I spent last night and an hour or two this morning to get where I am now. I figured I should be learning dynamics by now, so - are there any good tutorials out there that I can use? I have no idea on how to make this thing work in a simulation.. I also need to learn how to create the ropes and "non-wooden" objects.. any suggestions?

Oh, and derbyqsalano, your model is awesome and the sim looks impressive already!
(Update: Playblasts! :D
I finally managed to get the dynamics to work relatively well! The model itself isn't really finished, I still want to add some detail to the model itself, and I want to make dynamic ropes. Time will show if I manage to do that :)

Feedback always appreciated! Thanks! ;)
I kinda got stuck on the ropes so I decided to move on to the target to avoid loosing my motivation. Here's what I've got so far, the plan is to model a wooden door that gets blown away by the projectile.
