Steampunk(ish) Airship

Postby ikensall » Mon Dec 20, 2010 8:56 am

Okay guys before we start lets get something clear.
Just because i put steampunk(ish) in the title it doesn't mean that the content is going to be truly steampunk it's just a loose theme, incase your'e wondering then i set this stuff around the time of an alternate history WWI.

Right then...


So I made this in about two evenings (hence the slightly messy look)
Image
Here you can see the starboard side, the yellow thinngs are gas tanks to fill up the gas bags. The red things you can see through the middle window are a plungerbox and some time bombs. I'll explain moore later.

Image
Here you can see the front SNOT section with grille in the top.
Above this you can see a steam-powered-rocket-chainsaw (I haven't forgotten)

Image
Here's a spacky pic of the underside cannon. The ship has three of them, one mounted on the underside as seen here and two forward mounted ones on either side.

Image
Now for more spacky pictures. This one shows the lower section of the airship. The cargo hold contains :
Two chests of TNT,
Two chests of money,
A plungerbox and time bomb (as mentioned before),
Two MKII missiles (the trans blue things),
Two heavy weapons (top center),
A medik bacvkpack with axe and bandagee inside,
A large barrel full of revolvers and pickaxes.
Now for the ship's main gun(s)...

Image
The main gun turret is housed in the rear, making this ship very hard to chase after without getting blown to bits.
Underneath the main cannon there are two heavy machine-anti-aircraft guns. Those big barrels on the top are used for general storage of water, coal or anything seen as useful.

Image
Here we can see the ships wheel. In the two gun nests to the sides of the ship there is a light machine gun (port side) for fighters and a incenduary
cannon (starboard) for slower aircraft.
There is also another type of faster firing cannon behind the wheel section.

Image
This shot just shows how the airship is taken apart for ease of play.
There is also a bomb on the starboard side of the airship 9with a yellow warhead.

Thats all for now. I also have a plane to post .

PS. Battle for fort legoredo will be back in january.

I see a lot of guns attached to a ship. Good.

I would add either more air bags or a much larger air bag.

Other then that, I like it quite a bit.

Yeah thanks for the approval guys. When my friend saw it (he doesn't play brikwars) he looked really surprised at the amount of gas bags. I would add more gasbags but I only have about one and a half of them from my adventurers sets. :/ Besides I guess if I added another gas bag it would be a bit cramped and hard to reach into without breaking apart.
Otherwise I'm glad/surprised you liked it.

Is it a bad thing that I want to board and commandeer this airship? Excellent job.

Sorry 'bout that Silva, I have 6 guys on it as the normal crew, I was just using them for something else when i started photograping this. I'll put up a pic of them on the ship when I can get some more damn camera batteries.
Didn't think you could take it that easily now did you. :wink:

EDIT: I can see the potential for numerous :twss: jokes here.

I know, I know....

But the best thing to put on an airship with alot of guns, is to put more guns on it.

If you had enough slopes, you could possibly make the air bag like this:

<a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/js9productions/4899067082/" title="Luftwaffe LZ-229 Assault Carrier - main view by Justsuper9, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4118/4899067082_a1b6da01c2.jpg" width="500" height="375" alt="Luftwaffe LZ-229 Assault Carrier - main view"></a>

Or like the airship here:

<a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/crazy_texan/5228480070/" title="On White by John Moffatt, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5208/5228480070_c7422795db.jpg" width="500" height="333" alt="On White"></a>
