Because of:

race-based I mean One with more than two of the same creature in the castle. Two is fine, if they are much different creatures.

Pretty much this.

May maybe not count for undead and demons and probably humans, who where always their own faction, who kind of fulfill both versions IMO.

I prefer race based towns, where it makes sense.
Like we know, that M&M world was inspired by AD&D.
So some races are self-sufficient and closed, so their own towns are expected instead of gathering them all in one soup.

Like humans, elves, dwarves, lizardmen, dark elves must have their racial common lineup with some differences like other levels for same type of troops. For example, humans have knights on horses and should have knights on gryphons, lizards will have lizards on velociraptors, dark elves will have driders, dwarves will ride on bears.

But there is little sence to make separate towns for cyclops, minotaurs, medusas, halflings. Minotaurs and medusas couldn't have complicated society or civilization. And halflings are not war race, it's hard to imagine mounted halflings (like riding on pigs).

So there are towns for races with civilization, culture and society, and mix for non-socialized creatures.

Famous Hero
Warlord of the sea

I still stands on the ideal would be to combine both races and themes. And allow me to illustrate it, using the stronghold faction as an exsample:
We have seven units:
Orc warrior
Goblin cockatrice rider
Orc Shaman

See, that would be little to no doubts about this faction being based in the concept of might, as well as brutal savage barbarians native to harsh badlands. However, some races is present in multiple units, such as the orc warrior and the orc shaman. As they are very different units, there is no problems of having them being the same race, and the choice of having them both being orcs makes more sense in terms of the theme than having fx the shaman being a human just because there is already another orc.
