    That's kinda interesting. Kinda like the "Ballista" in that image linked by MiniMage on his Goblin thread.

    I linked a ballista? How come I don't remember that? Or were you refering to that link of concepts I found while browsing deviantart? Because I remember linking that.

    My overall thoughts on this model. The movement animation looks a little slow. The wheels look too small. The attack animation is slow. Also, after the flinging of the rock, the throwing arm should bend back into it's inital position so that it wont glitch back after each throw. It will look weird ingame.

    Movement animation fixed. Wheels fixed. Attack animation fixed a little bit. Throwing arm fixed.

    Looks great, certainly can be useful, and the file size is wonderful.

    From most angles, though, you can't see the teamcolor on the bottom of the front. You should consider adding a little ring of teamcolor somewhere below the bucket.

    4/5.

    I still feel like it needs more teamcolor. Perhaps a small TC ribbon around the log of the catapult leading to the cup (I don't know the name of this part). I know that isn't much, but having TC in two small places versus one small place makes a difference.

    For the Attack animation, have the bow bend as the spoon is being drawn. Also, add a release crank behind the spoon, with a rope attached in between.
