View Full Version : June Entry: Steam Drawn Barracks.

06-08-2009, 05:58 PM
A track laying train-like vehicle consisting of engine, 6 barracks, armory, gun decks. The whole thing'll be 2 decks high.

Royal Experimental Deserters Regiment, 2nd Battalion:

Formed from penal units and prison camps around the country the Royal Experimental Deserters Regiment tests all new equipment for safety, battle worthiness, efficiency and comfort. The 2nd Battalion's most recent tests involved the unsuccessful mule drawn cavalry carrier, the spectacularly unsuccessful chariot cannon (turns out the cart really should have been before the horse), and the confoundingly successful two-way musket.

The Track-laying, Barracks, Hollandale-Ewing (TBHE):

Using the latest in steam engine technology we hope to harness the power of industry to get our boys to the front in both comfort and style. Consisting of six cars each holding an entire infantry company in the upper deck the entire contraption is nearly 200 yards long. With gun decks in both the third and sixth car the TBHE can hold up to twelve 6lb cannons with ease.

Begining work on the engineering section.

Now this looks pretty interesting...and a style that I haven't seen in quite a while.

Since my computer no longer turns on everything is on hold until I get it working again :(

I was wondering why no updates on your map, I really look forward to seeing your progress. I hope you get your computer fixed fast. I want to see more!

OK! New power supply and an update.

I finished the engine section and the basic barracks car. Left to do: Gun decks, armory/logistics, maybe a brig.

Nope, I'm using Illustrator 10.

Fleshed out and labled the gun deck

EDIT: This is done, unless I get any sudden inspirations.
