About this creation
Hello all! For once you guys here on MOCpages should feel really special that this is being posted here first instead of on flickr first. I need to post some of this stuff for the CCC outside of the Hobbit's chronology just so I can get it in on time. Anyhow, this is for the "Medieval siege weapons" category on CCC. (Yes I know that there are NOT siege weapons in the Hobbit, but I thought a little bit of artistic liscence never hurt anybody. I really enjoyed making a historically accurate version of the trebuchet that looks realistic colorwise. This was based off of the War-Wolf Trebuchet which was constructed in Scotland(this is NOT a coincidence with my Scottish interests :)

Anyhow, I hope you like it. C&CC are very welcome and appreciated.
















A brief schematic I built showing the main motion within the machine. Specifically, the counterweight, and the throwing arm, and the sling.

There she is fellas!
Soli Deo Gloria!
-Blake

We'll, even if you don't think this trebuchet was used during the events of The Hobbit, it is possible it was used in the battle of 5 Armies. BTW, really cool design! I wish I could build like that. ;)

Man Blake, I don't know why this isn't even more popular!?!? I honestly think it's one of the coolest things you've built. Extremely well done!

Your work is just Epic, Sir, and a clear indication to me that I need to just STAY OUT of building Dio's, altogether: if this is what Great is, then I should just stick to Figs! =) Profoundly inspired work! Cheers!

Quoting LegoLord . Great stuff. Where did you get that tent?
Aha! Finally somebody noticed. I actually got it at Brickfair 2 years ago, but it came in this set. http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItemIn.asp?P=tent&in=S

Great work! I've heard, a highly skilled crew is of need to coordinate the firing process.

Wow! Realistic, to scale, siege weapons are pretty impressive and this is one of the best one I have seen. I love how you added the landscape and the assembling army, This extra effort really sells the power and importance of the mighty machine. Great work, this is beautiful.

I saw this earlier in the day when at work, Blake, this is fantastic - I think it is the best I have seen on the pages! Giving it a surrounding landscape really adds to the overall presentation. Well Done! ~Thoy

Wow, very well done! It looks awesome! Does it actually fire? The counterweight looks way too light but other than that it looks like it would fire just fine.

The engine is really quite a work of art, with its many angles and its functionality. Very nice work.

  December 11, 2011
This is beautiful. There are a lot of really neat details here. My favourite thing is that you have actually taken the time to make the throwing arm look so realistic. Itīs those small details that make all the difference.

Brilliant! I made one of these with wood once, but LEGO is a far more challenging medium. The whole thing looks incredible, and I really like how you did the support. Great work!
