Imperial Steam Tank

I feature Russian LARPers pretty regularly because they have a real flair for creating the kind of huge, impressive showpieces I love.  Now they've done it again.  Warhammerlarp brings us this full-sized Imperial Steam Tank from, not surprisingly, a Warhammer-inspired game.

A tank.  With cannons.

These people are gloriously insane.

Nirichaen Font

Pieter Rottiers is the creator of the Nirichaen alphabet, a conscript based on one of the languages in his personal fantasy world. Created glyph fonts like this are ideal for prop use, since they're obscure enough to be unrecognizable while still mapping directly to conventional text characters.
