Adding a bluff to Micropolis, a Mini Modular City.
About this creation
Matt, a member of TwinLUG, came up with the hollow base. Micropolis bases are a plate and a brick and a plate thick. I had been building a pretty thick slab for the base. I could stand on them. Matt's stripped down version works just as well and saves a bunch of bricks. The nice thing about small modules is they don't take up a lot of pieces. Start building a dozen and zoom there goes all of something or another.
Just a few plates and bricks. Using the longer Technic brick on the side, instead of the 1x2 Technic brick with one hole, adds a extra bit of support. I have more of those, so, yay.
I used two LURPs on one module and one BURP on the other. They fill up a lot of space at a lower cost than plain bricks and slopes.
I just added more slopes and bricks to build them up to the 12 and 1/3 third brick high stack. It's 12 bricks without the grass. That about 90 to 100 scale feet high. All sorts of possibilities are now available. A train tunnel, secret lair's of super villians which are possibly exploding, bottomless pits, headquarters of super secret government organization which are also possiblitliy exploding, crashed space ships deeply gouged into the earth. Maybe even the Batcave or the lair of The Phantom. I couldn't resist putting the skull on one cliff face. Micropolis, it's the sort of town that would have a tattoo on it's backside. A nice one, but one that's sure to be trouble.
Who told you about that tatoo? And I am NOT trouble... ok, maybe I am... anyway. I'd love to see a few of the modules together. This cliff face has a very nice, organic feel to it. Hope you add a few more modules to this and show us what they look like as a finished piece. ~ chris.

Good MOC , but the multi-colour bit is rather jarring. 4/5.
MC - Those colored bits are the bases that are covered up then all the other bases are connected together. The colored bits show only on the very edge of the city when completed. We were talking about caps to cover them up and we decided that they look ok as is. None of us ever thought they were jarring, but in fact the look reminded us of our favorite bricks. To each his own, huh. see ya. garth
