Painted up a number of sailors and fishpeople, as many of you know--but I'm always looking to expand the diversity of my human crew and the grotesquerie of my Innsmouth cadre.
So here are Tyrell and Yarmouth, out on a crab-fishing trip. Both are from Crooked Dice.
More angles on our anglers here.
The folk from Innsmouth town know where the fishing is good!
There's some as say they can call the biggest catches to their boats!
Subduing the catch though--that's a different matter. Fortunately, Yarmouth is a burly customer.
Break out the butter sauce, lads! Tyrell definitely looks weirded out, and correctly so, but there's going to be time enough to worry about horrible cult secrets after the crab-steaming. And if weird eldritch stuff starts going down, anything that can crack that shell is a good weapon to have at hand.
Fishfolk Fisherman and Fishfolk Fishwife from Crooked Dice. The fisherman, in oilskins and sou'wester, is a perfect blend of the Gorton's mascot and his product. The bug-eyed fishwife with cleaver was a delight to paint, especially the Atlantic salmon.

The Real Housewives of Innsmouth (including a repurposed Bonnie, 50293, with improvements upon her previous appearance):
and one of just the fellas:
Golly gee willikers I love painting fishmen. Special credit also to the Dreadmere Fishing Boat, 44032, the perfect touch for the setting.
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.
Links to the individual images,
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.
