These are cool, and a nice start to a cool human army.
I wouldn't make them limited however, it's a waste to make them, then take them down. They are digital, so just keep them up and make them previews for a larger commercial set in the future. I am of the camp that nothing should be wasted. JIM
Absolutely not a criticism. Your works improves from day to day. At present I would buy your sets.
But the orc's head is better, imho, in front of enemies ( for terrify them ). idem about battle standard.
the profile pose ( body and, firstly face ) is very good for figures that aim and have an arm forward and one back for their weapons ( archers, pikemen, few advancing/skirmish poses ... ), in in other cases body and face in front or body in front e face in 3/4 make better three-dimensionality and make more visually beautiful the play.

Your 3/4 face is not at all bad! This is a very strong figure. Alexander Nevski has always been one of my favorite movies, even though it seems a bit dated now. Your Paladin Order would make a good stand in for the Teutonic Knights! I'm looking forward to the time when you tackle some mounted versions.
Have fun! Steve

About the last one, i'm worried about the right shoulder: it seems to me that you should choose if the arm is protruded forward or backward and adjust the shoulder armor consequently... right now he "change pose" from back to front.... <edit> it will apply also to the sword "handle": right now it is on the background in both the sides...
Other than this, it is a great figure as all the others.
Ok...one step beyond and before I walk further, here is the first version of the mounted paladin... some issues are not yet set (3/4 or profile torso) and I need comments on the horse and barding to see if I am in a right direction... Hope you don't mind if I constanly ask for your advice :-[

I usually don't nitpick on this forum, but I wanted to let you know what has just got to my attention. On the horse tail and on the horse's hide you've used the exact same pattern/texture as anywhere else on the figure. There are easy tricks to get hair done. Jabbro has a tutorial on this site somewhere. But it could be that after it is printed the texture is not that noticeably... silky, textile like with the folds. I hope I make sense. I'm still missing shadows on the white robes.
If you get the 3/4 view figured out then you are on the right path to perfect. And congrats to your very own board
I basically adapted another tutorial to my needs. It is Photoshop specific.
Basically the layering options can be done in any program. The trick is the fibers of hair. I use grass blade brushes for this. (Single hair, use some scattering techniques and spray). It gets the job done fairly fast.

it's not back... I just bring it today... I have a second computer but it's veeery old and veeery slow. I can only make the draft of my miniatures on it... if I try to do more it'll explode (I guess...I bought it in 2001...)
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)
