Steampunk has many variants, but one of the classic backgrounds for the genre has been the sea, as first described by Mssr. Jules Verne in "Twenty Thousand Leagues Under The Sea". I have put together this small offshoot of the Steampunk Tribune to delve a bit deeper (so to speak) into this topic, and hopefully will be a repository of Nautical Steampunk information.
Additionally, aside from nautical Steampunk, Second Life fictional works, to better document the burgeoning Steampunk narratives in the Steamlands!
Getting back to Steampunk, Air Lords of Airia is a series that came out earlier this year, and this short has a nice bit on air-combat. Though it has strong Steampunk stylings, I'd say there are more Deco-esque... which is perfectly fine! For more details on the Air Lords of Airia, please visit their website, at: http://airlords.eu/?lang=en
To the delight of all (except the 30,000 sailors and Marines at Camp Custer, MI), the early part of the century saw a good number of commands making unique designs using service members for the designs. Above is an American shield, and the below American Eagle! For more examples of formation photos, please turn to the Carl Hammer Gallery for more!
A happy Veteran's Day to all who served, and thank you for your service!

(Note: More Steampunk uniform entires are hot on their way!....)
As there is no "Jane's Fighting Airships" (as opposed to "Jane's Fighting Ships"), I'll make a point of posting a bit more of intriguing imagery of Steampunk Air and Sea ships. The above is one of my favorites, the "Desert Airship", by siversword9 (though I'm confident a beauty like this would have a fancier name)! Please do enjoy!
