Brass Goggles write up on Major General Tremorden Rederring’s page

The good Mr Suverkropp kindly wrote to tell me about the
lovely Steampunk wargaming page of a delightfully lighthearted group somewhere in Texas - Major General Tremorden Rederring's page!They're pleasantly free and easy about their
lack of historical accuracy - steam velocipede torpedo's are fired across the landscape of Ouargistan from experimental landships, desperately trying to fight back the Martian menace!

In particular, I very much like the `contest' that one of the players
set the others - someone had turned up with their own landship (the
above Her Majesty's Land Ship Ogress), and a long time fan of
Mr Wells work was so impressed, that he collected a hefty pile of junk,
parts and components, and distributed them to the other players with
the challenge to make their own! You can see the results here - I
particularly like "The Bronze Bunny of Ouargistan", but that may be
due to too much Monty Python. Lovely page, and definitely convey's
the lighter side of Steampunk!

It is a great write up, but as Mike
said on MAC, shame the site isn't updated!
