A bit of info.....I had someone (anonymously) add a comment about this and the wheeled "ballista" on my Blog...
They reckoned they wouldn´t work. The person had obviously not looked at them properly or they would have realised that they are made using composite throwing arms. I looked it up to check..(always best when answering such comments) and found that they (bow or throwing arm devices) have a collective name;
"Springald´s"..or "springaulds
A ballista is one that uses skins to create the tension..a bit like the Zvezda one or other scorpian devices.

Hi Paul,
here a old illustration of a medieval Scorpion, it is true "Springald" is a collective name. There are always people who know everything better

Thanks Conny
I totally trust your models for their historical accuracy. I don´t know many people who put so much work into the research as you, Alex and Jens
The fact that the person wrote under "anonymous" means to me they are just being a bit "clever", if they can´t link to who they are (blogger doesn´t always allow it ) they could at least put thier name.
If they had even bothered to do a small bit of searching on the web they would have found pictures of such devices...

That little device looks good, a mini version of the one I´ve just painted.
