Steam Cannon Man

Another day another Empire of the Dead Requiem model.  This time it is the Steam Cannon man - a handy addition to any faction.  The steam cannon can pack quite a punch - but has a tendency to be a little unreliable at times, and to build up a scary amount of pressure if it goes unused.

The cannon operator has a little of the freezing worker look to him:

Lots of detail on these models which I am enjoying

Has a strange bottom bit to the tank on the back

... looks like he should wag it like a tail

I must say I do enjoy the contraptions that come with steampunk

 Next up is the perambulator boots fellow - I am working through the gadgets that I got before turning to the characters.  As you will see, the aim is to get a new figure painted every two days.

  1. Very nice. Looks likes some sort of early Ghostbuster! There must be lots of posiblities for conversions and scratch-building with this genre.

    1. I like the ghost buster reference. Very apt indeed. Many options for conversions etc, I just don't have the skills to do them!

  2. Another excellent figure! I see what you mean about the 'tail' - maybe its some kind of emergency pressure release outlet, or where you connect the hosepipe to refill with fresh water?

    1. Fresh holy water I believe. Pretty scary for Werewolf's and vampires I imagine! Nice figure Dan, looks very cool.

    2. Thanks guys, I like the idea that it is the refill contraption - having a pressure release right there might burn a hole in his pants!
