This one is quite small compared to what I'd hoped...
About this creation
The idea of a watch tower that could see Ghostland Plain troop movements and predict where there would be attack came in the form of a scout officer who was a retired bird-man. When he used to jump off towers with his makeshift wings, he could often see two-to-three miles out. There was a request for 6 troops, almost 140 applied. The chosen 6 were excited, and quite nervous at the idea of a watch tower. They had expected it to have been made out of some extremely thick wood, or iron, or even rock, but what they saw made them pick straws, then flip a coin to decide who would climb the wooden mast. It was extremely effective, 8 hours after the tower became operational, it was able to locate a build up of enemy forces, and a rough idea of where the attack was to be. It was a success, an entire formation (40) of walkers were destroyed when twice as many Tim's showed up a few minutes before the walkers had been able to move. But this prototype had to use semaphore, and with the introduction of artillery walkers, anti walker vehicles had to arrive before the entrenchments came into range. The prototype radio was designed, it was prototype and blew itself up if it was turned on for more than 5 minutes. By the end of the end of the second hundredth war, almost 300 were being used 24 hours a day.

Great detail. I like the landscape. The tower and jeep look interesting. I like how you built the machine gun on the top.
Thanks, the jeep is an edited Pharaohs quest buggy, and the thing that looks like a machine gun on the tower is really a telescope, but I ought to have made it more obvious, so the fault is on my side. Thanks for the comment!
