Presenting... the Johnson Mk VII

JOHNSON Mk VII

   The walker above has been developed for the upcoming skirmish VSF game, In Her Majesty's Name, a variant of the popular In the Emperor's Name rules. I am not sure about the background material to this device, but from what I gather so far, the Johnson Mk. VII is an industrial exoskeleton driven by steam. Naturally, what was developed for industry can be turned to military uses, so I suspect there are militarized models in the works as well.
 
   Can you say EXCELLENT RESULT? Because I certainly can. Yes, I shall certainly be purchasing one of these models when they become available.
 
  Please let me thank Craig Cartmell and Phil Smith for the help in getting permission and providing the image.

I definitely need one of those as well too. if you sign up now to the pre order scheme and they reach their goals then I believe you get one free too!

That hammer looks like a rail road hammer.

This looks just spiffing, I say say!

Very nice, but it needs coil springs at the back of the legs, not those rubber looking things and more brass.

I am going to join the pre-order scheme once I get back from our trip next week and see how much money my wife has let me keep.

Who am I kidding? I am a teacher, she's an engineer. She made the money in the first place... :)
