Hey guys! So me and some friends are entering in the PMC Nether Contest and were having everything done but the castle. We have a outline and everything but we don't know what to make it out of. I want a dark, evil looking castle and I cant decide whether to you obsidian or coal blocks. Any opinions?

Neither. Obsidian and Coal look terrible as primary blocks... I assumed everyone would know this.. :/
My suggestion would be to use the standard netherbrick/stonebrick style and slightly up the ratio of netherbrick. The evil effect should be acheived by the shape of the build (like imposing walls, tall warped towers, claw like battlements etc)

Coal and obby can be used VERY sparingly as decoration.

This is just my opinion of course. Feel free to check out my entry for inspiration. ... um-regnum/

It is castleless as well, but ill be adding one shortly.
Tell me what you think. (there are 0 blocks of obsidian and coal in the map)

Obsidian and coal AND nether bricks will make it look great

Obsidian, because coal blocks catch fire easily.

I like both.
Then again, I like all the textures on blocks.

We are going to add other blocks. I'm just talking about the base block of the wall. Like what we start out with.
