The year is 2020. Mankind has almost destroyed itself. The seas are so polluted that only primitive bacteria can live. The polar ice caps are gone. The dirty air has drastically increased extinction rates. A Great War has torn apart civilization. Now, a community of refugees is confined to a shining silver climate-controlled tower overlooking the remains of their former city.Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image Posted ImageGallery with some more pics

Very intriguing. I've always been somewhat fond of mini models, and you've done a great job with this piece, despite its size. I'd like to see and hear more about this. 8/10 from me

Optimistic much, Dralcax? :PStill, this is quite the interesting little microscale creation. The greebling of the black city section looks very industrial, as I'm sure you were going for, although I'm a bit purplexed as to what the askew Exo-Force scope piece represents. Regardless, the tower is also nice, although the silver clashes a bit. I'd also suggest adding a few pieces on the otherwise barren grey surrounding area.Overall, this is a nice little MOC, for a genre I don't see too often. Props to you for that.~B~

That askew part is the burnt-out remains of a wrecked tower. Also, it's meant to be barren. The part shown is supposed to be all that's left.

I really like looking at microscale models, and this one is a very nice one at that. I love the askew tower and how you were easily able to attach it. I also love the amount of small details confined into this tiny little thing. It's very nice how you were able to do all of that.

Thanks! I built the silver/light grey tower, and thought it would look cool in a whole microscale scene. I then made the base, put on the tower, then stuck on all the oddly-shaped small black bits I could find. I thought the Exo-Force bit looked like a burned-out tower, but it was almost as high as the other tower, so I decided to make it askew. I actually had the idea of askew parts from the beginning, but everything else was so short, it wasn't necessary until then.

That's cool. The slanted tower is amazing. Does the thing use all "legal connections"? If it does, it should be buildable in LEGO Digital Designer. You could probably modify it, and add some more cool expansions to it.

Well, assuming technic hole + stud is a legal connection.

I'm fairly certain it is. I might be wrong though. That's awesome that you didn't have to "cheat" or anything. :P

Yeah, I didn't really have "cheating" in mind, more blocky just makes it more industrial, so I decided that illegal connections weren't really necessary.
