With the microscales, you need to think in terms of a different visual reference: it is the entire scene which becomes important: terrain as much as figures. And you need to exagerate the painting and colors. So it would only be a red smear if you didn’t do that. You should exagerate the yellow horns, the kanji on the back banners, etc.
Microscales also lend themselves to two sorts of games: huge set-ups with sweeping vistas, or small, painstakingly constructed microgames that can be played on a coffee table.
We get slapped around, but we have a good time!
