Trebuchet and Catapult!!!

Alright... these, it turns out, are rather too large to use for the game, but I figured you guys would get a kick out of them anyway.

I'll get me a couple and build them just for fun. (and for shooting lumps of clay 20 feet, as they say I can

Awesome. I wants some.

As for shooting lumps of clay - bah! I'm all for wadded up newspaper soaked in gasoline. Double damage on treemen!

In the HOUSE!!!!! And f'ing HUGE! (the trebuchet looks "life sized" next to GW minis). I'll try assmebling them tomorrow and shoot at the cat for fun. After that, it's time to pimp them out with bitz. They're $40 for the trebuchet and $30 for the catapult, if anyone is interested, you can buy them on:

www.brooklyn5and10.com

Next to it are some LOTR orcs and a battering ram, for scale. As you can see, it's WAY too huge to use for WHFB... but it's actually pretty close to historical trebuchet scale. It would make a nice terrain piece or objective for a game.

Anyway, I couldn't put the basket together due to lack of glue, but it had enough weight on it to swing, and it was COOOOOOL!!!! If you apply force with your hand to give it a faster swing, it can really thorw objects! I had a small plastic and metal thingamajiggy and it chucked it WAY across the room. Very nice! I can't wait to get me some proper wood glue and permanently fix this thing. Of course, it'll have to be properly pimped out with all sorts of bitz. I'm thinking it has to be GW Ork bitz. I can't think of anything else that would work as well.

Anyone have that snotling with the spyglass? :)

Gimme all that! I need bitz, bitz, and more bitz. Errr... but let me put it together first. :b

By the way, instead of the weight that comes with it, I'm going to pimp it out with a giant cage full of various metal minis. I'll figure out the ideal weight, the put somewhat less minis in there. I can add weight to it later with magnetic cards on the underside when I want to go for more distance.

Stupid crap distracting me from finishing my army for the Colonial. :lol
