Crazy Pete held up the glimmering nugget, letting the sunlight reflect off it. He turned it around and around in his fingers, admiring it from every angle. He even, yes, took a little nibble - with his good tooth, mind you.
"It's GOLD!" he shouted to the sky. "YAAAHOOO!! GOLD! It looks like ol' Pete's luck is finally changin' fer the better!"
He then began a happy jig, which ended when he stumbled over his own boot and fell into a cactus patch.
Figure is from Reaper's Chronoscope line, and was a gift from Gina for Christmas. The cactus are from a boxed set by Pegasus hobbies. Base is a Reaper 2" round base with a ledge built up on it out of Green Stuff - under the basing grit, it's not as obvious in these pictures, but Pete is standing atop a croissant-shaped bit of elevated terrain to raise him visually above the level of the cacti.
