In the process of building this micro scene, I knew that I wanted to make it as detail as possible in a small amount of space. This creation was also partially inspired by Blake Baer's fantastic WarScape.
Initially, I was a bit worried about the size limit. But in the end, I was able to fit all this in the required 16x16.
A micro ship.
Here's how I connected it.
The castle itself is rather basic. It took me awhile to come to a point where it look decent enough. Though, I'm sure there is still plenty of room for improvement.
wow nice work with small details. i realy like it :-)

LB Sr. will you participate on the MocAthalon or not? I'd like to know it as soon as possible, so that if you don't have time we still can find another 5th builder ;).

Do you already have a MocAthalon team? If not, you can join us, if you want. Last year was pretty fun with you and a builder who is good in microscale stuff is always awesome as a teammate!
I invited you and would like to see you there ;). Greetings

to improove, I don't have much for you except maybe the textured areas on the ground be brown so that they look like tilled farmland. or you could use yellow to simulate wheat. (promoter micah-) can you check out fade? I think you will like the photo tequnique(- did I spell that right?) it uses. Now off to get dressed.
This is truely pretty. When I saw the thumbnail, I thought for a second the it wasn't Lego. Origonality 4/5. The castle by the sea waterfall gig is classic but a little cliche. Build quality 10/10. I honestly can not think of a way you could have used the pieces you did better. The castle construction is creative, the waterfall is genius, and, well that boat. Its a little boat! I mean it is a microscale boat!! It is so cute! Presentation is a 5/5. The pictures are great. Final score (19/20)
I'm back with scores. This is such an amazing entry, I can't say it enough. Time for Scores. Originality: 4/5 Castles have been done, but I sure haven't seen many of them. Presentation: 5/5 Straight forward and great pictures. Build/Quality: 9/10 The use of pieces is amazing, you're probably tired of hearing about the boat, but THE BOAT! The pine trees, the farmland, and that rock work really make it really clear of what they are supposed to be. The build is also super clean. While I am a fan of studs, but a stud does not do microscale justice, so it SNOT needed. (Oh ho ho, jolly good.) Quite the build for others to go up against, especially with a score to back it up. 18/20
Thanks everyone for all the feedback. I really appreciate it!

Wow senior you are getting very good at these. Love the part usage throughout. Tell your brother to buy a small creator set and get building some alternatives - we need to break his moc block.
Thanks for stopping by Mortal. Yes, I have been telling him to finish his other projects and post them. That might clear up some bricks as well as kindle some new ideas.

That ship is excellent! Also some nice fields and a cool Castle! Keep up the great work ;)!
Allow me to leave a more in depth comment. "Very nice!" hardly sums up this spectacular micro-build (I must have been in a hurry or something)! ;) Some excellent PU here. I particularly like how you built the waterfall, the medium blue at the bottom adds a nice touch. The foamy white lining is very effective, both along the rocks and trailing behind the boat. The BOAT! Very clever use of that shoulder accessory. Your rock-work is also very nice and the use of those grille bricks for fields always does the trick. Oh, and did I mention the castle is lovely too? I guess I felt like coming back and leaving a long comment today, but this definitely deserves it. Well done! :)
