Guns and Spiders
Artillery and poison gas, great for the First World War.
The Strelets troops are British, but in a gas mask and greatcoat they look like Americans.
I use the gas trailiers as gas generators. Not used as often as artillery because they really needed a favorable wind direction to deploy the gas on the enemy.
This spider is on my front porch. He is the largest spider I have ever seen that was not a tarantula. The body is at least one inch long. According to the Allen County Cooperative Extention: "This looks to be a Yellow and Black Argiope garden spider. They will bite if disturbed but their venom Is harmless." The builders say he has been around for a few days and they just leave him alone. I saw him move, he is very fast. I may have to rewatch Them! and the Beginning of the End for some tips.
