    Trebuchet.mdx is truly outstanding. The detail in the ropes and winches is excellent; the attack and death animations are top-notch. Follow the author's instructions below to make this even more useful. A very desirable model.

    Aspiring modelers take note: aspire to THIS.

    A tidy thing you have there to invade castles. This is certainly something that truly beats the horrible contraptions of WC3. If only there was a better birth animation....4/5

    This is an awsome model :thumbs_up: 5/5. It would be even cooler if you could do a packed trebuchet, so you can make it more realistic.

    Amazing! Perhaps you should make a "packed" trebuchet

    Trebuchets were not traveling equipement, they were made on the spot of the siege, a packed trebuchet is pretty much completely fantasy.
