Oooh, Schiltron - historical name. I like.
That's fair enough, otherwise it would be impossible to take down siege towers. I'd love to see a siege tower on fire rolling forward in a siege, only to crumble as the timbers snap right at the base wall. Once on fire, do siege towers/wooden siege units stay on fire? Smoking
I reckon one boulder from a trebuchet would knock it down though! That is - one boulder from either defenders or attackers. Can't be careless where you're aiming.
