Times Reports Launch of a New German Skyship
Extra Crispy
15th Jun 2015 06:51:05

The Times reports today that the German shave launched a new Skyship, of a new, previously unknown, class. Whitehall are reportedly analyzing the stereoscopic images made available. Our own experts conclude it features a number of unusual features. First, it is unclear what sort of armament the forward turret features. Second, the two smaller turrets do not appear to contain guns. Speculation centers on their being sally ports for boarding defense, or possibly damage control. Third the complex mast carries no sail, it is unknown what purpose this serves. Finally, the ship features the well known German steering fans instead of more typical control services.

1/300 Scratch build. Very simple, limited detail just for play test purposes. If I like the game I'm working out, I'll go back and make more complex, detailed models.

Lovely model - shows what a bit of ingenuity and a colour printer can do for a man!

Crude but effective. I've got some of your WW1 figs on my desk to act as boarding parties...
