la Catapulta De Muerte (The catapult of death)

Posted Image

   This Trap'ekien catapulta is a massive, orc designed weapon, that flings doom where ever it's ordered to (usually Mitgardia :devil: ). It's six wheels are designed to move on all terrain and are even at home moving through hilly terrain. It has the capacity for a crew of six and an archer for defense. It can launch a projectile of up to 120 kilograms more then 300 meteres (forgive me i'm american so i'm not used to the metric system :blush: ). The main catapulta is supported by a thick iron frame, with a massive boulder to counterwait the catapulta on one end. Due to both the heavy wheels, counterwait, and frame this paticular type of catapulta is heavier then the average projectile siege weapon. Because of it's excessive wieght, it can not be pulled by any normal beast of burden like a kreole or oliphant therefore the largest creature to inhabit Trap'ek (in the East of Historia) was needed. The Kai'reen (Kai'reem as it's spelled by the desert nomads).

The Kai'reen is a large arthopod native to the northern deserts of Trap'ek. They survive in large herds of fifteen to twenty individuals roaming the desert, searching for oaises and pockets of water. They can survive long periods of time without water because they can store lots of liquid in the pockets on the top of their bulbous heads. They're size and the harsh conditions of their environment (where only the toughest can survive) provides the best animal to pull the catapultas of Trap'ek.

Due to the sheer heaviness of the catapult, it can become a vunerable target on the battlefield. In order to prevent valuabe and expensive weapons from being destroyed, a special division has been devised. Riding ontop the backs of the swift and vicious Arachnis Areanuses, the spider jockys!

Typical Nocturnians, thinking big guns will win the war...  :hmpf: :laugh:  

This is very nice! I love all the different war machines that people are making. Though these Guild posts are getting rid of regular Castle MOCs.  :tongue:

Impressive beast of a machine! The spiders are pretty cool. DOES IT FIRE?!? (The all important question!)

And of course the big guns will win it... Grond got them into Minas Tirith, didn't he?

I'm glad you noticed, those took ages to build. If anything the legs are the hardest part about designing a spider because there are so many of them.

Thank you, and yes bigger is better, unless you need something really to do something then....

I think this whole guild thing is perfect for the forums though. I normally don't build castle MOCs but this guild contest is getting me to.

Thank you so much. Yes it does fire, just not very far at this moment. With some minor modifications it could actually fire pretty far for a lego catapult!

In the words of those brave orcs who lost their lives at the battle of pellenor fields, "Grond! Grond! Grond!"

A great creation  :thumbup: The Kai'reen is an interesting beast of burden, looks very cool. The spider jockeys look nimble and swift, which is a useful set of skills in a fast paced battle.

Holy smokes! That is awesome. :thumbup:
Those spiders are really cool too! And overall I just like the size of that.. thing.

Though I doubt such a machine will get far in the lands of Avalonia, with all the forests and rocks.. :devil:
