The name of this gun came from a joke my wife saw on a popsicle stick.
What do you call bread made by bison? Buffaloaf! I picture this
weapon turning your enemies into a bread loaf sized pile of ashes and
I had a whole lot of fun making this gun. I could picture the boys on
Venus receiving these guns and being dumbfounded as to how they were
going to use them to "enlighten" the hoards on the planet. An
immediate search of the camp came up with parts borrowed from the
Shock Trooper division (they get all of the good toys) and materials
to boost the energy output via wrist mounted battery! A little
welding and finger crossing later The Buffaloafer was brought
screaming into this world.
“Powered from beyond the grave by the rage of an opium-addicted spider monkey, the Arcane Berkshire Longhorn is devastating weapon in England’s new arsenal of controversial, Magikal instruments of Armageddon. (Incidentally, development of the Short-horn is directly responsible for the extinction of this particular species of monkey, the first in what’s certain to be a long list of ex-beings who defy the Empire)
Development took place at the Ministry of War’s secret Dark Arts research base, situated just outside the small Berkshire hamlet of Little Snitterington-on-the-wizzle. Don’t try to find it on any recent maps – the village is no longer there. An eyewitness to the once and only test firing described the whole conurbation as “being pulled down to Hell by it’s bootstraps” (whatever that means) – A fitting end for enemies of the Empire, but a disastrous occurrence when we consider that the good women of the Snittertington branch of the Women’s Institute had the recipe for an multiple award-winning Victoria sponge cake – it will be sorely missed…..”
To: Lord Cockswain,
Please find attached photography of a specially modified Righteous Bison that has been field tested, stripped, pealed, gutted, examined, probed, and just-in-case...re-stripped. It now sits on display at the Venusian Test Lab out in the Alabamian Backwoods.
The modifications I have made are as follows:
removal of several stock doo-dads.
trimming down of the trigger guard and smoothing off the handle butt.
addition of glass vials to hold strange power liquids
addition of tubing to transport said liquids
trimming out the body to create an engine cover
installation of an engine
The paint is rust over aircraft blue, with graphite weathering.
