Hey guys, today a very different thing from what I usually do. I checked at the medieval siege engine on PMC, and it seems to not have a lot. So here I made this bundle, which I hope will be hopefull for your maps. All thoses engines have a pretty accurate size, and were used during the Middle-Age. I made a lot of searchs on a dozen of websites to build them. Now, a description engine per engine to sleep clever tonight:


o�ºLet's start with the Falconet. It's one of the first gun-using weapons in Europe. Mainly used on battlefields at first, it became popular by it's using in navy. Very ranged weapons, about 1km. As you can see, there's a kind of roof, it's in fact a panel to protect artilleriemen from arrows. Used to make breaches in opposites walls.


o�ºThe second one is the Trebuchet, the most popular medieval siege engine in my mind. A long ranged (~200m) and powerfull. My favourite one. Used to make breach walls/bombard opposite cities.


o�ºThe third one is a Ballista, a kind of catapult. It was used only at the beginning of the Middle-Age, but quickly abandonned to Trebuchet. Most of them were taken to Romans by barbarians. Medium range.


o�ºLet's talk about the Couillard. I laughed first time I read this name... I won't translate it. Just know that it's a smaller trebuchet with 2 small counterweighs. See now? Short range.


o�ºThe fifth is the Pierriere. It's a french word, I didn't found any similar in english (it refered me to trebuchet). In fact, those are small trebuchet without counterweigh, but ropes. It was use for the defense, and place on tower. The whole population of a city was able to use it. Short range.


o�ºSixth and seventh pictures are Battering rams. Everybody know what they were used for. They're highly protected from arrows/water. I made 2 rams, a moving one with wheels, and a static one without. In fact, the static one was directly set under the walls. Lighter than the moving one.


o�ºAnd the last one, as famous as the Trebuchet, is the Siege tower, used time ago by Romans and even Greeks. Used to pass above the walls, those were deadly engines. Increased siege towers had catapult on their roof, and a ram below.

I could've sworn a Ballista was a kind of giant crossbow that the roman's used. Whatever. These are really cool!

In fact, there are trouble between the ballista and catapult. Romans used the ballista you describe, however, the one I made is also called ballista. I've read during my researchs that there were confusion between those two terms. Ballista or catapult, catapult or ballista. However, I think the defference is in the mechanic, this one use a kind of horinzontal bow to fire, cattapult used weigh.

There was a story of a guy who was attacking a roman castle and climbed up a tree to get a better view. Unfortunately for him, the Romans saw him and nailed him to the tree with a ballista bolt. his men were too afraid to go up and rescue him, so he had to stay up on the tree for the rest of the battle!

Lol and he stayed alive with a bolt? Those things were 2-3 meters long

I think the bolt missed all the major organs and plugged the hole to stop the blood escaping.The irony that was when they tried to get him down, the bolt wasn't plugging the wound anymore and he died.

Thanks, it was the longer to build^^ Finding the good scale, without it look only like a wooden tower without any depth.

The most historically accurate anything i've seen for a while. I'm giving a diamond and a download.

I was just hoping for a mangonel. :)

I thought about making a mangonel, but in fact, it's very close to the trebuchet. Visually, there would not be a lot of diference (maybe a bit larger?), but technically, the mangonel is more accurate. Thanks for your support! :-)

A mangonel has a shorter and wider sling and is substantially closer to an equilateral triangle. Or that's how I always defined it anyways.

You should just focus on doing more cool stuff though.
