You might have seen this temple before in my first entry of the TOR III (the dramatic sculpture incident).
I heavely relied on a raised baseplate for the temple architecture, overall it's a pretty simple creation.
Some people really don't like the use of raised baseplates, burps and lurps while I think they're perfect when you don't have a lot of parts to spare, like I do, I'm currently in some sort of crisis, an old/new Gray crisis, I have too few of either to build something of decent size and I hate to combine them :pir_bawling: .

The stone kahuka head was simply copied from the official Islander sets.

This is awesome!  Excellent use of the raised baseplate.   I really like the sculpture.  It's nice to see more Islander MOCs.

Nice! :thumbup: . I agree, the raised baseplate fits nicely in with the whole temple feel :classic: .

the piramidal design it's great! I feel that has a great mix between the sphinx and a pyramid, but with an islander flavor!

Very nice! I like the Pyramid Design of the temple. But obviously, the Redcoats would take their sabres and slice through the wooden bars of their confinement, we all know that! :wink:

Nice one! :thumbup:

I feel mixing the light greys is OK, but the dark ones differ too much for a clean look. But when making rocky or stone things, does it really matter that much....?
Why do you need TLC to make sets for you, all you really need is parts...be creative!

I love it how your building style tries to reflect the classic 90s style official sets - no silly SNOTting or overuse of tiles. Just good, well done, creative models. Love your imperial port ! Wow !
