Somewhat generic mini, but the "vagina dentata" adds a bizarro factor that adds a point or two for sure.

Terrible. My least favorite sculpts in the entire project are the Deep Ones. Stilted, awkward posing and a weird, armor-plated look reminiscent of sci fi xenomorphs. I don’t mind innovating on the appearance of Mythos creatures, but this doesn’t even look aquatic!

The monster minis in this game have generally been a big disappointment for me.
I think these are about the worst though.

I like the mini itself, but not as a deep one depiction.

This quite much sums up my thoughts as well. Mini is detailed, but concept does not feel that this is from a Cthulhu game. Overall there's some great looking monsters, so if few of them aren't to my liking that's not too bad.

I do like that they try innovate. This time "deep one" didn't meet the expectations of mine.

That and his back, looks like he's wearing leather pants.

I would prefer a kind of a tail there.

He's too much humanoid...

It's just the pose that ruins it for me.

I like 'em. Kind of a more monstrous The Shape of Water fishman.

"Or subtracts 3."

^^^ THIS ^^^

I have a collection of 160 painted 28mm deep ones by at least 15 different manufacturers.

These DMD sculpts will not be painted to join them.

Reminds me of a cross between Shape of Water fishman and the Zombicide Invader aliens.

Only real issue is the awkward pose for me.

Looks stupid. Like as if it comes from an Alien parody movie, in which they call an alien stripper, with all those rivers and the left extended hand holding the pole and those pronounced butt cheeks... The head is stupid too. It's too human as well. I don't like it at all. It's dumb.
