Here are some of the Ships from Hive, Queen and Country. Most of the smaller ships are available in 15mm scale as resin castings from http://www.gamodls.com/Scripts/Steampunk.html

One of teh heavier British vessels. These ships combined moderate speed and some armor protection with heavy lift capability and lots of fire power. Even with that they can be destroyed by The Hive, as you can see!

These ships are actually kit bashed from laserburn scorpion landers https://www.alternative-armies.com/collections/15mm-laserburn-and-asgard-ranges/products/v011-scorpion-air-lander

Two of the light landers. The one with wings is British, the other is American. Both available from Gaming Models. I kit bashed the masters and let Craig do his magic

Heavy ships and Ornithopters face off against The Hive



A model I've been working on for years is this scratch built fireboat Targee for the St Louis City Fire DEpartment. Built by James Eads in the 1870s and presented to the city as a gift by its wealthiest citizen the vessel was one of the first and largest aerial fire boats ever built. It carry tankage for 200 tons of water and had a pumping capacity of over 10,000 gallons a minute as well as being able to gravity dump the water from directly above a fire. It was sent to fight the GReat Chicago Fire as well as serving the City for over 70 years, being upgraded several times.

Nice scratch building - and the background and build of the Targee is particularly evocative.

In the HQC Universe we try and design machines within both the technology and the back story of the setting. The name Targee is from a historic St Louis City firefighter that gave his life in the line of duty in 1849 http://www.stltoday.com/news/local/metro/st-louis-fire-department-remembers-an-early-hero/article_823e636c-d8b4-5a56-b6c6-2998c80e1ee8.html

I just finished this Zeppelin - a lasercut model produced by a new Italian company named Labmasu. Assembling the model was a nightmare but now as it is finished I am happy that I did it.
