Presenting Hecklemeyer & Styx.
" I'm a joker,
I'm a croaker,
I get my heckles on the stage.
I'm a chancer,
I'm a prancer,
I'm a nec-ro-mancer,
Reanimatin’ the deranged.
I'm a joker,
I'm a choker,
I'm a life-re-voker,
Tellin’ jokes beyond the grave.
W-o-o-o h-o-o-o! "
I really enjoyed painting this mini, I love the sculpting on it! I was inspired by another Joker for the colour scheme......
Thanks for looking!

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.
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.

Some surprises pop out if the ground.
door is open but no one is home. . . Maybe check the other side of the fence
