Nice, I thought it was gonna be all shops. What a surprise!it looks a bit overly bulky though, If I made it I'd cut it down so my troops could move it easier. I do understand that it needed to be high, for the chain, but... I dont know how to get around that. :? Maybe a wide roof going over the heads of the Falcons that the chain could be hooked on midway over? Nice battering ram anyway.

C. hmm...
Crystal miner? old Codgers shack? Cobbler? Church? Castle? heh, thats one so obvious I didn't think of it 'till last.

C is for castle. Duh! :D

Or a Classic Castle City. :P

Or maybe carpenter, to be a little less ambitious. Or cooper. Didn't you make a CCC standard cooper's shop already? Or am I thinking of another builder?

Very nice battering ram. I think someone had suggested making a wider roof and that would certainly make it looked like a ram with penthouse. Your troops would be safer from oil and arrows as well. :D I really do like it though, in fact I now have another project to plan.

I edited this because after some research, I discovered the name capped ram referred to the head of the ram and not the structure. There were many types of penthouse, from wood to hide. Some had tops that extended straight to the ground, others had a slightly wider top and a wood or hide sidewall as well. Basically if you widened the top of your ram you would have a more defensible piece of seige equipment. Sorry I can't find a pic. I looked, but only found people selling 15 and 25mm miniatures.

Do you have a link to a capped ram? I couldn't find a picture of one.

Here is what I was going for with my design: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/lostempire ... ngram.html

Thanks for all of the comments!

Hi James,

I really like the roof of your ram. It seems similar to the age of king's ram with wood shingles and animal skins on it. The size of the ram also seems appropriate. Good job!

Wow Jb ! :D
That's impressive and realistic.

It's always good when peoples create in a realistic way.

I like the way you made the roof too. The colours are well placed. :D

I really like this model. Like some of the others though, when I looked at the roof I thought right away, "Why doesn't he extend it so his soldiers are more protected from above?" Why else would you put a roof on it? Keep in mind that I'm no historian and I don't even know the names of most to this stuff to research it on the 'net.

As for C, how about Chandler? I don't think many people have posted that type of shop......
