The Onager was a powerful siege engine used by the Roman Army during the late Roman Empire in battle and to lay siege to city walls and fortifications in their territories around the Mediterranean Sea and beyond.
This new Onager kit re-creates the way in which the torsion-powered siege engines worked, and can launch a small clay ball (included) and other soft projectiles over 15 feet!
Like all Pathfinders’ kits, it is an interesting and challenging build, with pegged parts for strength- and it really works! (Doesn’t come with warriors, sorry!).
And it can be made for left handed people – just by putting the release mechanism on the left side! Finally – the lefties get some recognition!
Age Rating: 14+ While the kit can be made by people younger than 14, (we think kids aged 9+ have the skills) it does launch a projectile, so is rated 14+. If used by people under 14, please make sure there is parental supervision for the launching.
