Lenska Palace

There is an interesting new venue in Forest City that is just becoming available for events.  The owner, Diana Lenska, is interested in making contact with the North Carolina Steampunk community.You can check out the webpage here.  The house was built in 1929 but the inside is gilded Victorian glory.  It's a very cool venue.  Take a look at it and see what you think.  I'm going to put the owner in touch with the NCSS and see what we…See More

Introduction
I am a costuming, paintball, and role-playing nut just getting into Steampunk. I reenacted the American Civil War for years and hope to build on that historical knowledge with my costuming talent.

Journal Entry- October 5th, 1891 (continued)

(Continued)

Pvt. Cantrell was at the head of the squad, and his door-kicking skills being what they are, the ornate white patio doors fell away from his heavy hobnailed boot like trees falling in a storm, the panes of wavy glass dropping from the frames as they fell like scattered leaves.

The resistance that we met when we got inside the house was nothing like we had anticipated.  There in the doorway stood two figures that resembled nothing so much as a pair of…

We got a chance to get a look at a little more of Cubana from the air today.  A rich planter to the East of Camp Alfred had declared his refusal to trade with Americans now that we’ve come, and it was the opinion of the Secretary of the Navy that we Marines might be useful in convincing the fellow to the contrary.  There was a small dirigible available to us (our heavy assault craft have all been sent to Florida for an overhaul… likely some of Captain Ciaran’s…

Two days’ furlough was our reward for clearing out that pirate’s nest. We took a ferry to French Martinique, and proceeded to reconquer in the name of the United States. As an NCO, I found this visit a bit less carefree than the last time I was here, but no less exciting, to be sure.

-

The first place that I went was a little bar called Le Petit. That’s the one thing that I don’t like about Martinique… all the French names. It’s hard for a man to sit down in a place… Continue

I looked up at that last entry… definitely not a waste of time! The next morning, yesterday, the 18th, we got up bright and early to keep watch. We were moored in a little cove in one of the islands here, just sitting on top of the water like a bunch of ants on a cork, bobbing as free as can be, when we heard an engine. We looked out to sea, and there was a small steamboat cutting through the waves about a quarter-mile away. We could tell that it wasn’t a merchant because… Continue

I think that might well be a good idea.

My first thought is to make the barrel significantly larger in diameter to leave room for the magnetic reactants. Also adding a hip mounted power pack with a cord or cable to represent the power draw the little monsters will have.

I think when I do my order I'll get a couple of $.99 sidearms as well. This Captain desires a trusty sidearm, just in case...

Yes, absolutely! I think it's great, we just have to try to avoid making it look Star Wars as it seems to have some roots with my favorite smuggler....

I got the ELwire from glowire.com.
The really nice thing is that it can run on a very small battery pack and can be switched to be on/steady or strobed. I set the switch to strobe which gave a really nice active effect .
The wire is really versatile and can be easily be tacked in place with hot melt glue or seven sewn into fabric (I saw a young lady at Dragoncon who had made up a Tron style costume with that)

Excellent ! My logic for the copper parts was that the gun would generate a lot of heat when fired, therefore some copper cladding / heat-pipes woulc make sense to help draw that away. I tried adding some actual heatsinks but it ended up looking terrible. Contemplating adding the rotary magazine from one of the Nerf shotguns with suitable modificatons to make it look like power pack / cooling unit .
PS there was a 45 cal version of the Mauser made by the Chinese of all people and it was apparently very successful

Many thanks for the kind comment - yes its a Nerf CS-6. I was amazed at how many comments I got about it at Dragoncon this year. I also added EL wire with a strobing effect around the barrel since the idea was that the gun had a gauss accellerator fitted.

I notice you have what looks like a Mauser C96 on one of your sketches. I just picked up full metal aisrosft version of one of thise on the basis that it was period -accurate and would be a very solid backup weapon in the event that the "high tech" stuff did not work. I cant help but feel that in a Steampunk world with a lot of unproven technology good old fashioned bullets would be a good backup !

The jodhpur crafting and the new journal entry are both great!
