Last night I was able to sit down and ink up two of the characters for Buck's request. I have a new light board. Using that and taking into account the advise I have received, I think I have managed to improve my inking quite a bit. I needed no editing after scanning and very little cleanup.
The other one I have inked is the serving wench. I'll get to her later. Maybe tonight I'll get to design and ink two more.

This model worked great tonight as a paper stand in for WHQ's imperial noble. We do have the original metal mini, but since we've been using paper for monsters, I have been looking for appropiate or semi appropiate paper minis and this one fill the bill quite nicely.

I am glad that everyone has enjoined the noble. I think I am getting the hang of the new style. Unfortunately I had to prepare for a presentation this Friday so I had very little spare time today, but I did manage to finish the wench. Don't worry Abbadon, I think she is the type you are looking for.
I have not really tried other genres. If I finish these before it closes, I'll have to do something horde themed. I was thinking Sci-Fi.
Cool. Now that I am doing things on a different scale, I can capture a bit more personality and not just a static face. This helps a lot.
Buck, here is the third main character. I have one extra inked, and I'll start on him next. Tonight I'll try and design the other two NPCs, but I cannot guarantee that I'll have all three done by Friday.
This one is a bit stooped over, so he is shorter. I kindda modeled him after a Thieves World character of the same occupation.
Once again, Jabbro, I don' t know how to thank you! These figures all look awesome! I'll be printing and cutting out tonight along with the last of my tavern as well. (I'm using Fat Dragon's Dragonshire Interiors to make the tavern where the big fight is gonna take place!)
I love the detail on the bartender - especially the dagger in the back of his boot!
Well Jabbro, you'll be happy to know that your mini's were a huge success! The tavern fight ended up being a lot of fun! The players moved quickly to defend the bartender (Gotta keep the drinks coming...) and were extremely dismayed at the death of the serving wench! More than a couple of the commoners met an untimely death as well.
Thank you again for all the time you put into the figures for this. Hopefully a lot of the other people on the board will get some use out of them as well! Here are a few photos from the session last night. Enojy!
Vermin King: Not the style you are looking for, but try a search for 'paper theatre' or 'paper theater', and you will find a few pages of epinal figures. Not many, but I know there are a few

shep: Does anyone know where to find decent individual minis of late Roman Republic era civilians? From senator to slave, every mini would be great, as long as they are not legionaires or generals or other military (Praetorian Guard and Roman Vigiles excluded)

chiefasaur: Sweet tutorial! Now I know how to make paper minis ;P

oldschooldm: Yup. More power to anyone who tries it. It will only whet the appetite for people who want paper minis that were designed to be paper minis. :-) Fronts and Backs FOREVER! :-) [... it's bait, don't bite it! ... ]

cowboyleland: Now I have seen it. It doesn't advance our hobby, but anyone with half a brain who wanted 2nd rate figures could easily figure this out for themselves so I guess he isn't doing any harm.
