This is a mock up of the mock up castle thats going to be on the receiving end of some attention at the WMD Fling weekend.
Due to having received a substantial donation – which I didn’t know about because my alert email from Paypal seems to have stopped off for a couple of drinks and a chicken lunch on the way here and no one actually mentioned it to me – the large trebuchet is due to being construction in two weeks time.
BTW you might like to answer your phone there John.
Anyway you to can build your own Castle Argghhh! with the pdf file below. Don’t get too excited I just pdf’d the drawing file I used for the parts so there’s no instructions.
If anyone else does feel an urge to throw some money in the direction of sponsoring medieval siege engines, the event advertising, the transportation of several engines from around the country, the fire wood for the reenactors, the materials for the targets and stocks, the clean up cost, the production of a large number of cast cement balls and all the honking big arrows, food for the reenactors, payment for the reenactors, petrol money for the reenactors, prize money for the reenactors, counciling for the reenactors, freaken accountants fees for the reenactors by all means go nuts!
You know raising and army, assembling siege engines and investing a castle – even a small plywood one – is bloody expensive and I was too slow to get a government “research grant”.
Just send a paypal donation to my email address. For any donation over $10 I’ll send you are copy of my table top mangonel or ballista plans. So please include a delivery address and which plans you’d like when you put the donation through.
