Very nice. My only question(and depending on the answer, complaint) is does the Trebuche work? Will it fling a brick across the room?

Great! That's a good collection of equipment there. I would love to see those used in a moc, especially since the engines are uniformed with each other.

I'm a big fan of seige equipment and these ones are great. One question: do they have some way of moving (ie: a place for a minifig to hold and push)? This is something many of the new sets are lacking.

So true. But I suppose a minifig could push without a handhold.

Are the fire wagons supposed to be holding smoldering ammo for the trebuchet to fling?

thanks guys for your comments.
The trebuchet woks but it hasn't got a sling.
"One question: do they have some way of moving (ie: a place for a minifig to hold and push)? This is something many of the new sets are lacking."
Yes they can move and have a place for a minifig to hold and push
i'm going to post some pics for every single siege engine, so here you are:

Nice work Marco. Hope you don't mind me pinching some bits n pieces (ideas) from your builds? I've been struggling to finish my orc siege engines for ages!

I agree with Burkey42, I will have to borrow some of your siege engines. I like the fire coaches in particular. Nice looking and very realistic.

Hey MTL,

Really nice work! I'd love to see these in action - even just build a simple big gray wall with some crennelations and defenders on top and then array these siege engines with attacking army in front.
