From BrianB - 15mm Deep Ones (6 Points)


I've been working on a collection of Mythos creatures in 15mm so when I came across these Deep Ones from Khurasan miniatures they were quickly added to the pile. These three were primed and ready to go at the start hopefully I'll get to the other seven later in the Challenge.



I kept the painting straightforward with a basic green with purple accents on the fins. I've always liked Khurasan's sculpts and these are good examples. Nice clean details that are easy and quick to paint and poses that are animated and full of life.





Three 15mm spawn of Dagon should net me 6 points.

From Curt:
Ah, it's great to see some Cthulhu stuff roll out for the Challenge. Wonderful work Brian. I didn't know that Khurasan did these in 15mm - very, very cool.  I particularly like the figure who is positioned forward on his (her?) right fist and I also think your choice of using purple tones on their dorsal ridge is a good one - it provides a great contrast to their green scaly bits. I look forward to seeing the other seven!

  1. they are beautiful! Maybe he should use gloss varnish on the bases to simulate the water?

  2. Khurasan make some lovely minis. You've done these justice sir, they are suitably slimy looking!

  9. They look great! Didn't even know these were available! I agree the purple is a nice contrast and some gloss would add to the slimey look!
    Seems pulp and LotR are vieing for theme du-jour!
