Now for something completely different.
Every now and again the "Nerd Centre" as the kids call it needs a clear out and re-organising, in one of the various storage boxes I stumbled across these a long forgotten project to recreate some of H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu Universe in miniature, it never got off the ground but these and some fishmen got thrown in a box based and undercoated never to grace the battlefield.
Not really sure when they will appear on the table.
But the pulp project is getting ever closer.
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."
