300 (part 2 of 2) by Alexander

Movie Description:

My friend and I were feeling bored one day, so we began talking about various gruesome dwarf/elf/goblin deaths in our fortresses. In that moment an idea came to me in a beam of golden light. After about an hour of feverish modding and gleeful testing (often interrupted by fits of maniacal laughter and helpful suggestions from my friend), I had created the ultimate long-ranged weapon: the Dwarven Hand Cannon. This weapon is so powerful, it can send a bronze colossus flying twenty tiles.

I'm the aforementioned friend; thus I have the mod, too. It's nigh on identical to Alexander's version, except the cannon itself is heavier (more power to hammerblows by the weapon itself, though no effect on firepower :D) and that it is called the "hand-held cannon" instead of "dwarven hand cannon". I have also uploaded a vid of it in action, aptly (though possibly not so creatively) called "Cannons!".
