I've one question a wall is 20 bricks tal, but how many bricks wide?
I have been thinking about this...
I was trying to give a general height so we don't have absurd scale issues. I came up with 20 as a comprimise between realistic scale (in reality they could be MUCH taller) and what is reasonably achievable in LEGO bricks. My thought was it would be 20 bricks to the top of the wall (so battlements or whatever might start somewhere below that). However, it is not a hard and fast number, as variation in an actual castle wall (depending on the terrain etc) would vary and because as I have said, the main thing I was attempting to prevent was giant variations in scale. If the wall is 18 bricks tall or 22 bricks tall, I think that is just fine. I just want to avoid having one wall be 10 bricks tall and another be 60 brick tall attached to a pair of towers right next to each other on the build plans.
Same thing for thickness, we want people to use their own judgements as to what will make sense with a 20 stud tall wall for the area they are building. I anticipate this will be less of an issue than height so we am leaving it up to the builder's own tastse.
Just for your own reference, I think the walls I will make for the great gatehouse will likely be between 3-5 studs thick.
