Hello Kickstarter! After two successful campaigns, I am finally ready to introduce the Roman Ballista!
Ballistas were powerful ancient weapons that launched arrows at great distances. Making them a prized weapon to the roman army.
These ballista kits make an accurate scale model and even better office toy! The wood and brass parts fit precisely together to construct a very detailed and functional model.
The kits use brass dowel pins and mortise joints for assembly. Simply match the pieces. Drive the brass pins in. Then snap together the parts. Once built, these Ballistas can shoot up to 30ft!
Each kit comes with everything you need except a hammer, glue, and scissors. The parts are CNC machined to insure a precise fit. The baltic birch wood is sanded, stained, then laser cut. The brass pins and other parts are CNC machined from solid brass. After the campaign you will have the option to have stained or unstained wood.
Each ballista kit consists of:
- All parts needed for assembly
- 4 projectiles
- Swivel base
- Spare parts
- Can shoot up to 30ft.
- 1.5-2 hour assembly time
- Torsion powered (twisted rope)
- Wood is Baltic Birch hardwood plywood
- Solid brass components
- Cotton twine and leather components
- No plastic!
Why 14,000? Its cheaper to buy in bulk. So $14,000 is the minimum to make bulk purchases on the Wood, product boxes, and brass parts.

Risks and challenges
Just like my last campaign, I have made several successful prototypes. They all have been thoroughly tested and work flawlessly. The only difference between these and the reward ones is the manufacturing process for some brass parts.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
