    Greetings,
    I am an ancient weapons enthusiast and reenactor living in Massachusetts. As the primary artillery interpreter for Legio III Cyrenaica and occasionally a Knight of the Order of St. John (Hospitallers), my main focus is on crew-served torsion powered weapons of theose periods. I also like to work with smaller hand-held weapons like the scorpio minor and the cheiroballistra. With familly and friends involved in lot of other time periods, just about anything ballistic is of interest.

    Welcome to the crew.  Lots of kindred spirits here.  Lots of potentially useful info as well.  Looking forward to seeing a cheiroballistra build from you!

    Welcome! I hope you find many interesting things here. And people!  Folks are forthcoming, with info and advice, if you ask, and places to look if they don't know.

    Best!
