The 1x1x2/3 slopes would be ideal for making waves, etc.: and or the 1x2 options. Along with some blue tiles you could make some great waves: Obviously, if you don't want them breaking, keep the white fronts blue. Also, if you have some Navy blue tiles you can create currents of colder water - if you've ever watched large bodies of water you'll notice ...

Here is my attempt on a 6x6 plate. I built only one wall for the image clarity, but maybe you'd prefer one opposite wall as well. If you don't have the tile with the pillow, replace it with a 1 x 2 slope or something. Construction details if it's not clear enough:

As you say, the figures used in the LEGO Games are called Micro-figures - these appear to be based on LEGO Part 90398 - Minifig Trophy Statuette, while Marcus refers to them as "Tiny Figures" in his video, the press release that is talked about on most of the sites calls them "micro-figures" as well - I guess LEGO can't call them "Nano-Figures" as that would ...

In the blog of Tom Aplhin he mentions regarding Microscale Steve Oakes, a long-time LEGO builder in Seattle area started a tradition 4 years ago to re-create the BrickCon Public Convention at a smaller scale. His display is called “Micro BrickCon” (Edit: The conversation between Tom and myself was in a loud room with lots of activity. He is correct about ...

I suggest calling them "trophy figures". Here is my reasoning: First, we need to understand a key term: Microscale. In Lego terms, microscale means anything smaller than minifig scale. Here is the definition from the Lego MBA Designer Handbook: Kit 2 - Microbuild Designer: By that definition, both the traditional "microfig" found in the games and a few ...

Here is my first take on a graveyard. The graves aren't too great, as the fence is what I wanted to show all along. In case it's not obvious, it's attached to a Brick 1 x 1 with Stud on One Side and then it's jumper-plate-jumper-plate-tile. Unfortunately, that doesn't actually work1 (that's one of the drawbacks of LDraw modeling, it won't tell you) So if ...

I went with the following set up - note that as the microfig is two bricks high, that means it's actually three studs long: Castle Bedroom with bedside candle Castle Bedroom with bedside candle (LDraw)

Try using combos of Trans-clear and Trans-blue studs to make a nice, clear foaming water affect. Studs can be bought in extreme masses on Bricklink for like, 1¢. So there's no trouble.

These three images are from BrickCon 2016. I've rearranged certain portions of this moc to make a 4 foot square section of Emerald City Comic Con 2016. It's on flickrvid ECCC This image is from BrickCon 2014 and was taken the night before the public viewing... It was almost set up. Once the other builders added their mocs, it was.

There's also a mini hogwarts express: And you probably can count the Liberty Statue in the Skyline factory set: Most other minis are indeed from Star Wars, but I'm not sure which ones have bigger versions.

Here is David Lee using transparent bricks to create nice waves Here is Mark of Falworth using another technique involving loose bricks of different colors.
