How about low quality ballistæ firing low quality copper bolts?

item quality may affect To_Hit rate, but once a hit is done, material quality determines the damage.

copper is metal which means more damage than wood damage. 

bone would be the next tier damage next to wood, and less than metal.

and I think the ballista tip material determines damage, and not he ballista shaft material.

I support training a child army and their final exam is to kill a clown. They die, they will be replaced :P

The child army is mostly grown up now, and I'm in the process of gradually winding the project down. They'll still get to meet the clowns during their final class trip to the circus.

Bone ballista bolts. If it hurts them too much, go back to wood until they don't care.

And yet another bit of proof that RNG is toying with us. We do 1984, it does animal farm

Does that mean male hydras... oh god dammit.

Bone ballista bolts are a thing?

Also, if you ever figure out why poets/bards/dancers just randomly start butchering people/getting butchered, please don't fix it, I love never knowing when a dance party will turn into a slaughter.

We can make the bolts out of past soldiers. Then we get a return on investment.

Were you going to do a Eugenics program from these above average stats adults?

If you've got werebeasts losing limbs and regenerating them later, hell, you could make the bolts out of CURRENT soldiers.

I was, but after upgrading to .42.06 I can barely run the save for a month without crashing. My current plan is to somehow keep it limping towards the !!F!!-day and then check the students' abilities against the might of the Circus. It's still few very long years to go; hopefully my patience will last that far.

Of course, Twin is neither man nor woman but an unholy eldritch abomination like every other Bay12er. The difference is they hide it better.

Vampire/Were children are great. The only problem is convincing people to not kill them.

Perhaps use catapults as another intermediary if a "light" stone still bruises use a heavier stone. Who doesn't love throwing rocks in their childhood?

Iirc attribute stat caps are inherited, not current attributes - albeit a test would be nice.

Additionally, I have no idea about the body size.

Given the coinstar experiments, I'd fear for the paper-thin skulls.

Though any kids who die can be resurrected by the resident necromancer.

Given that ballistas can take out trees I think a platinum nugget going near light speed would be a little bit safer.
