Putting the buildings on bases would also even things out a bit. 

 

A base of one layer of Hirst blocks would be a thought. Even stone piers would work. Either would be quite authentic. Timber buildings set on stone last longer and it prevents rot.

That's a very good point. I have a few more of these, so that's a possibility.

      About this project
      Why another tabletop terrain project? 
      To give you an entire village-in-a-box!  A unique design, that gives the illusion of tiled roofs, but where you can easily balance your precious miniatures!  Easy to store - can be assembled and disassembled over and over! Quick to assemble - no use of glue is required!  Simple to use - the MDF surface reacts well to many types of paint!   What you get in the box 
      16 fantasy buildings (4 of each type, see below)  Optional extra height for 8 buildings  Optional extra tall "wizards tower"  Assembly & painting guidelines Type 1: The Roaring Lions 
      The tallest building in the Dread Streets - at least if no one nearby dares add another store! 
      Type 2: The Twin Dragons  
      The wary citizens of the Dread Streets make scarecrows of their houses - but there are no crows, only neighbors with thieving fingers... 
      Type 3: The Lucky Seahorses 
      The shape of a seahorse is said to bring luck in the Dread Streets. Nothing else does... 
      Type 4: The Firebreathers  
      Considered a dire and foreboding shape - since gutter water is often sprayed from the mouths of the Firebreathers onto the onlookers!
      "The Wizards Tower" 
      Wizards are not to be trusted, and are required by the law of the Dread Streets to live at least two stories above ground level.

      I bought the Golden crackle paste medium instead of going out to buy the GW crackle paint... but so far no crackles in my test swatches. I'm hoping some people here have tried Golden before and have any tips. Do I need a base coat? Glue on the bottom? Thicker layers? Does it need the full 3 days to dry & cure even for small terrain pieces?
       
      I'm hoping to be able to just use what I already have, but I might be able to buy some Agrellan earth this weekend if the Golden doesn't work. Or if there are any good crackle paints for a dry desert texture I could find at Joann's or Michael's or Blick.
       
      Thanks! :)

      ...and finishing it in 10 days or less.
       
      And you're all invited to come along for the ride. Audience participation is welcome and encouraged, just don't throw anything, please.
      (Unless it's money)
       
      While on the hangouts last night, I had an idea for a new project, and then started to laugh. When asked what was so funny, I said that I had just thought of a cool idea for a vignette for Reapercon, but it was too bad it's only a little over a week away. Some of the helpful folks there encouraged me to 'go for it'. I laughed.
       
      But I started thinking about it.
       
      Then I really started to think about it; I got out some stuff, and made a crude  mock-up sketch. Then I thought about it some more.
       
      ....and now I think I'm going to do it. It's not like all of my other projects are already finished, right? Oh wait....
       
      So, when I hobby, I usually have a couple different things going at one time, so that I can work on something else while i'm waiting for paint/glue/putty/whatever to dry. I was converting this fellow:
      http://www.reapermini.com/Miniatures/Bones/latest/77408
      when the idea hit me.
       
      So, what I'm thinking is a scene where the evil spell caster is summoning up some unholy thing from the pit for some evil shenanigans.
       
      Mock up:

       
      The big scary monster is not what I'm going to use; it's just a place holder. The summoning portal will be in the ground. What I'm thinking for the monster is that less is more; just an arm and top of the head, or some tentacles or something just starting to rise up out of the portal.
      What do you think?
       
      Also, here's the guy I converted:

       
      Since he was the chap that inspired this idea, I was going to use him as the star, (and I still might), but I was wondering if the calm pose works alright ( I imagine all the chanting, bloodletting and so on has concluded and he's just waiting for his minion to come forth ), or if a more action-y pose (arms spread, holding a staff/sword/something over the head, something like that) would be better.
       
      Well, what do you think?

      I am trying to break out of my lurker mode and post more.  I have many excuses for my silence the last few months, one of which is my lack of a good photo set up.  So I decided to just take crummy phone photos with the scant natural light angling in the windows across the room.  I actually like the results. Especially since you can't see a lot of my poor painting as well.
       

       
      approaching the the hill from the pumpkin patch...
       

       

       
      Some surprises pop out if the ground.
       

       
      door is open but no one is home. . .  Maybe check the other side of the fence
       

       
      BOO
