The Huntsman Spider Tank
is the invention of Isembard Kickass Brunel
, renown builder of awesome machinery. He
constructed it to counter the threat from the huge foot gangs that
swarm over the hills around his workshops. Highly motivated
opportunists and scavengers, the bandits steal pretty much everything
they can lay their filthy mitts on.
The Huntsman is driven by lovely
Micrathena. Her two extra cybernetic arms allow her to become spider
like in her movements. Her head gear creates a bond with the
spider-machine and she communes with it, guiding its movement rather than
Tam O'Rouke built and mans the bell
cannon mounted in the turret. The bell cannon derives it's name from
the casting process. The technology to engineer a cannon is the same
as for making bells. For a bell to sound properly, it must be made
from a perfect casting. Air bubbles or impurities will effect its
resonance. So with cannons, any weakness in the casting will produce
unreliable and dangerous barrels.
Fully armed and armoured, the Huntsman
Spider Tank is a machine designed to destroy hordes of rabble! Its
ingenious leg design allows it to traverse terrain even tracked
vehicles cannot negotiate.
This model ships with a turret. You
