Whats the humdrum about Chaps? Adventures into Victorian Science Fiction and Steampunk with ramblings about Aeronefs, Dirigibles, Land Ironclads, Anarchists, Dinosaur Hunting, Terranefs, Aquanefs, Mad Scientists, and all manner of electric contraptions and steam conveyances. It may not make sense, but there will be claret and a nice cheese board at the end. Tally-Ho and "Vôtre dans une sauce au vin blanc!"

Early Machine Guns
To add to my earlier posts of real life VSF period weapons, I offer the following early model machine guns:
Colt model M1895 Machine Gun (USMC Museum)
German Maxim Gun: note the padded knee rests on the rear of the tripod for gunner comfort and correct positioning (USMC Museum)
A different Model 1910 Maxim Gun with Gunshield and wheels which saw service in the Soviet Army of WW2 (NRA Museum)
