As you say there are no plugins for
If you wanted to write one you have to create a system plugin and a login component.

I know quite a bit of time has elapsed, but I hope I can provide a helpful contribution to anyone else looking for the same solution.

This adds another level of security by requiring a key provided by a google app from a smartphone. I know this isn't a captcha facility, but it might be a better solution to protect the Joomla backend.
Hope that helps.
