Here is my entry into the Mini Castle Contest VIII over on classic-castle. Thanks to critiques, i have made it better, and I hope you think so to. I have found a way to get rid of my Brickarms pieces, and have made 2 ballistas instead! I have had immense fun with this creations, and I hope you like it!
My second design, without using Brickarms. I quite like this one. If you look, I attached a minifig arm to the arrow, it fits nice and snug right in! Hopefully from this picture you can get a gist of how to make it, feel free to use it if you want.

Awesome, but isn't this the exact same as your last moc (your 2013 BBG entry) with different foliage?
Somewhat. Like I said in my BBG entry, it was for both BBG and The Mini Castle Contest VIII, but I couldn't use brickarms. So I redid it.

Trying out some of C. Maddison's pine trees I see! :)
Actually, I built them before he did, he just posted first. :) Brother Steven came up with them.

I'm liking the ballista matthew. It's been a while since I've been active on the pages, but your creation is really sparking my interest to start again! Good luck in your contest. ~RORY~
Thanks Rory, I am glad I inspired you to start again! Build on!

Have you posted it over there yet? Cuz you might have to ask for some grace time as I believe it just went down for maintenance. Good luck in the contest, you have a pretty nice shot at a win I think.
They fixed it in time for me to add it, thanks for telling me!
