Hi all.

This is my first post in this subforum.  I'd like to share my first Ninjago themed MOC that I made late last year with you, a raid on a shrine (and defending it!).

I have no idea what the plots of Ninjago are - I just used some of the figs I had acquired to make a little scene based on a variety of Asian inspired influences (like Ninjago itself really).  I hadn't bought any Ninjago sets until a few years ago (the Temple of Airjitsu seduced me), and since then I've bought a few more sets - there have been a number of great sets released lately and I quite like the dragons and buildings. 

This MOC started from an attempt to build a roof using the "cheese" slopes - getting the centre roof section done took the longest part of the build!  The rest of it flowed from there and it was an opportunity to use some of the exotic leaf colours I had acquired to see what they looked like in a MOC.  This was built for the "Ninjago" monthly build theme for our LUG. 

Thanks for looking.

Hey Magma!

That roof is something else now, isn't it? Definitely the centerpiece of this one. You've done such a tidy job, it's almost hard to see how it's put together. I like how you used 1x1 tiles on jumper plates to give the "broken shingle" effect here. 
Great work.

Thank you for sharing this excellent build! The mixture of plant construction and the landscaping are great. I like the pathway winding up to the shrine and second the kudos on that roof method.

Have a feature. :classic:

The roof really is a standout. I think you dod a great job, whrre you balanced the busy, "old/weathered/tumble-down" style that is so popular for Castle MOCs with a simpler look; it's detailed, but not distracting from the the actual scene. Great use and positioning of minfigs, too. :thumbup:
