About this creation
After some extensive research I have created my own rendition of a medieval battering ram! The only thing not really historically accurate is the fact that I have vikings pushing it.. The only reason I did this was, to be honest, because I didn't have enough figures from any other group that would work better. Plus, that allowed me to deck the thing out in viking shields, and add other viking-like details to the set. Overall, I'm pretty pleased. I couldn't find very many battering rams on MOCpages, and certainly not any that look like this.
The building process was.. interesting. The two sides, holding the wheels, are about 5 and a third studs apart.. yeah, pretty crazy.. That's due to the fact that I used some technic pieces to build up the side, and connecting those two ended up not working out as cleanly as I wanted it to. If I was smart, I would have gone back and put the two sides together differently. However, this did make an ideal amount of room for the ram itself, and for the vikings to push the ram, and well as to make the proper angle for the roof. So all in all, the weirdness in the design turned out fine.
Let me know what you think in the comments, make sure to like and rate this creation, and check out my other stuff, I have been uploading more lately!
A shot of all the MOCs I currently have assembled. I had to steal a few figures from them, but I didn't steal any pieces. These things were kept assembled all together!
