Ugears goes romantically medieval and invites you to become a siegecraft expert with its new exciting model – Archballista and Tower. Inspired by the best examples of ancient artillery, legendary battles of the past re-enacted in films, books, and games, this model provides a new spin on the classic war machine to test you great conqueror’s skill.Ugears’ new model consists of two parts: the siege machine itself and the mechanical tower. Both units are moveable and have plenty of articulated details.
The Ballista has two modules: the firing unit and the base. The base has adjustable legs stabilising the machine during firing. The firing unit – or the actual ballista – shoots wood bolts. The firing mechanism can shoot up to three bolts in a round.
Traverse and elevation mechanism enables the ballista to be set at the required angle in horizontal and vertical planes to ensure the best aim. The lever of the winding mechanism can be found on the right side of the model’s body. The same lever works as a trigger that launches your bolt at the target when the aiming is set. The firing module can be detached from the base and mounted on the top of the Tower – the second part of the Ballista/Tower model.
The weapon created to demolish defence fortifications has been in use since antiquity. However, Ugears’ two-parts model refers to the medieval period which is clearly seen from its design, especially, the detail of the Tower. Decorated with delicate ornaments a classic ivy-cloaked castle tower with a heraldic gryphon/dragon on a coat of arms hides a few interesting constructional features: it is a Ugears model, which means that it cannot possibly be a static piece of wood. The gear on the side of the tower is a part of the mechanism that raises the second level revealing the spiral staircase and interior structure. The tower is completely extended when you can see the whole shield with a dragon that is set parallel to the tower’s wall. Aim your ballista to hit the shield and the second level will collapse, dropped by you mighty weapon.
The designers of the model gave the walls of the tower a partly ruined look – with missing bricks here and there – ensuring that you can observe and enjoy the work of the gears, inner frame and the complete clever mechanism. Ugears Ballista and Tower model guarantees the most delightful medieval experience to brave conquerors that would dare to accept the challenge of assembling the traditionally eco-friendly puzzle, using no glue or special tools – only their capable hands and a little bit of old mechanical magic. Unlike a real Middle Age siege that can hardly be family entertainment, Ugears model is designed to bring fun and good times, so we do encourage you to take your heirs on this journey.
