Outside the building categories that I actually follow, I’ll generally take a castle build over a space build (or infinity number of town builds) any day of the week. So the annual Collosal Castle Contest going on over at Classic-Castle.com certainly offers much that is pleasing the eyes.
However, in the run-up to this event it seems like a couple of new-ish TROPES have snuck into the Castle Community Consciousness over the past few months, and builders are kinda copying each-other. And this season’s fashions? I call them No-Parallel-Lines Rickety Tudor and Medieval Mega-Greebles. And while Crow’s Nest above by David Hensel utilizes both, it thankfully adds something extra through its clever incorporation of snow effects.
