A Rock Lobber, also known as a Stone Thrower is the greenskin name for a catapult.
Rock Lobbers are usually powered by twisted Squig hide ropes, which create enough power to hurl large lumps of rock across the battlefield. Rock Lobbers sometimes use counterweight mechanisms to propel the missile.
Weapons and Equipment
Rock Lobbers come in several shapes and sizes and are often given colourful names such as Skull Crusher or Man Mangler. [1a]
