an Armoury for Victorian Gentlemens

A small set of Steampunk-themed weapons, as requested by Glasmond.

Soooo.. outdated scientific concepts, mechanical verisimilitude and literary references all the way !

PS : Indeed I’m aware that the Flail is a bit dangerous to use, especially for start out/switch off.
Also I pictured it manned by poor workers from Cornwall, used to harsh life and whose safety is judged secondary by their employers, I may go back on that one later.

There are a few reasons for this. Most should be easy enough to deduce but I may explain it someday if anybody is curious.
