UGEARS goes romantically medieval and invites you to become a siegecraft expert with its new exciting model – Archnallista 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.
HOW UGEARS ARCHBALLISTA-TOWER WORKS
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 Archballista 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 four 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 Archballista-Tower model. 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. 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.
Practice your aiming accuracy, take over the castle, dive into the romantic times of true chivalry and maybe save a damsel in distress with UGEARS Archballista and Tower model.
