So glad to finally see that it is working! yay us! :D

Got a question, though: Creative Assembly has all factions building ballistae for both RTw and R2TW - will we be expecting the same, or will factions be nerfed according to historicity, so for instance, no large advanced siege engines or hexaremes for the Britons or Sabaeans?

We're strongly focusing on historical accuracy, so we won't be giving heavy siege weapons or ships to the factions that never had access to them. Factions like the Britons and Sabaeans will have to rely on battering rams.

Those ballistae are a little big, according to what I've seen of the ones from the Hellenistic era, they should be scaled down slightly. They do look really cool either way, though.

You're right - it does need to be a bit smaller, so thank you for bringing that up.

Description

Wreak havoc upon enemy cities with these might engines! As a heavy siege weapon, the Ballista is expensive but devastating against buildings. They are also effective against ships and lightly-armed troops.

A big thank you to Uthum for creating the weapon part of the Ballista and to Beelim for completing and then animating the model.
