Hey all.  I'm working on a steampunk novel and have come to this question, how exactly would a Georgian era naval battle work if one side was airborne?  And I thought it would make a fun exercise for…Continue

Wolsung - Steampunk tabletop game

Some of you guys might find this interesting.  Micro Art Studios procedude a tabletop wargame in a steampunk world called Wolsung.  I play a fair amount of games, and this is one of the more fun, easier to understand rulesets, and the models are full of character:http://www.wolsung-ssg.com/They're also running a kickstarter at the moment to expand the range, which is a cheap way in for anyone who doesn't have the gaming staples at hand to play:…See More

"Well, if you're talking about the real world, an airship might make a somewhat effective bombing platform, though to do so from a safe range would mean extreme inaccuracy. The nice thing about bombs is that they can be almost all payload…"

"You're most welcome. The vibe is the game is awesome and, more importantly for me at least, the setting and atmosphere are spot on.  It's just a shame I don't have time to play it right now :("

"Airships are large targets and rather fragile. This has two implications. First, they cannot carry heavy ordinance themselves. The recoil would tear the airframe to pieces. Second, they would easily be damaged by enemy fire. One might assume that…"

Airship versus sail ship combat - how would it work?

Hey all.  I'm working on a steampunk novel and have come to this question, how exactly would a Georgian era naval battle work if one side was airborne?  And I thought it would make a fun exercise for people to flex their minds as well as ease my research ;)In your opinions how would it play out?  What factors would effect both sides?  What would be the likely outcome?  Obviously a lot of this depends on many variables, but let's just leave the absolutes out for now.The way I'm seeing it, the…See More

Question, Queries and Posers

It has been suggested that I should sell my hats. The problem is that I have absolutely no idea what to charge for them. The hats themselves are costume hats and the embellishments on them I had either made or purchased at retail. So my questions are, hypothetically speaking, if you were in the market for a hat such as these, how much would you be willing to pay for them? Basically, based off of what I do, what would you all consider to be fair market value for them?Help!See More

I have just added a post to my blog at Net Advance Retro which might be of interest to some of you. It concerns the work of the Victorian artist/engineer J. Nasmyth, who used plaster models to make astonishingly life-like photographs of landscapes on the moon.See More
