M'lord, our engineers are overjoyed to bring you news of the completion of two new siege weapon designs.

These ballista will tear our enemies to shreds.

And even though a Nocturian can't hit the broad side of the barn from two feet, our archers will enjoy the protection of these wheeled mantlets.

Mighty impressive siege machines Z!  :thumbup:

It's great to see something that actually looks to scale with minifigs and made out of the materials it should be made of! Time to get our Mitgardian siege works operating....

Brilliant ZCerberus!!! The mantlets are really good!

That ballista is a little bigger than mine :wink: , very nice!

Is the spears to the ballista dark brown? Where are they from?

They are dark brown.  I have gotten them in multiple sets I think.  The PotC cannibal escape comes to mind.

Whoa, that's brilliant.

These in conjunction with your WIP trebuchet, I think everyone will be too scared to join any guild but Avalonia.  :tongue:

I'm surprised the ballista works so well, evidently you've combined looks and functionality very well. How far does it shoot?

Excellent work Z! These are very impressive and the mantlets are a great idea. Great to see that Avalonia is well prepared for anything. Keep up the good work :thumbup:
