedback. Always great to hear people's ideas. I think I will only weaponise a few of the Deep Ones and have the rest open handed. Looking forward to painting them now.

Perhaps I should give them Tommy Guns. Oh the horror!

"Nooo!!!…" Suddenly, Fred, a very gregarious, and vocal sort of jolly fellow, went silent. What could have happened to good 'ol Fred?

LOL!
