Working on Ballistas ...

Modifying a couple of PlayMobil ballistas. 

The PlayMobil ballista 'out of the box'

This is too tall for use with 54mm figures, so I cut it down by 1cm, by taking out a section near the base. Looking good with my existing ballista crew figures
 Also added a bolt ready to be fired using part of a wire spear ..
