    While I come up with concept designs for the next model in the Resurgam series, I figured I might as well do a model from the Elder Scrolls Online. While I myself won't be playing the game, I certainly do like the designs in the game, and I especially like the 20-minute cinematic.
    I decided to model a very...interesting ballista from the cinematic...one that launches bridges. It seems like an almost absurd concept, but the cinematic actually makes it look REALLY awesome. I'm about to star the testbuild, so hopefully I can have some build pics up soon. In the meantime, have the cinematic I'm referring to, as well as screenies.

    base done; kinda rushing the build, hence the tape.
