The Last Hurrah Project..Photo Heavy

Recommended Posts

After hanging around since the early '80s, my Goblin combo artillery piece is finally done> My sons enjoyed dry fitting the Beasty when they were boys...they are grown men now:

I remember this one when it was for sale and you have done a bang up job.  I picked up the orc catapult with the face on the front back then and that has since disappeared.

Thanks for the reply, snitchythedog. I am happy you like what I did with it.

I still have a couple of the war machines that came out when this one did. The others are missing wheels from the dry fittings...the missing bits would be easy enough to make copies of if I weren't so lazy.

Great job on these guys, perfect timing for the 4th of July!

 

...I hadn't thought of that. We haven't done any 4th of July stuff here in years. It used to be a really special day with BBQs & fireworks when I was a younger Guy.

I am glad you like the piece, Corsair.

...since someone mention the havoc it would cause in town, I have been thinking of it as a Street Howitzer.

I am glad you like it, Glitter.

Actually looked into it when I was back home.  They are street legal.  Powder is the problem with the regulations on home storage.  You are not allowed to store as much as you would need to fire it.  

Full scale

Back home I had a guy on my street that fired blanks every fourth and new years eve out of a shotgun.  Had approval from the sheriff and everything.  I always thought I would be fun to one up him. I also thought it would be worthwhile for my daughters suitors.

"Street Howitzer" is also a slang way of referring to  a sawed off shotgun.

An erstwhile friend, Matt Copinger, made his own 6 pounder for Hamilton's Artillery (Brigade of the American Revolution).  He did the carriage & purchased the barrel.

 The barrel weighed in at a hefty 800 pounds

Earlier last week I did up all the bases on a group of GameZone Goblins. Yesterday I finished the first three of them:

Good work, from the look of those noses they like their shroombeer!

...with three of the G.Z. Goblins mooning the opposition, I thought that rummy noses were appropriate.

I am glad you like them, Glitter.

Looks great, the horse is disturbing, which is good for a Goblin I guess.

Love it!
