    Here's the strangest steampunk-related (sort of) web site so far:

    Got a daughter, wife, girlfriend, hostage?

    She can dress a paper doll of Ada Lovelace >here<

    When she gets done, she can go on to dress Madame Curie, Cleopatra, Brittany Spears or Lily Cole, among others.

    Needless to say, I found this by accident.

    Yes. It is a source of pride that we were already planning to include Barsoom before that project was announced. Unfortunately, it puts a bit of a time limit on us (though I'm confident it will be done by 2012!) in that we have a short window of time before images from the movie leak out and Disneyize everyone's idea of what these things should all look like. I prefer Frazetta's images, myself.

    I know that you've retired, Wyrm, but if you know of any other interested unit makers, we could use a full unit line of Green Martians and Rykors...

    For a recent update about the Barsoom part of this mod, check out the posts I made today in the Map, Civilizations and Units threads in this sub-forum. If Barsoom ever comes together, I could see making a spin off mod of it, easily. Hell, the hardest work would be largely done.....

    O-M-G. And I like Traci Lords, although I prefer her..ahem.. earlier work... That outfit is just awful. We could use it as an example of how NOT to dress Dejah Thoris! Who is properly a brunette, not a blonde. But so is Traci....really....

    It's not a case mod. Just a slipcover. Still, very handy for continuing work on the scenario whilst on the Express. Each case is individually "distressed" to ensure uniqueness, according to this article. There is a link to the manufacturers site, which I won't post.:mischief: Another site with less words, more pictures. Now that the idea's out there... I'd spend the money to find a custom book binder/repairer & have them make one that's truly unique.

    Ear Shattering :)
    For a second it reminded of the scene in close encounters of the third kind where they try to communicate with the aliens by sound. Perhaps there is space for such a device in the Lost Worlds scenario ;)

    Can you get iPlayer radio outside the UK? I thought it was for within the UK only - perhaps that's just the video.

    Video is completely restricted. Some audio is restricted. I've only been listening to the delayed available shows. I haven't tried listening live.

    If you click on bonus pics there is a steampunk storm trooper helmet.
