Ballista, Version 2
Designed for the Castle Contest from Classic-Castle.com, this is my second ballista.
About this creation
Hi. I haven't added a page for a while. However, driven by the Castle Contest over on Classic-Castle.com , I have made a new ballista. It started by trying to take my old Ballista and improve it. This is what I got. Needless to say I didn't like it, and so decided to make a completely new ballista.

This ballista uses real torsion, the same way that real ballistas are powered. A looped sting is twisted, and the power from that twist is the torsion.

This is the firing block:

It is pulled back...

...by a soldier, who then turns the wheel to release the mechanism and fire the ballista.

Nice design and colour choice. I don't care for the light coloured string, but it doesn't detract from the overall design. Lee.
