No Hu-Man's Land

Iron clad riverboats fixed with cannons patrol the Mississippi with an ever vigilant eye on the far shore. The West Bank is littered with the wreckage of robots that have failed to make the crossing. These places are called "No Hu-Man's Land"

Tesla Rangers Enlist! poster

Ok here's another experiment. A recruitment poster. making this actually helped me hash out the backstory for the Tesla Rangers -
... in 1873 the railroads replaced their workers with automatons, but when John Henry died in his fateful contest with a robot pile-driver, the robots learned what happens to things that become "obsolete". They promptly turned on their human masters.

With no weapons able to overcome the robot menace, the bloodshed and loss of life was too massive for the young country already reeling from the civil war. Eventually president Grant, weary of war, ceded everything west of the Mississippi to the robots.

Then in 1886, a young scientist named Nikola Tesla invented a new kind of pistol. the Tesla Electron Bolt Thrower. Armed with this new weapon the "Tesla Rangers" were formed to re-take the west.

Tesla Ranger Dragoon

A little speed painting I did to try and loosen up. This is how I'd repaint a Nerf Maverick to be a Tesla Ranger Dragoon
