Saurian Safari Steam Machine
I've also got round to putting together the Ironclad Miniatures steam tank that I bought at Warfare about four or five years ago, for use as a Victorian dinosaur hunting contraption in Saurian Safari. I have already devised a set of rules for steam machines and will be trying them out on Tuesday, assuming the rapid demise of the pirates in the first half and the need to provide a bit of 'conventional' dino bagging thereafter.
As turret mounted machine guns are unsporting, to say the least, I replaced the turret with a cupola using the top of the boiler supplied in the kit and a brass drawing pin as a hatch. I also had to sand off a couple of the front port holes as they'd been damaged in storage and I couldn't be bothered to fix them. I'm hoping to undercoat, paint and base the thing tomorrow.
