Cautions: The collection is sorted by mythos name, for any figure that resembles the true descriptions given by the Cthulhu mythos writers, regardless of the actual name of the sculpture. Manufacturers that are not savvy to the mythos may not know what figures they've bought and so rename them with best guess. Also, some figures, though made intentionally for the mythos, for legal reasons due to lack of licence, may have had to rename the figures. Where time permits, a descriptive quote may be provided for clarification of the author's intent and for sculptor inspiration. No figure will be admitted to a category that does not fit the author's description; for oddballs that don't fit, we include an Honorable Mentions category for those blasphemous horrors. Finally, a gallery to compare all those deep ones, side by side. Since this collection may exceed the page length limit, links will be provided for each category as they become overlarge. Also, the collection cannot be expected to be kept up to date, as it is not the main purpose of this wiki to indulge the viewer with these special galleries; hence, a proper search should ensue if your figure cannot be quickly identified from this gallery.

To find the identity of the figure: Simply click on the thumbnail, then, on the page with the pic, scroll down to see what links to that pic and follow the links.

Editors: Please observe the rules and requests at the top of the edit page.

Sculptors: Take note of the distinct lack of females and young and old! [Hint, hint!]

Collectors: Enjoy the eye candy!

Roleplayers: Roll for Sanity.

Deep Ones, a Lesser Servitor Race

Note: these are not octopoidal, despite their worship of Cthulhu.

"I think their predominant color was a greyish-green, though they had white bellies. They were mostly shiny and slippery, but the ridges of their backs were scaly. Their forms vaguely suggested the anthropoid, while their heads were the heads of fish, with prodigious bulging eyes that never closed. At the sides of their necks were palpitating gills, and their long paws were webbed. They hopped irregularly, sometimes on two legs and sometimes on four. I was somehow glad that they had no more than four limbs. Their croaking, baying voices, clearly used for articulate speech, held all the dark shades of expression which their staring faces lacked ... They were the blasphemous fish-frogs of the nameless design - living and horrible." ~ H.P. Lovecraft, The Shadow Over Innsmouth

Deep Ones: Lovecraftian Xurg

Note on Laserburn / WH40K Fishmen: Sometime in the mid-1980s Bryan Ansell had some Sci-Fi Fishmen made based on Citadel's Fiend Factory FF65 Man-Fish models. See CCM for pictures of the originals. These "Fishmen from Space" [2] were used to playtest Laserburn and then WH40K but were never sold to the public. Fast-forward to 2012 when Wargames Foundry discovered the moulds of these in their back-catalog and created a new production-mould [3][4]. These figures are sometimes available from Wargames Foundry directly or as giveaways at events.

Honorable Mentions

These figures aren't true to the Cthulhu Mythos writers' descriptors, but Lovecraft isn't rolling in his grave (or is he?).
