SiegeWorks is the first in our ground-breaking series of fully functional model siege engines.
Bash fortress, troop and monster alike as you strike with the mighty medieval Trebuchet or sturdy catapult. Soft missiles can be launched as far as 6 feet! Follow up the bombardment with the rolling battering rams and multi story siege tower with opening assault door.
We've even included easy-to-build nonfunctional versions of the catapults and trebuchet to match the skill level of even the novice builder. Other items in the set include the nonfunctional Bombard and Ballista and a unique system of trenches and campaign tents. But there’s so much more so please read on!
Warning: Flinging missiles of any size or weight can be hazardous! NEVER aim at people or animals, save it for your castles! WWG recommends the use of protective eye gear when operating this equipment. WWG is not responsible for any injuries incured by the use of this model set. Seriously!
The catapult is similar to weapons used since ancient times. While the full-size weapons were powered by twisted skeins of rope, ours uses a single rubber band. It is capable of throwing soft missiles up to 5 feet on a flat trajectory, ideal for use against fortifications or troops in the open. The catapult is 3X4X3in high and is made of 5 sheets of cardstock. Use the optional wheeled platform for extra mobility and the selection of stone, metal or flaming 0.3g projectiles.
Our stone thrower has an optional sling for extra range, about 6feet. Its high, arcing trajectory is useful for pummeling the inside of fortifications. It’s powered by weights added to the swinging basket, coins are ideal for this purpose. The trebuchet measures 3X3X3 in and is made of four sheets of card.
This four-storey tower will crush all resistance! The wheels roll and the gate drops to release mayhem. Use the fighting top for archery or spell support, the lower two levels have arrow loops. Ladders are provided capable of holding minis. The pre-printed exterior textures include plain wood, metal plates and hides. The plates and hides come printed by themselves so you can cut and apply groups of them for an amazing 3-d effect. The tower is 3X4X9in high and is made from 10 sheets of card. Use the giant front roller or opt for more conventional wheels.
Poke a hole with these rolling medieval rams. The removable roof shelters troops while the pointy end does the damage. Or use the optional shed-style ram with wood, plate or hide exterior textures.
More damage, more fun! Unleash the mighty Bombard, or 32-pounder Naval Cannon.
This weapon is 1 inch square, with adjustable pitch angle.
Protect the troops and dig in with these modular trench units. Combine straight, corner and t-intersection trench sections to create an intricate trench network. Place Sappers tunnels at key strategic points.
What seige would be complete without a place for your soldiers and command to recharge and plan the battle ahead. Multiple tent designs with optional gazebo-style bases make for the perfect foundation to launch your attack.
Let’s face it, having a ladder for minis is pointless unless you can actually place the minis on the ladder in a way that reflects movement. The included seigeladders actually support minis at each rung, showing their progress as the climb up and over castle walls!

Siege machines are a must have with any castle build, and these ones even work!
I also love the trenches, that makes this set great for even WW 1&2 games.

I saw it - I had to have it - I bought it. The working Trebuchet is absolutely great! While some may think this set is very much fantasy oriented, I have to say that it is great for a siege minis game with any of the fine lines of 25mm figures and faces off against the CastleWorksUltimate set very well. Not only that, but the trenches are a very inexpensive alternative for WW1 minis gamers who dont have the time or cash to build a WW1 battlefield layout they may only use a few times a year. The trench system is very flexible and fits in nicely for any period you might want to entrench your troops. Strongly recommended!
