I have a few WIPs that are taking forever, but I needed an alternate Kuo Toa faction for D&D tonight, so I went for it and “speed painted” these in about 4 hours.
I used both BCA Pink *and* Drow Nipple Pink as the main skin and spine colors! Do I get bonus points for that?
Here are the ones I did a few months before that took about 4 times longer over several weekends.

Deep One Priest painted by me and the Warrior painted by my husband who's just getting into painting.
So I had lost the mojo to paint for a while but watching this last KS got me inspired to get back to it. Also, the hubby is running a new D & D group so I've been asking him what he needs for sessions and just doing some speed painting on things. It's been a nice way to get back into it without overthinking it.
That being said, this is the first one that I really spent some time on in a long time and I dig the way it turned out. It's kind of sappy but my husband is also coming to enjoy painting so he painted the warrior first and I matched the main color scheme when I had the time to work on the priest. It's been really fun to paint with him as he's learning the basics.
The basic colors for both of them were the Brilliant Green triad. The belly is Highland moss over the darker green. I focused on glazing and trying to blend the light and shadow together so it wasn't as blotchy. I should have made sure to straighten out the priest a bit more so pardon the quarters to prop him up for better photos. I'll have to work on a nice base to help angle him a bit.
Could be better but feels good to be painting again!
Can't make Deep One hybrids without Deep Ones; that just stands to reason. Got these fishy Bones fellas before the Bones Deep Ones came out. Probably overdid the metallics, and will probably do so again.
77215, Eregris Darkfathom I painted up first; did not notice it's a cultist in a fish suit; thought the face was part of the mouth. I do like the flowing robes and the coral scabbard.
77187, the Tiik Champion, is a delight. Huge and hunched-over, with a Dunkleosteus profile, truly a terrifying beast from an elder era.
77186, the Tiik Warrior, I'm pretty pleased with. 77212, the Baron, I should probably revisit and put some shiny razzamatazz on his fins one of these days.
There's one more fishy friend I need to post, but for reasons probably more aesthetic than biological, she is NSFW and will need to be linked.
A fitting adversary for the Benthic Walker and my aquanauts, this burly fishy brute packs a massive steampunky harpoon cannon and a cape made of human leather. (How aquatic species do their leather-tanning, I don't know, but it seems to work for this guy.)
He's also adorned with fishhooks, which must be a bold countercultural statement among fishmen. Like a necklace of bullets and syringes for a human, I guess.
Big fella, he came with a Large base but could pass for a very burly Medium creature in my opinion.
This brute is not some lungbreather hybrid from Innsmouth; this is 100% Deep One stuff.
Oh yes, also the rotten hands and bones on the gruesome cape. Trophies of the Ones that Got Away, perhaps?
