I'm not suggesting that you can't have anything fantasy(LOTR, etc.), nor am I saying it has to be historically accurate. It just seems like a no-brainer to me, that a castle/medieval battle scene would take place on land of some sort.
My apologies for trying to help you.
It is fine. The new categories always need to be clarified by the admins. Some individual entries are judged by admins on which category they best belong in. A majority of entries easily fit in the category requirements. Not surprisingly, these entries often win.
What would siege equipment on its own be categorized as? say if it was in storage, or is being towed, or is fortification
If it is being towed that could fall in the vehicles category. Otherwise a siege engine on its own would go in miscellaneous. You could also include it in a battles category or in a siege workshop inside a castle.
For the custom fig category, what about accessories and WIPs (helms, shields, weapons etc.) we have posted before Nov. 1? If these accessories are refined and tailored for the new fig, will that be allowed?
We are concerned about the entire figure. If you made a custom weapon or helmet, you could include that in your new figure.
I'm very sorry to add to the questions, but would I be able to use a castle which contains two sections I have posted before (modified again), namely my gatehouse and tower "bridge"?
This would not be allowed unless new creations were highly different from the old ones. We want new creations, not modified creations.
