A Blood Bowl Apothecary


I do love this time of year, simply because I can indulge in so many wonderfully obscure miniatures under the banner of 'Dinovember'!  So with this post, I'm pleased to reveal my latest edition to  the 'South Coast Saurus' bench - the surgeon!    I soon discovered, that Blood Bowl is a bruising game and what better way to give the team the chance to run off those niggling sprains than with their very own Apothecary. 


Once again from 'Comixininos' and again a little assembly was required with the tail and saw arm needing to be attached.  He has this wonderfully maniacal look to him and I couldn't resist giving him heavy duty rubber gloves and a rusty old saw to instil confidence in the rest of the team!  A little smaller in stature than the Bloodweiser Babe, but none the less enjoyable to paint - now to find a miniature to represent Coach Awdry!

  1. Cold Bloods to the fore! (and not just of the alcoholic variety).

    Love the rusty effect you've painted to the saw. I've a miniature that I can (somewhat) link to Dinovember, so I'll give it a shot :)

  3. Lovely work Michael!
    Every Blood Bowl team needs a sawbones to keep their star players performing week after week. He fits the bill beautifully.

  4. That's some entourage you're collecting – kind of need to play BB again.

    1. Absolutely Tamsin, but judging how they performed on their last outing he's going to be kept busy!

  8. I love him! Just look at that blood spattered apron and that saw. He is smaller than the Bloodweiser Babes and that with less room for your brush, a bit harder to paint detail.. Very much looking forward to seeing what Coach Awdry looks like.

    I finished my first Dino last night and I'm working on his base tonight. There's nothing special about him, just a standard Dino with a basic palette. But as it's my first I'm fairly excited about it.

  10. Great character figure. With a little grog to ease the patient's pain, the Doctor can now work his mayhem of mangling and madness.

    1. Thank you Jay, I think he looks like a chap who enjoys his work a little too much.

  11. Cute figure! As an 'Apothecary' myself I'd be so tempted to use that saw myself sometimes! ;-) I suppose at least when treating reptilian patients there's a reasonabe chance the removed part may grow back!

    1. Thank you Robert, the coach is proving to be a tad difficult to finish so I might leave it for a while and come back to it later in the month.

  16. Wonderful! I never know what I'll find when I click in, but I'm always awed. This is an inspired conversion and painting!

    Any game with figures this good must be a blast to play.
