Element Experimentation: Microscale Tree

Receiving bricks is always an interesting experience. Lately I have received quite a few new bricks, both from orders where I have chosen the pieces, but also a number of random pieces which, in many cases, I have no idea what to do with. And even for some of the ordered elements I’m still not…

Rounded Office Building

This was sort of an exercise in using organic shapes for a building. Though complicated, the concave surfaces and the three pronged shape were manageable. Finishing up the top by fitting a roof was a whole different matter though, and I’m not actually very happy with how it turned out. Ok, but not great. Still,…

Rural Landscape

Recently, Rebrick hosted a contest called ‘Help Decorate the LEGO House!’ – a contest where the prize was, among other things, to have your build displayed at LEGO House for 1 year! The contest had two themes: minifigures and nature. Seeing as I love building nature, this contest felt like a pretty good fit and…

The Foothills

Landscapes is one of my favourite things to build in Lego which is why I tend to gravitate towards microscale builds, as you can create larger landscapes with fewer pieces. Of course, with smaller scale there is also a loss in detail, so there is a balance to be struck. This build I was testing…

Micro Cottages

I really like building micro scale landscapes, and most of the time my focus is on the nature part of a build – how to make it look natural and organic. Most of the time, however, nature builds center around something, often something man made. For this reason I decided to do some experimentation with…

The Ascent

A micro landscape build inspired by the Swiss alps which I had the privilege to do some hiking in a while ago. I was fascinated by the change in vegetation with altitude and I thought it’d make a nice theme for a build. The effect is, of course, greatly exaggerated in this build for aesthetic…

Ninja Horn Tree

Micro scale trees are something I really like building, and I’m always looking for new designs in order to get some variety in my micro landscapes. While tinkering a bit with new tree designs I came up with this new design, which consists of ninja horns stuffed into a flotation devices. It’s a pretty odd…
