I actually like the "drum" one and think it perfectly plausible from the perspective of a innocent looking object and quick "were one keg short dam!, quick use that drum" lol

It's a "made in Aghanistan" keg.

Cool! Great idea, and brought to life very nicely. 


If I ever get back to my Somali project I need to do something similar with some WW1 Indian Infantry. Some brave Sikh lads used such tactics against Somali fortress gates when the forts proved impervious to the Brits' artillery (didn't really help that the only artillery they had were mortars),
