The Duke of Rutland's Mobile Artillery

Here is the latest device for the Duke of Rutland to help crush the Socialists in the city of Leicester, a mobile artillery piece. Having received aid from Moseley's government for the attack at Houghton on the Hill, (the last Partizan game), the Duke purchased a 3' naval gun to mount on his yacht. But this gun was too big and cause the yacht to be unstable, so the Duke "acquired" a stream truck from the local brewery, Ruddles Brewery, and mounted the gun to this. Now the wagon is being mobilised to be used in the Assault of Leicester, (the nest Partizan game).

  5. You could take someone's eye out with that! My advice would be not to traverse the gun as it might tip the lorry over! Excellent job, Worthy of you chaps best efforts.

  8. A smart equipage there. It should be quite effective, but I'd like at least a couple of chocks against the wheels before tugging the lanyard! ;)
