Build A New Spin On The Classic War Machine To Test Your Great Conqueror’s Skill!
This new medieval model is inspired by the best examples of ancient artillery, legendary battles of the past re-enacted in films, books, and games. It consists of two parts: the siege machine itself and the mechanical tower. Both units are moveable and have plenty of articulated details.
The Ballista has two modules: the firing unit and the base. The base has adjustable legs stabilising the machine during firing. The firing unit – or the actual ballista – shoots wood bolts. The firing mechanism can shoot up to three bolts in a round. Traverse and elevation mechanism enables the ballista to be set at the required angle in horizontal and vertical planes to ensure the best aim. The lever of the winding mechanism can be found on the right side of the model’s body. The same lever works as a trigger that launches your bolt at the target when the aiming is set. The firing module can be detached from the base and mounted on the top of the Tower – the second part of the Ballista/Tower model.
Decorated with delicate ornaments a classic ivy-cloaked castle tower with a heraldic gryphon/dragon on a coat of arms hides a few interesting constructional features. The gear on the side of the tower is a part of the mechanism that raises the second level revealing the spiral staircase and interior structure. The tower is completely extended when you can see the whole shield with a dragon that is set parallel to the tower’s wall. Aim your ballista to hit the shield and the second level will collapse, dropped by you mighty weapon.
Ballista and Tower model guarantees the most delightful medieval experience to brave conquerors that would dare to accept the challenge of assembling the traditional puzzle, using no glue or special tools – only their capable hands and a little bit of old mechanical magic.
