The Battles category will be limited to exterior battles with a minimum of ten figures on each of two or more factions.
You can have fighting on battlements, attacking a tower, etc, but most action should be outdoors. We do not want to compete with the Castle Room Interior category.

Sorry for asking again, but this wasn't answered at first. and now it's two pages ago.
As in the siege category of last year, we prefer to have it be one moment in time that is captured from three different angles. It will be too hard to grade if each shot changes the number and location of figures.
when I want to join in more categories may I build one MOC and take photos and than use that bricks for another one?
Of course this is fine. Making different creations from the same bricks is what LEGO is about.
Does that mean that only stickers that resemble official torsos and shields are ok or can we have our own designs?
You can have your own designs. Make sure to do a nice job on cutting and pasting. Bad customs in other categories can hurt your grade.
And occasional custom accessory; would this sword be ok for example?
That would be fine for one soldier.
Are non faction battles allowed? Ie. scattered groups of knights and factions + peasants trying to fend off a zombie horde.
That sounds like a classic human vs bad guy battle to me. So yes, that would be ok.
So when are we going to see some entries?
