You say that it should include two unique armies, does that mean we shouldn't use official factions?
Official factions are fine. We want two separate factions in the battle.
For the Vehicles category, would a sort of fantasy/steampunk design be alright, or should we stick with more traditional vehicles?
No. We are looking for traditional vehicles. Medieval machines (like the previous Da Vinci category) should be submitted in the miscellaneous category.
For the Castle Room Interiors category, is there a limit on the rooms we can stack on top of each other - say for a tower interior?
You may stack rooms on top of each other. Keep in mind that rooms need to be connected to each other. An example of stacked rooms could be a storage room with a dungeon under it which is connected by an open pit. Creating large numbers of rooms is less desirable than creating several highly detailed rooms.
How, may I ask, was the Viking set donated? Were you using your abassadorial powers, or has the C3IV fallen under LEGO's ever-watching gaze?
LEGO has kindly donated prizes to every Colossal Castle Contest! Check out some of their previous donations: http://www.classic-castle.com/events/co ... rizes.html
Does the "Castle Fortification" category have to be on CCC scale, or can it be larger? It specifically mentions CCC walls, making it a bit confusing.
Creations definitely can be larger. A CCC wall is only one example. As usual, creative building techniques are more important than the size of your wall, tower, or keep.
The contest looks great, the bridge category is especially unique. Any specific reason it was created?
We try to have prizes match the category and vice versa. At the same time, a few new categories are introduced each year. Instead of another Outpost category, we thought why not make a bridge category for a set with a rope bridge
Now, I have one question. Why is the castle interior category increased to 2 32x32 baseplates? I loved seeing how people made castle living spaces with only 16x16 to go on. Why the big step up?
Many fans found the old size requirements too limiting. You do not have to build to the full extent of those baseplates. We welcome smaller rooms. There can also be multiple rooms which may need the extra space.
If you are building a village and you have quite a few structures but one of them has been posted once before, will it still be excepted?
We probably will not accept it. You may PM an admin for consideration and note when the creation was first posted. As a general rule, we do not accept creations posted online before November 1st of this year.
Good question. I was thinking of making a tower that could either be part of a castle or even stand alone & either way be functional. But I specifically didn't want to conform to the CCC standard ... is that ok ?
