Trebuchet

Postby Mikos » Sat Jul 27, 2013 10:39 am

Hi Folks..

Over the past "8 weeks" my engineers from the Crownies Engineer Corp. had been working on a new Siege Machine, the so called Trebuchet.

This is my very first attempt to built a siege engine, and it took me around 8 hours to built + some planning aswell.. still i have abit of a hard time to make the projectile fly..
But anyways, hope you enjoy :)

Nice looking trebuchet :) What kind of distance do you get out of it?

Great! That thing makes the catapults we always get look like child's play. Good luck with fixing the net. :)
