Roman composite crossbow Arcuballista Low-poly 3D model
Low-poly historical accurate (as close as possible) reconstruction of a late roman crossbow, called Arcuballista. This kind of crossbow was depicted only two times on reliefs in the West Roman Empire. They seem to have used a rotating nut trigger system, like the kind I modeled here. The bow could have been made from wood or a composition of wood and linen fabric. My textures show the composite version.
The file includes:
- Arcuballista with shaft, bow, trigger and nut as separate objects
- Shaft with handle, wedges and pins (500/573)
- Bow with string (574/586)
- Nut (106/110)
- Trigger (46/48)
- Fully mapped and textured with simple diffuse maps only.
- In real world scale (centimeters).
- Collapsed to editable poly, attached, logically grouped, layered and named.
- Pivots of components are set in right position for movements
