hey ppl
great FX Challenge....hope it's cool if i join in...

i dont have much free time (who does) but hopefully i will be able to see this through to the finish.
fortunatly enough i actually had a book on siege weapons, with a picture of a treb on the cover, i'm pretty much copying that design (see insert)...apparently it was "used by the armies of king charles III of naples against pope urban VI in the castle of Nocera, 1385"hopefully i will be able to build a fitting "castle of Nocera" to blow up, if i can find any pics..

only recently started with houdini and whilst i dont have much experience with this app i'm gonna try and do this challenge and hopefully improve my skillset with houdini...

not much to look at yet, just a blocking model of the treb.
next job...detail the mesh...

hopefully some updates in the week..
thanks and good luck...
tak..
