Apothecary
About this creation
Medieval chemist / physician

From wiki-
"Apothecary (IPA: /əˈpɒθɪkəri/ or uh-POTH-ih-kerry) is a historical name for a medical practitioner who formulates and dispenses materia medica to physicians, surgeons and patients — a role now served by a pharmacist.

In addition to pharmacy the apothecary also offered general medical advice and a range of services that are now performed solely by other specialist practitioners, such as surgery and midwifery. Apothecaries often operated through a retail shop, which in addition to ingredients for medicines, would also sell tobacco and patent medicines.

In its investigation of herbal and chemical ingredients, the work of the apothecary may be regarded as a precursor of the modern sciences of chemistry and pharmacology, prior to the formulation of the scientific method."












Ok so I have got the occasional comment regarding my lack of discriptions, so here we go.











Firstly I don't really think discriptions are essential, I really hope that my creations speak for themselves, that you can tell what everything is supposed to represent & the minifig action is easy enough to understand.











The fact is I have quite alot to say, but I doubt that many of you who visit my page really give a hoot.











So I am going to try to do Shannon & Keith proud by rambling about what ever takes my fancy. But I can garentee it is not going to be anywhere near as witty as their commentary.











In fact if you are indeed looking for a good read to go along with an awesome MOC you should probably head over to one of those guys' pages.











This is my 6th entry into the 5th annual Collosal Castle Contest. Last year I was lucky enough to win a catagory & get a couple of honourable mentions too.











Shortly after the contest I set a personal goal to do better this year. I think I have improved a great deal since "Buildenham," my first real project as a serious AFOL.











Hard to beleive that was completed in September 2006, not much more than a year has passed as I write this.











It's hard to give a critique of my progress without sounding bigheaded.











But the reality is I am a pretty small fish in a big pond.











Both my skill & collection have a very long way to go before I can truly "build what I want."











My choice of theme isn't the most popular either.











I often think I'd do so much better if I somehow made more space, & seriously big space at that.











But everyone builds space don't they? Unless of course you create your own theme, & how hard is that?












I declare everything I built in red & black to now be theme X. That was easy ... but it's still space isn't it?











Maybe if I put a fluro orange spider in them to battle the space frogs?











Nah castle is way more fun. It's limitations are chalenging & it's always fun breaking the rules.











As long as you don't break them too much. & the best thing about LEGO is the minifigs and their many adventures, & that can happen in any theme can't it?











All you need is one expressive minifig head & the possibilities are endless really.






















So this is an Apothecary. Bit of a mouthful that word.











Basically the idea is the guys is a medieval chemist & physician. He has a very nice house, but doctors are rich, and there are fewer doctors in the middle ages so you can imagine he's that much richer.











Well it's been a blast, I hope you feel you have got your money worth by reading my ramble and stumbling through my typos.











I have to wonder how many people made it this far. But the truth is I really appreciate you taking a look through my photos.











Thanks to everyone, especially those who take the time to vote or god forbid leave a comment.











Cheers!

So, let me get this straight. I can get both smokes and vicodin from this guy at the same time? One stop shopping convenience at it's finest! Now then, no you're stuff does NOT need the commentary. It stands on it's own quite well. Now, hacks like me on the other hand NEED the commentary to rise above and get noticed. Like I said, you don't need it. ~ Chris.

Lol this is great. I especially like the tower and the telescope. And I agree with you when it comes to castle. Though I do build alot of space you can never really beat a huge castle for plain epicness. Unless your names Dan Jassim and you have a hecuv alot more bricks than i do!

I have to admit, I die a little bit inside each time I view your castle mocs. It makes me wish I had devoted my years of collecting towards this theme instead of space. Another great one. All the pipes, clear tubes, and bottles remind me of college.

"You're killin' me Smalls!!!" If you keep posting great castle MOC's like this I may loose all control and be inspired to try a castle-themed MOC of my own (God help my bank account...although Bricklink will be thankin' ya!) A fine addition to the "portfolio" with the usual flare for fun details.

It's always interesting to get a glimpse of a builders personality via their commentary, and the adventures during the design and construction process are often as interesting as the MOC itself. I don't know why castle isn't more popular; creations like yours give it such emotion, thoughtfulness and beauty. Maybe people just like mechs with BIG GUNS? Maybe the poor quality of the official Lego castle sets now is to blame? Anyway, I'm rambling. A beautiful work, to be sure. I love the white and brown on the house. And the tower (with the telescope!) is to die for!
