Ironswift Tales City Train by LordDoomhammer Ironswift Tales City Train by LordDoomhammer

A commission made for the Ironswift Tales-Universe, depicting a huge city train (it is exaclty what the name suggests) in this fantastic steampunk universe.

"When the world was collapsing and the remnants of the Rosian Magocracy was looking for anywhere to hide, a part of humanity took to the tunnels and depots of the country’s largest transportation system, the city trains. As the magical stormfront washed over where they hid against mutation and death, the magics built within these massive machines warped with the raw fury of a broken weapon of the divine. Transformed, those refugees became stout and stocky but as time progressed also became the stewards and clans to run what would become the “city trains” of Teras.


Running on magical leylines, the city trains have been the only means to pass through the lethal wilds and giant wildlife across the continent in between kingdoms. Each train having its own distinctive one or two clans, Dwarves as they would be come to known move between each of the capitals with the thump and rumble of their mechanical might, much top the detriment sometimes of ambitious pioneers and ranchers alike."

Very impressive. I like that sense of scale here.
It reminds me one work, called "The Heavy Metal Hero" made by Rodney Matthews.

You did a lot of motivated detail, but I'm impressed this thing goes anywhere without trackage?
Reply
:iconlorddoomhammer:
LordDoomhammer Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2018  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thanks! I think the idea behind is that the train once functioned like a train but was developed into something not utilising tracks :)

Huh? So it basically combines the disadvantages of trains and road vehicles???
Reply
:iconlorddoomhammer:
LordDoomhammer Featured By Owner Jul 3, 2018  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well, considering it's fueled by magic and it's sheer size, I don't think the disadvantages aren't that big (no pun intended) ;)

The creator gave me some lore to put into the description - make sure to check it out :)

Hoi hoi! These move along leylines in the world based on some fallen empire technology. The cities are run by dwarves (in this world they are nomadic rather then in the stereotype of the mountains and hills) and so these city trains have set paths and a few that are hidden from discontinued use.
