@Madness: I agree with you. I'm not so good in history. I will upload matching recolors this evening (european time). Then you will find recolors with the inscription "Gunpowder" with a more ancient typeface. In addition i will upload barrel recolors with inscription "Wine" and "Ale".

You make something amazing, I think I don't wanna hear the many hours you have working on this set it will be more than few.
Everything looks great, filled with details.
Thank you so much for sharing, that is great for us who can't make a single thing, atleast I can't

Wow, this is amazing, very nice set! I'm used to seeing barrels as end tables, not sculptures, but overall this is just great and will make for wonderful additions to my game.

Very, very nice! I cannot tell you how desperately I've wanted an extra-tall wall. I love historical items and these are fantastic. I've added this to the Content List, and I greatly thank you for your creation - they all look very nice and with the exception of those cannonballs, they're all pretty darn low-poly too. Thank you!

WOW! A very nice set indeed, thanks for making it. This will make castle building so much more interesting.

Cannons

@ igloolik and gcpourroy

Btw... for those that wonders about cannons, they are indeed a medieval invention. First use of gunpowder (as we think for now and as a generally accepted historical fact, is that the chineese was first with the gunpowder, but its now disputed, since there are fragments of french manuscripts with almost the same formula/recipie for gunpowder thats even earlier). One of the oldest still existing cannons where found in Sweden, in the area of Småland (southern Sweden).
We know for a fact that cannons where used in combat since around 1325 and forward. There are quite a few medieval cannons that still exist, that where produced during the 1400 centery.
Dynamite on the other hand, that was a later invention, made by Alfred Nobel ;-)

Will you make a collection file?

Awesome info Galland! Thought I'd add one thing: If I remember correctly, the very earliest cannons were made from wood. Strips bound together by iron rings to form a tube. They were thought to resemble long, thin barrels. Is for that reason that that part of a gun is still referred to as the "barrel."

Another small niggle, those cannons are 18th or 19th Century, not medieval.

The Medieval cannons were mounted on very bulky carriages with four small solid wood wheels.

Not me personally but I'm sure castle and Pirate ship builders may want them.

Thank you for making a fantastic collection of medieval items, many of which are often overlooked. They will help create an even better atmosphere in my medieval 'hood. I can't wait to see part 2 and a part 3 would be great as well
