Steam Mechs


Again, I have discovered something out in the Aether that simply MUST be brought home to my Caledonian readers.

I have no doubt that many of us have considered what giant steampunk battlemechs would look like kicking the bolts out of one another over the attentions of a lady with incredible breasts…well now you can find out.

Take a look at the following short animated film entitled A Gentleman’s Duel, directed by Francisco Ruiz and Sean McNally for Blur Studios.

Not only is it hilarious and gorgeous…but all the characters look disturbingly similar to several Caledonians of my acquaintance.

  1. *laughs and howls in glee, gasping for breath*

    builders of Caledon! We need steam mechs like these! SO much more fun than duelling by pistols or sabres or … well, haikus were quite hilarious too.

    tailors! I want a corset like ~she’s~ got!

    the Marquis of Manstrumpet… oh I shall have to remember that one…

    ~is in serious need of resuscitation after DYING of LAUGHTER!~

  2. I think my favorite taunt was “Cheese Pirate”…

  3. I got this linked from elsewhere, and thought Bardhaven must have blogged this – if not he ought to. But yes, you already had.

    My first thought upon watching it was “OMG, it’s Caledon!”

  4. I saw the trailer for this back in January and have been trying to find it since. So far the only place I had been able to find it was via a very annoying online forum called Gaia (which seems to be where this has been taken from).

    I’m glad someone finally made a capture of it.

  5. blast!

    “this video has been removed due to a breach of Terms of Use”.

    guess someone got caught being naughty.

  6. And drat, I missed the whole thing. Mayhap it can be found elsewhere?

  7. Now you see Miss Orr, this is why everyone should check The News from BardHaven several times a day, lest they miss something.

    The link has now been updated.

    Watch it quickly before this one is removed as well.

  8. You’re so right, Lord Bardhaven. How could I possibly have foregone checking the News several times each and every day? Links could expire! Short films could be moved!

    I could have lived my entire life not knowing the reference for “cheese pirate”. (Which I’m quite fond of, indeed.)

    Was that John Cleese, voicing the cheese pirate in question?
