The Innsmouth Look: 77590, Father Dagon (pic-heavy)

Recommended Posts

Wow, I really like the iridescent look you achieved on his skin, and the squiggly pink chin tentacles are wonderfully icky.

I love the colors running all along Dagon. This is a colossal mini and I am tackling it soon to build my underwater mob repertoire. I will defs be referring to this. I really like the iridescent-Mardi-gras-king-cake-colors. So. Cool.

 

You went next next level on this guy!!!

Thank you! He's almost entirely painted in craftstore metallics: Dark Patina, Festive Green, Teal, and Amethyst, with touches of Reaper Alien Goo and others here and there. Deciding on a look for those barbels was challenging, but anytime there's a monster with a strong nonhuman look, slick pale vulnerable flesh ups the ick factor a lot.

Thanks! Had fun with it, and it really ties the Deep One/Tiik/Kuo-Toas together. Patterns and colors were inspired by Doug Jones' fishmen from "Hellboy" and "Shape of Water."

      I'd have posted this earlier with my other Innsmouth Folk and Deep Ones, but  this fishy lady is just incredibly topless.

      Can't be easy to wear a shirt with that dorsal fin, though.

      This is a fantastic sculpt, somewhere between advanced-stage land-dwelling Innsmouth folk and full Deep Ones/ Hordes Bog Trogs. She looks very Harryhausen, for some reason, maybe the gill frills, maybe the plates. Anyway, enjoy!

      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.

      These two Innsmouthers are delightful. The thing about Bonnie is that she is grotesque and slatternly, but doesn't have any *sculpted* bits that definitely scream "dead." So why not have her be degenerating into a fish-person, with those bulging eyes and gill-fold jowls, and that hunch that will start growing a dorsal fin soon? 

      The Mutant is from a 3-pack of Studio Metals apparently made for Deadlands: Hell on Earth Reloaded. It's a great set; comes with three identical hunched and agonized mutants and three mutant arms. (the other two are a mantis claw and a veiny polydactyl hulk paw. You'll be seeing them around, don't worry). 


      "Oh, once I fell for an Innsmouth gal / She meant the world to me / My one complaint was her fishy taint / That drove her back to the sea." --Massachussetts regional sea chantey; most of the other lyrics are unprintable. 



      And here's a group shot, with and without flash:

      Some more fine citizens of Innsmouth! These are from Black Cat's line of Deep One Hybrids. Casting quality is sometimes an issue with Black Cat, but in the case of these horrible chums, that's more of a feature than a bug. 

      Here's a couple more employees of the fish-packing plant: 


      And some of the local fishermen/fishmen. 


      BONUS! For a Call of Cthulhu game, I made a business card:

      A few citizens of Innsmouth town, out on the docks. Forgive the uneven lighting; I was shielding the flash with my hand. These fellows are from Rattrap Miniatures and hoo boy are they great sculpts. I especially like the way the dorsal fins are growing in on a couple of them.

      Here's Fishy Pete. "I yam what I yam," says he, and what he is is a blasphemous mingling of fish, amphibian, and mammal. He's strong to the finish because the blood of Father DAGON runs in his veins. 



      Jimmy and Morgan work at the Innsmouth Fish Packing plant. Morgan's still a little sensitive about The Change. 






      And Pretty Sally, the town beauty back about ten years ago. "Don't ever fall for an Innsmouth gal / they're charming as can be / but you'll find it strange when they start to change / And they'll drag you down to the sea," as the chantey goes.
