Testing the new siege machine
« on: January 14, 2019, 11:29:18 »
The word I had suggested was: Trebuchet!
I thought about building one with my hands but I discovered I did not have all this dexterity with wood, screws and projects.
So I turned to the Internet and found this beautiful, wonderful magnificent Trebuchet!

I have gathered all the siege experts (you will recognize the sets) and we have tested it.

Let's round up all the Siege Masters (I have always imagined them as mercenaries, for this reason their armor is more used and worn than those of the knights)



Someone does not feel very good but wanted to be present anyway



An inaugural toast!
We know that where there is a catapult there is also plenty of beer ...

Now they can add "come equipped with trebuchet" to their curriculum of mercenaries

This is some great stuff. How much did the unit cost and where did you order it from? I wonder if you upgraded the sling with a metal mesh you could sling burning tar covered stones...

I bought it on Amazon (US site), try searching for Mini Trebuchet Kit.
It is really beautiful and fun to build!
I'm looking for a solution to launch fiery balls and your idea seems perfect to me!
