I had a little project set aside for Gnomevember, but as per usual I only get things done when I've got a game coming up. Today I had a game planned at Cambridge City Games Club (where they do a Sunday all-day gaming session every now and again), and prepared the gnomes for battle... and chugging into battle alongside them was this lovely Steam Cannon. Pictured here in front of my son's fold-out castle (at his insistence). A lovely 1984 Ral Partha model, sculpted by Tom Meier I believe and distributed by Citadel in the UK.
I bought the cannon a few months ago, in pieces but already quite nicely painted - so I took stock of what I thought needed new paint and what was better off as is, shoved some of the parts in the dettol for repainting and for the rest, simply decided to refresh them before reassembling. All in all, a really fun model and the perfect addition to any gnome army. Sadly, I only have a crappy camera so I can't give you any decent detail shots, in fact the ones in this blog post are the only ones I could do that weren't completely blurry! Anyway, I just wanted to show off my new toy, really...
Here it is alongside the rest of my merry (and growing) band of gnomes.
Will post up a battle report of today's action in due course. (Hopefully with some photos taken on a better camera!)
