A trebuchet is a medieval catapult for besiege of cities. Gravitational energy of the falling multi-ton cargo-counterweight was used in a trebuchet to throw a projectile. Large counterweight trebuchets were capable to break through the city wall by a few accurate hits.
The Trebuchet kit model is a huge structure (model height is 29cm or 11 inches) with a lot of possibilities of using.It can be the most powerful weapon for capturing enemy’s castle or a valuable trophy after the fierce battle.
The model is compatible with miniatures of 25 mm and 28 mm scale.
Please note that it’s a working model: with proper assembling it is possible to launch a small stone at 16 feet!
The set includes flat cardboard miniatures (25mm) of warriors, a few cardboard projectiles, a model of protective stockade and a four-wheeled bullock cart for transportation of projectiles for the trebuchet.
The model is made of durable cardboard of 1.5 millimeter thick; it has double-sided full-color printing and embossing (note that embossing is a unique technology for cardboard models!). The model could be easily assembled without glue or scissors. It is provided with colorful language independent step-by-step instructions.
For a widespread storming of a castle we recommend you to use other sets of siege engines (e.g., a battering ram) and fortress elements (towers, gates, walls) of the UmBum series. You can find these items and a lot of different terrain for war games in our store.
