Steampunk Games - Ironclads and Ether Flyers , Ironclads and Ether Flyers is a set of 19th Century Aeronaval miniatures rules. It focuses on battles between seafaring battleships and aerial gunboats and is set in the Space: 1889 universe.

Trains then haul the goods to the cities that want them, earning cash for the competitor who gets there first!

If you want to establish new cities, you’ll build schooners or airships to reach faraway lands and flying islands.

Bands of stouthearted Extras are led by Main Characters -- from the streets of London to the hills of South Africa and from the glorious charges of the Crimea to the maelstrom of the American Civil War.

In addition to standard colonial era actions, special rules are included for adding various science fiction elements to the plot, including, but not limited to, steam conveyances, fabulous inventions, glorious weapons, and strange creatures from the depths of the jungle or the core of the Earth.

The king leviathans, the battleships, are the largest vessels. Maneuvering in support are the smaller ships of light cruisers, destroyers, and others ships.
