So im pretty sure some people on UG love Medieval Weaponry. Sooooo me, being my smart and classy self, decided to make a thread about it. So just post stories, pictures, and text about your favorite medieval weaponry.

Mine would have to be the Balista. Reason, Its just cool. I like crossbows, and that is like a crossbow on steroids.

Story: We were up camping and the camp next to us had built a small balista and they were shooting blunt sticks into our camp. So that night we sabotage there balista and ammo and build our own, which was bigger. The next day we started shooting stuff into their camp. They got pissed. Nightfall comes and they sabotage our balista, and decide to build a HUGE balista. When I wake up in the morning, they are chopping down 25' trees for the limbs. So we leave them alone. A couple days later they are done with the thing, and when they pull it back it breaks the limbs, sending little wooden splinters everywere. The game warden just happened to be passing by at that moment and called an ambulance. A couple of guys go to the hospital because they have splinters all over their bodies.

Moral of the story: Balistas are badass!

We just tied it up on some logs instead of making a stand. So it was pretty much a sidways bow attached to a couple of sticks.

I still think the Francisca was the best weapon. Even though it was wielded by barbarians. Sort of ushered in the middle ages. =/
