Drake-Catapult

5 posts in this topic

Even though the inhabitants of the Dragonpeaks had not much business with the dealings of Historica before, the troops of Victor Revolword march by their fiefdom without ravaging several cities. To meet the increasing threat, Thror III. ordered his best engineers to design a variety of warmachines that are to provide supportive artillery for the foot soldiers - and to rain rocks and missiles down on the enemies that dare to besiege their wealthy cities.

One of the mightiest machines built is a twin-armed catapult that requires the strength of two green drakes to be pulled:

While the drakes are just as sentient as all dragons, Argavius, leader of the palace guard, was bestowed with the command of the artillery unit that is to increase the military might of the Dragon peaks.

Able to launch massive rocks as far as 300 meters, enemy troops will forthwith be hard pressed to get near the walls.

More pictures can be found at Flickr. C&C are most welcome.

Note: This is a modified version of the official catapult, which was part of the set 7021.

Impressive catapult! I like how you incorporated the dragons and the spikes on the wheels are a nice touch :thumbup: Very nice work and it's great to see a Nocturnus build :classic:

The classic dragons actually have the perfect size to have them pull heavy warmachines and I intend to keep this up when I'm going to build more of those.

Since I think it's already done faily well, I didn't change the main body of the catapult all that much when comparing it to the official version, so it's not really my design. I mostly added the two drakes to have someone pull it, altered the shield section to some degree and, where possible, tried to conceal the technic beams to a greater degree and added more details overall :classic:
