Micro Scale

When I started designing SotA themed buildings and player housing, one of the first comments I would get from people was ‘when are you going to build a whole city’. Well, given that, at minifig scale, it would cost me well over a Lord of the Manor’s backing to build the scores of buildings required for a town like Owls Head, I decided to design micro/mini-scale versions of all the buildings in the game.

Microscale (sometimes called miniscale) is a style of Lego design in which buildings and landscape are represented significantly smaller than the standard 1:48 minifig scale. As opposed to the minifig scale in which buildings are sized for the standard Lego minifig, microscale may use only a handful of pieces to represent a building. In this technique, the focus on use of creative use of pieces.

This page presents the majority of the player housing options (in-game pictures taken from Forsaken Virtues) along with their microscale Lego version. Using these as elements, I have made a mockup of OwlsHead’s city district.
