suggestion and applying to be an expert : LUSENET : Junkyard Wars : One Thread

Challenge: build a ballista and hit the target the most times in 10 min. In case you don't know a ballista is a very large crossbow that shoots javelins. Ballisti were very powerfull and required a massive winching mechanism in order to cock them for firing. There were two types one that used a rope spring on each side for power and the other used a giant crossbow prong. I build these and other siege weapons as part of my midievel recreation hobbby. I'd love to be a expert on the show if you ever do this suggestion or the siege again.

Thank you
