Miniature Madness - Sideline Figures

Hi All,

I haven't been on here much recently as real life has got in the way a bit, however one of the things I'm working on at the moment has lead to me taking some pictures of some of the figures in my collection so I thought you might like to see them.  I'm splitting them down in to groups rather than one massive post and the first of these groups is sideline figures. So without further ado..............

A Cheerleader

Give me a B!
This High Elf Cheerleader was painted for my Wembelfy Stadium Dugout for my Insel Elfen team.  She is used as the reroll marker and no doubt helped persuade the panel who voted it Best Dugout at Dungeonbowl 2010!

An Apothecary
Was that three beetles or four?
This young apprentice apothecary is busy mixing up some sort of poultice; Wing of Bat, Eye of Newt, Testicles of Dog and a splash of Donkey Urine just how Griff Oberwald likes it!

Halfling Chef
Get yer 'ot dogs 'ere!
This is Jan Moleby, Halfling Master Chef to Littlepool Foodbowl Club who did the seemingly impossible and became Minden Blood Bowl League Champions in 2004!  He was a fun conversion and has often proved effective when tempting the opposition with a bowl of scouse!

Apothecary, Bloodweiser Babe or Cheerleader
You might just feel a little prick...

You may remember Axt showed his manic chainsaw wiedling gobbo that he made for Figure Exchange on this blog and this lady of the lamp was the figure I sent off to my chosen swap buddy.  I figured she could be used as either a Cheerleader, Bloodweiser Babe or Apothecary by the recipient; either way her presence in the dugout should help team morale but might well prove distracting!

Referee
Oi you! I saw that and I don't remember getting bribed yet!
 The classic referee figure, an essential in the old LRB for depicting where the refs focus was under the IGMEOY rule.  He doesn't look very happy but he has a firm grip on his 'persuader' hidden behind his back so he might see that foul by the Black Orc Blocker but on the other hand........

Wizard
Goodness Gracious Great Balls of Fire
 This fellow is one from my AD&D days but he has recently discovered a love of Blood Bowl!  More particularly he has discovered that he can be well paid for casting a single spell and indeed he will be well paid even if he doesn't decide to cast the spell, after all who is going to ask for their money back from a bloke who can hit you with a lightning bolt?

That's all for this post, hope you like them, I'll post the next installment in a couple of days.

Nice bunch Neil, congrats!

Love the halfling conversion. Some time ago, I've converted one myself, but somehow I got 'blocked' half way of the painting stage.
This post of yours might as well be what I needed to get my brushes to work on the little fella again.
Thank you!
:D

Very cool - I think sideline figures add a lot to the atmosphere of a game
