Description

The metal thing is roughly humanoid in construction though no part of it is flesh. Its torso is a rotund steam engine with bulky cylindrical piston-driven arms and legs attached. Upon one are is a steel clamp-like pincher and the other hand is a finely polished Gatling gun (or Flamethrower or other weapon). It is cold brass and steel face seemingly show delight in its terror far from the expect emotionless one would expect.

Habitat

Constructed exclusively by Hellstromme Industries these metal men can usually be found aboard any Wasatch Railroad train sometimes in squads. Wasatch also uses them as sentries for the rail camps and ghost rock mines as well. Due to the price and costly maintenance there are few buyers for these mechanical menaces.

Mechanics

This creature is located in the Deadlands Reloaded Marshal’s Handbook page 72.
