The idea of a steam powered airship is old hat but I figured my dwarves would enjoy one!
The ship is made from cut foam with Milliput over the top, and took alot less time than I was expecting.
I armed the ship with a light cannon, although i think if it ever fired the craft would fall appart.

For my Dwarf army I needed something a bit different so went for a Dwarf steam tank. The tank is made from Milliput over a styrophome shape.
As I was planning the design I went into some back story and this will be explained later, but in essence it is an Ironclad type machine, with gun ports for a cannon and a Petard on a Spar (for clearing rocks!)
As a model its quite fun, as a weapon its a pain to use but I am still working on it.

The conversion was done by cutting the end of the gun off, placing a tiny rod for the barrel and adding wire on the underside for strength and to act as a ramrod, then placed the severed barrel on the end.
The finished model looks quite fine, and will give my Dwarf army some much needed firepower
