Suspicious Padre in Alien Invasion Shocker!

It is with sadness that we are obliged to inform you that there are malcontents within our empire. What, you cry, who could such people be? Well, good reader, it is time to warn your cocoa and put down your wife, and hear the Truth.

The individuals below are part of a sinister cult seeking to infiltrate our cities. By handing out tracts, loitering at corners and devouring passers-by, such types aim for nothing less than the destruction of all we hold dear. Note, if you will, the monstrous features of the creatures below, poorly hidden beneath their robes. Vast braincases, purple skin, glowing eyes, multiple clawed limbs - that is right, dear reader, these people are From Abroad.


What can be done about this space-menace? Are our beloved slums doomed? Fear not. The insidious alien cultists can be detected before the infiltrate our world, largely because they are aliens. Also, they are allergic to gin.

Keep an eye out for suspicious types!


These are aliens too.

Charge, Space Hussars!

Unless you are either criminally insane or French, the picture below will surely fill your heart with glee. Below we see several dashing gentlemen of His Imperial Majesty's Space Hussars, boldly riding against rumness in the name of civilisation. It is proven via Science that a good cavalry charge will turn any foe's guts to water, and that the movement of the steed is proof against firearms and foreign trickery alike.

Here, Private Plimpton prepares to blast the enemy with a plasma repeater. Note the state-of-the-cottage-industry equine accelerator at the rear of the horse, which to the untrained eye resembles a barrel with a little chimney.

And here, Major Effington activates the assault nozzle on his mighty cybernetic steed whilst rushing towards the enemy guns. That's the spirit.


We hope to be able to bring you further revelations in the weeks to come. Until then, wash your hands and abstain from Beastliness. Or you'll die.

Death from Below!

Once again, it is time for the galaxy's foremost space-Victorian-related weblog. After a brief hiatus during which the editorial staff were busy with gin, floozies and laudanum, we can return to our symposium and consider new weapons of war against the alien.

Pictured below is a marvellous tunnelling device, used to insert squads of bold ether-soldiers behind the enemy's lines. Imagine the surprise of Johnny Moonman when this monster drives up from under into his rear echelon! Spin on that, foe of Britain!


Also pictured below is Edward Two Hundred and Nine, a warbot used in the storming of Verdigris. Thanks to the finest in preservative technology, the depicted machine is steered by the brain of an otherwise-deceased marine, preserved in a complex chemical solution previously used only for frogs and gherkins. Note the attractive decorative work and optional trophy heads. Attack!
