Siege Equipment Update

Wednesday, September 14th, 2011

This is the progress from last week actually, I’ve been a bit slow on the posting of updates. I’m to the point know where I’m done building the majority of the siege equipment, it’s time to get some painting done on this stuff.

Front Shot, chains are neat...

I’m happy with the way the battering ram turned out, minus a few small grips with how I used the chains.

Some may thing archers are totally expendable, in this case, my archers will be mildly safer than before….until a cannon comes their way.  Most of these were a quick build, I’m either getting better at it or these were just easy to make.  Once I get some paint down on this I’ll have some more posts on it and hopefully a battle report at some point!  A fellow partner in terrain building has been working on a few items, a house as well as a custom siege tower of his own.  Hopefully I’ll get some shots of this and get a  post up sometime soon!

Battering Ram Build

Monday, August 29th, 2011

As part of the siege that I’ve been building items for, this is another build. The siege tower is built and primed, ready for paint, there will be another article coming soon once I begin painting. The plan is to build all of the items for the siege and then go through painting all of them in one fell swoop.

I actually have a bit more green stuffing to do, I just wanted to get it set and ready to dry fit in the battering ram as I was building it. So far, so good, the bitz box has really been paying off as I go through and build things. There are days where I wonder why I have so many bits laying around, and then I am reminded when I’m looking for a random banner, or shield, or something silly, and I have it right at my disposal…it pays off huge when that happens.

I still have to find a good rope or chain analog to hang the thing, I’m sure I’ll find something, I just haven’t yet. There will be more pictures of the roof and other things as I build it. After this, there is manlets and then painting, almost ready for a full on siege!
