Picture of a 'a triple crossbow from the Song period' on this page. Is that what you are looking for? As far as I can figure out an acruballista is a kind of huge crossbow.

Have you got any idea what the Chinese would be for this?

Oh' date=' hi Roddy. I'm not talking about the 三弓床子弩 (sangong chuangzi nu). I've already built one of those. Here's a picture. [img']http://www.act.com.sg/dominion/images/triplebowsiegecrossbow9.jpg[/img]

I've heard of there being a Song dynasty steel crossbow and was wondering if I could find more info on it. I think it was called the Song steel arbalest - aka Divine Armed Crossbow - 神臂弩 (Shenbi Nu)

Thanks Skylee,

It doesn't look like a siege weapon. Maybe I was mistaken then.

I can't seem to load the page. It just stops at the blank image box stage for me.

Liang Jieming, great site but you might want to rework the frontpage, and pick a better site hosting company.

Angelfire, being a free host, is blocked in China. Some people will go to the effort of using a proxy, but lots won't. Unless you really are completely broke, a couple of US$ a month will get you accessible, more flexible hosting.

I'm working on it... I'm working on it... It's got 4 different front page pictures at the moment.

Hmmm... then I take it that, Roddy you can't view it?

I'm working on getting the whole thing translated into Chinese. I might get a proper domain host for that when that's done.

Yep, can see that fine now. Not sure about the fixed background though . . .

:wink: I thought the fixed background was just appropriately, disconcertingly cute... but it's only immobile in IE. Use another browser like netscape and it scrolls like everything else.
