Colonial Empire Artillery Crew - 6 Man, Albanus Zinge and Pigeoneer with Homing Pigeons bundle.
A 6 man Colonial Empire Artillery Crew plus Albanus Ziinge Steampunk inventor extraordinaire and man with an exceptional beard.
Created as part of a joint Curious Construct and Zinge Industries Kickstarter we have a 6 man crew set which were sculpted by Rob Angell of Curious Constructs. Also created as part of the same joint Curious Construct and Zinge Industries Kickstarter we have a pigeoneer with homing pigeons sculpted by Harry Castle which is also included in this set. The specially trained pigeoneer who has access to a host of mechanically enhanced avians. Inspired by the resounding success of the fighting carrier pigeon these homing pigeons are a natural progression.
The blending of body and machine is a notion we have been working on for quite some time and these are first fruits of Mr Weyland's labours and we hope to see more of his work in future projects. Part of the enhancements lead to an increased intelligence allowing the pigeon to receive some rudimentary schooling and instruction. The brave pigeons are able to identify chosen targets from the relative safety of the firmament and then the unfortunate quarry is painted with guano from the air. The guano is laced with a unique chemical compound that is added to their millet. The missiles are able to lock on to this indicator therefore dramatically improving accuracy as they are able to home in on the target, even a mobile target is no problem. This unfortunately will put an end to the myth that being defecated on by a bird is lucky.
