"Oh, hush now, We've barely begun."
"Sometimes, we think that our work is not appreciated."
"Do you know just how much work we've done restoring your dulled nerve endings?"
"We don't do this for our benefit you know?"
"Well....perhaps we do enjoy our work, but one must be happy in their work, mustn't one?"
"Be still now, we wouldn't want to make a mistake at this stage."
"The first injection is the worst, but once you've recovered you'll be surprised just how much you crave more."
"You'll feel so much better when we've finished."
"Now this may sting a little!"
With Rob building and painting a rather cool Festus objective marker for our 'Search for Festus' campaign, I thought I better knock together a Fleshsmith to take care of our honoured guest. We wouldn't want him dying on us now would we?
A quick rummage through my bits boxes and I found the perfect parts for the Fleshsmith. The upper torso was an old Black Templar Cenobite model I had lying around. The backpack from an old Fabius Bile model was perfect for adding a few more tools to work on his unfortunate victims with.
A couple of old Rhino doors, made for an ideal operating table. Two old Ork dreadnought arms were used for the operating table support and the Fleshsmith's lower section connecting him to his tracked unit.
After Rob's quip about Festus on his rotisserie with chilli sauce and pitta bread, I think I'll call this Fleshsmith Stavros ;-)
Unfortunately for Tosis Mire, this Fleshsmith takes his responsibilities very seriously and will defend his patient with his life.
As well as being and a consummate Excoriator, Explicator and an excellent apothecary, the Fleshsmith is a formidable warrior in his own right.
The Fleshsmith has the following profile.
WS 4, BS -, S4, T5, W2, I4, A4, LD10, Save 3+
Fearless - The Fleshsmith is assumed to pass all morale checks and cannot be pinned.
Surgical Precision - The Fleshsmith's vast array of surgical blades, saws and drills are designed to operate on patients wearing the strongest of armour. As such all Close Combat attacks have the shred USR and are AP2.
I'm sure this will give Tosis Mire and his Death Guard something to think about as they search the corridors looking for their fallen Lord.
Until next time....may Our Lady grant you her number ;-)
