    First topic message reminder :

    ..but has anyone thought about making a scorpio or a full sized ballista? http://www.legionxxiv.org/catapulta/
    I think I am going to start making a mini model of one for fun, hopefully leading to a larger one. It would be cool to design one based on modern materials just to see how much it could be improved upon.

    Hello Joergs.
    As usual very interesting and unusual subject. If the bowyer want to know more they can look this tread. Lot infos about this weapon (call fustiball) and some others also interesting.
