Experiments with Gunpowder 1

Here we see the "helmet cannon" developed by,
Bodkin and Bodger
Blasta Way 13a
London.

It was designed so as to give every Knight artillerie capability on the battlefield whilst leaving his hands free to do the necessary hacking and slashing which was customary at the time.
It will now be test fired by T.Ompkins esq.
3..2..1...
Well.........at least we won´t have to bury him. :-/

  9. HAR! Another great moment in weapon development. I wonder how many pints it took to decide it was a good idea, and how many more to get the poor plonker to light the fuse. thanks for a morning laugh Paul.

  10. Funny stuff!

    OK Litko, are you watching? You now must make vertically standing Batmanesque "Bang!" tokens!

    I also want several dozen of these smoking remains to litter the battlefield ;)
