Hansom Tank

Cracking new release from WestWind this month for EotD, perfect for any VSF setting.
Looks just the business for a sojourn on Mars I think!

Jedadiah Tankovsky built the first Hansom tank in 1875. Originally conceived as a mode of transport for important dignitaries and people of well-to-do the Hansom Armored Conveyor was an unarmed two passenger and driver machine, driven by twin three horse power Infernum compression engines built by Harrison & Harrison of 36 Leather Lane Holborn. However Lord Howell of Keffbourne Master of the Queens Armories saw another application for this most wondrous of machines. By the addition of a Gatling gun and a gunners seat he created the worlds first Tankovsky or Tank as the lower classes came to call it. Another excellent model designed by our master model maker Andy Rawling to add to your Empire of the Dead world!
