Thanks for posting. Some of the stuff on this is nice but some a bit fantastical for my taste.

I'll take a good look and see if I can pick and mix.

I think most are great but that "bell" bombard looks huge.

This is an interesting little kickstarter.... I admire the idea, though wonder who is really going to want ALL those bombards? That's a lot of bombards!
I do think I might back it though, I could find a use for a small selection of these artillery pieces.... You can never have enough late 15th century light artillery on wheeled carriages! And I guess a couple of small bombards might see use years down the line for siege terrain.

Yes, the barricades/earthworks look great!
I could be tempted to get several of these things for future siegework terrain. The earthworks with a selection of artillery - a small bombard or two (I already have the big Perry WOTR bombard), the 'burgundian culverins' and the 'repeating veuglaires' to see off any sally attempts from the defenders....





These small wheeled bombards with elevated carriages look interesting too... Does anyone know what source they are based on? The carriages suggest late 15th century.
