I would say that would not be a classic castle.

Aww, that's too bad. I was hoping we could stretch "my favorite castle theme" a little. :P

I almost forgot about this....

Lots of great categories this year, I can feel the creative juices flowing already.

Hi. I have a problem. I have built a couple entries I would like to submit, but it will not let me. It always says that the page can not be found. Can you help me?

Hi. I can help you. Our entry pages are not up and running...yet. They will be soon.

I have another question. If we have to build 3 entries for the field to goblet category, are we able to take 5 pictures of each entry or 5 pictures total?

Ok, two quick questions, is the forest lair category strictly for outlaw faction style builds or is that just to describe what we should build for that category? And the second is if we can build something for a normal category with the baseplate requirements outside of strictly 48x48 or 32x64; as long as it is under the stud could of 2304(48x48)? Thanks!

Also, yes I have a flickr now, so no Mocpages from me. :)

It would be five pictures total. Fifteen pictures would take a long time to grade :wink

Thanks.

It should be an outlaw faction but it could be your own custom outlaw faction.

Baseplates are not required and not using them can be more creative at times. The moc footprint still needs to fit in the 48x48 or 32x64 rectangle dimensions. Thanks!

I'm looking to participate in the CCC for the first time this year. For the Forest Lair category, I know you said it has to include an out-law faction. But can this out-law faction be made up of non-humans?

Yes. I could see an outlaw faction of dwarves, trolls, or elves for example.

Hi! I was wondering: for the Classic Castle category, what do you mean by "style"? Is it limited to the color scheme, or is there more implied?

I will try to explain this...Architect may come in and help out, which is totally good with me.

Style meaning in the manner that the sets from that faction were designed. So that would be in terms of decorations, details, texturing, etc. We are "CLASSIC" :wink: castle.

Bluesecrets is correct. It should be in keeping with the overall design aesthetic of the LEGO faction / sub theme.
