These three great starter kits for making small tabletop siege weapons pack quite a kick. They’re simple to build, and include well-documented, easy-to-follow instructions. All components are made of quality materials accurately machined and drilled.
The Ballista kit (pictured) is built of laser-cut hardwood and is a real blast to assemble and fire. It’s a bit more difficult than the other two, due to the fact that you need to “power up” the ballista by twisting the torsion skein. The finished weapon measures six inches tall and fires small wooden projectiles 30 feet.
The Catapult (onager) and Trebuchet are fun to fire too — reaching 12 feet and 18 feet, respectively.
