I enjoy trying to recreate ancient weapons. I have a YouTube channel (somewhat) devoted to it. https://www.youtube.com/user/MrBigbad76
If anyone has any ideas for me to try to make I'd love to hear them. It will be a long Winter and I love working on projects. I'll post video responses.

How about a full size , functional trebuchet ? No... Laughing Out Loud ...seriously...hows about a medieval crossbow? I dont think we see enough of these fantastic weapons. And besides, who says it has to be historically correct. Depending on your talents, throw some personal embellishment on it....carving...worked metal...inlays...Who knows what kind of cool bolt thrower you could fetch up ?! ...... Big Grin ...mcm
