Naw, if this was a real set there would be ugly technic frame pieces visible and the fewer fragile details like the torches.

Maybe at the front, not the tower, that's where kids would grab it. Also, Lego uses less bling, I think the mine defender had only two gold pieces total.

Thanks for the feedback! I forgot to upload this but if anyone's curious, this is how things work under the hood:

Put a huge ram on front of that thing and you have outdone my Dildozer. Exceptional work! :tiger:

Undead get an updated war machine: meet the Scarethrow!

It's a spooky catapult in essence, but unlike its predecessor, this one actually works. The mechanism is gear-driven, manual fire (using system boulders as its payload) results in 8 (sometimes 10) inches of travel distance.

Man, you've been crushing it lately with these war machine builds.  Bonus points for the wonderfully punny name.

Took me a while but here it is in action:

Continuing the theme of 'everyone gets new toys', the elves finally have a ballista of their own:

Now it's no secret that this one can fire forreal since it uses a spring-loaded brick, nevertheless I decided to make said action have a little more grandeur when performed:

That looks really good. I like elves, so having them get a new weapon is great!
