What to buy the girl who has everything for her birthday? Why not please her with the ultimate in steampunk devastation, the Righteous Bison Indivisible Particle Smasher.

You know how it is, there you are in the office at Crowsnest Towers trying to work out if you should go to the Eastercon or not when someone suggests a picnic on the Venusian lowlands, or a lark on Luna. You have the salmon and cucumber sandwiches, but what to do about the vicious hundred foot-tall armoured reptiles and carnivorous plants?

Then it comes to you. A quick trip later to Dr. Grordborts' laboratory and you are well equipped for all an antigravity vessel needs for a quick excursion.

Only the finest packaging for this quality tool of death.

Part of a most deadly range for sir or madam.

The detail shot.

In the bushes, for the ambush.

The Victorious Mongoose. The small cousin.

The deadly projector.

Dial it up to six, sir, and quick about it.

Thanks to Dr. Grordborts Infallible Aether Oscillators over at for equipping the SFcrowsnest expedition to the Martian badlands with all the shooting irons we needed to preserve our dignity and lives intact.
