Catapult Crew (Fredericus-rex)

Sculpted by Markus Eckmann and available from Fredericus-rex, this set can be used for not just catapults and trebuchets but as handworkers, labourers etc.. I really like the style of these sculpts..all very natural looking  and  I hope Markus adds expands the range
After you´ve wound up the weapon what else is there to do apart from have a beer or pick your nose ? :-D
Captain Sledge and corporal Hammer
Ammo carriers and the "aimer" He is meant to stand on part of the construction of a siege machine but the base would have had to be shortened and he has more uses as a single bod.
Alongside the Zvezda Catapult
Part 7 of the Pirate cutter. Not a lot really..just the addition of a Wheel.(basically...I´m just putting off doing the masts and rigging :-/ )

    1. Thanks :-D
      The wheel...similar to the one at Bennos, an old Airfix wagon wheel with some bits of heated up pins stuck in the sides..a pin with a bobble for the middle and a bit of cork for the housing :-D
      Cheers
