Not sure I quite follow your banter, sir. "Stcky'd"? Sounds a trifle mucky after I passed it through my human-to-cyborg translator. (But then my babel fish did not pass its medical after the last time trip.)
Did the discussion arrive at any ideas for Steam Western activities at the Asylum?

About a dozen of us turned-up for the informal gathering at Camber. On that basis we have a core of people wanting to do something in this sub-genre. We have targeted Lincoln as a definite date to be ready by and now need to discuss practicalities and what we can and cannot do with Major Tinker at that event.

I think a fast draw would be one idea. But not with my solid brass peacemaker!!! Shocked

I have a couple of steam western looks that I've been developing and over the past year, I have been looking a little more seriously into the weird west thing. Unfortunately, I didn't make it to the meet at high noon at the seaside due to other commitments but I was in my gambler's suit with my Doc Holliday (tombstone) shoulder rig on, so was with you all in spirit.

I too managed to fail to attend the High Noon meet at Camber, but was sporting a western outfit on the Saturday. I will endeavour to make more of an effort to organise myself if something is arranged for The Asylum...

Unfortunately, I didn't get chance to take any photos. Unless anyone got one of me on Saturday during the day...

After doing a bit more research today, it appears that he actually wore two different shoulder rigs during the course of the movie. Not sure why though.

Next time I'm in that particular outfit, I'll get some pics.

If we're looking for a suitable soundtrack, may I recommend "The Copper War" by The Cog is Dead?

The Cog is Dead - 04 The Copper War


... although my favourite "cowboy" piece of music is still the bar-piano remix of the Red Dwarf theme from Gunmen of the Apocalypse episode. [filmed at Larado, the western town which has been bought up in discussion before.]

I shall have to order that album Grin


But having recently played  Fallout New Vegas (twice trhough) I've had Marty Robbins Big Iron stuck in my head since, I think some enterprising Steampunk band should do a cover Cool

I even found a cool animation

Another piece of steampunk music that would be appropriate is the Clockwork Dolls' "The Ballad of Black Jack Jezabel". Why do I always assocociate this track with Steamblast Mary?

Not me you understand, but that's the picture that I fashioned my holster rig from

Due to ongoing computer problems, this is the first chance I have had top post since before camber.

at the meeting, I bought in the pair of Nerf Furyfire "Ten Shooters" that I bought on ebay.



I think that if we are working towards a Nerf Shootout at this years Asylum, a priority has to be identifying models that have a look that is suitable for the Steamwestern imagry, and modding andor painting to get the right look.

I think that the Nerf Rough Cut


And the Nerf Barrel Break IX-2


Both fit the bill.

The Spectre REV-5


Also shows promise.


I took the time to talk with Tinker about the use of Nerfs. The prohibition of battery powered guns has nothing to do with event insurance, and was purly a measure to ensure balance in the Steampunks V zombies game. So there is scope for anyone who wants to try their hand at the Nerf Vulcan Gattling Gun Mod.

There is a mod for ramping the fire rate to 500 rpm, but that just seems a bit excessive to me.

This is Hugh Jackman's revolver from Van Helsing. A tad classier offering than the Jonah Hex examples. I like the way they've included a Webley cylinder.

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Still along with the crossbow it perhaps has some design ideas that could be applied to a Nerf.

Someone has beaten you to it - I don't know the name, but there was a chap in Camber with a splendid crossbow mod on a Maverick.

As for guns for Steam Western, if it hasn't already been mentioned, you might consider the Lanard Rotator X-8:

They can be expensive and hard to get hold of, but of all the dart guns I've seen I believe it would be a suitable contender. I'm awaiting one from Amazon and it will get the attention it deserves when it arrives.
