We know a lot of you aren't very enthousiastic about the use of AoE3's Fort models to represent medieval Castles in K&B. Nor are we, to be frank. The elephant in this particular room is of course the very obvious presence of cannons on the Forts' towers, something we've attempted to fix in K&B by retexturing them, but obviously that wasn't much of a solution, and did little to fix the underlying issue. However, we now believe to have fixed it properly:
Yes, it's a new model. Its primary feature are the wooden hoardings, cunningly shaped so as to completely hide the cannons from sight, and thus make the Castle look significantly more medieval. However, since we needed a new model, we figured we might as well add some proper parapets to the walls, and for no particular reason we also added the tower/balcony arrangement at the back. Just a note: The textures are still work in progress. The texture of the Castle itself hasn't been altered much since adding the attachment, something we do intend to fix. Oh, and similar setups for the Middle Eastern Castle, as well as the new ones for the Quintessence, are also underway.

K&B salutes... super7700, for evidently being very good at linking K&B's religions to their appropriate icons.
K&B refutes... Ukraine's president Viktor Yanukovich. Not content with being a mere puppet of Vladimir Putin, his stubbornness now literally causes the destruction of Kiev...
