Thanks Jens, the 'catapult' is almost ready. What is the correct name of this device ? It looks to some extend like a balista but not completly.

Hi Steven, have a look at the set VA 123. There you can see how the device looks like.

It's a mix between an catapult (which throws stones) and a wallcrossbow (which shoots arrows). So it's indeed very difficult to name but I'll try to find the name. Maybe a kind of ballista....but only "maybe"

Just finished the siege machine. I found in a book a reference to similar machines under the name scorpion (schorpioen), in other ones it's referenced as a ballista.

Thanks. I've made the string from the tape of an old music casette.
