The Aethergraph, Vol 1, #2

   The second issue of The Aethergraph is now available!

  This issue is all about things that fly through the air, be they mechanickal, bestial, or human. It's even a bit longer than the first issue, a trend I would love to continue. Enjoy!

  And, as always, I am looking for new submissions! Especially anything roleplaying related or artwork, but battle reports, minis or rules reviews, anything that is steampunk or VSF-y would be appreciated!

  Look for Issue #3 sometime around Thanksgiving, hopefully.

New Reptilians sighted...

   Reports from Khurasan indicate three new varieties of small reptilians have been discovered. the first, a race of lithe reptilian primitives:

  There are also some amphibians, which have apparently trained the dangerous terror birds as mounts...

   Finally, the last of the three species, and the most terrifying: a giant crocodilian race mounted on wooly rhinoceri!




[Editor's Note: I am going to have to break down and get these. I have been waffling on them for over a year now, and I think I will just have to get them. 15mm beauties from Khurasan...]

Spiffing Work on an Aphid-style Craft

  My fellow aeronautical enthusiasts, I just discovered a smashing piece of aeronautical engineering being constructed, a replica of the reliable Aphid-class ironclad flyer. It can be found at Colonel Thorne's electro-journal location, here.

  The Colonel has other items of interest as well for those of us with our particular enthusiasm for recreating the military endeavours of our modern Steam era. I don't believe he woudl mind me showing a photostat of his works in progress, just to whet your appetites. Which, if they are remotely similar to my own, are near insatiable...

  In other news, a new Scudder has arrived from Parroom Station just today. Naturally, the entire crew needs a solid work-up, and the craft itself needs to be fitted out in appropriate colours, currently being the standard grey of typical Martian liftwood constructions.
