Was there anything ever other than this?

    I don't think there's even that much, where is that from?

    There were a few throwaway references in warhammer lore to underwater races occupying unknown regions on the map, it sort of went from there and became the rallying cry of warhammer conspiracy theorists, that the next big race for fantasy would be fish people.

    Yeah... not even a conspiracy theory... more like a Joke that vaguely insinuates there's a conspiracy, Horrors of Innsmouth style.

    Fishmen are a wonderfully amazing idea that is entirely possible and should be highly encouraged to get the cathay treatment.

    Just as long as they don't screw it up as bad as GW did with that faction in AoS. Not everything needs an elf.

    Dirty stinky elves.

    Only good elf is a dead one.

    Except Drukhari. Cenobites+Pirates of Dark Water = perfection.

    There are a few group of aquatic people

    - Chupayotol (Blessed Dread start) has an underwater city near where Lokhir got his mask, it is unclear on whether it's a LM/Old One city that sank (Atlantis style) or if it was built underwater by the monster that lived there, same for the Mask
    - Lakemen: Lake and river Beastmen, look like frogs, don't get along with the Beastmen
    - Triton: Giant of the Seas, look like the Greek Myth's Triton
    - Merfolk/Mermaid
    - Menfish: Small villages who raids the coast, could be Beastmen (1 example in a Beastmen group)

    But most are either footnote, part of old cannon (Warhammer 1st edition), minor races or non fighting forces

    They featured in the Warhammer Compendium (1984) and had a write up in Warhammer 1st Ed. Also may have featured in the odd story.

    Tastes like fish, talks like people.

    They exist. Nobody ever sees them. They maybe live under Naggaroth. The end.

    Thought they (The Deep Ones) had a very sizable reference in the Monstrous Arcanum. Loremaster of Sotek had a video where he read it verbatim.
