Laughing and playing in the streets, crying and wanting their mommy, doing chores or working as an apprentice. What this release brings you is children. From babies to toddlers to children to teenagers, this release has it all.
Fourteen pieces ranging from a woman holding a baby to a couple of toddlers, children ranging in ages, preteens, and teenagers capable of helping with the chores or working as apprentices. Everything a thriving town or farmstead needs to continue growing. Young people of all shapes and sizes.
Dryw, these are amazing. Just the other day, I was lamenting not having a mother holding a baby. And I routinely need a stable boy to care for the PCs horses.
Speaking of horses, you did such an awesome job with those camels, that I'd love to see a riding horse and/or a warhorse from you. Xtea's big Belgian is beautiful, but it's harnessed to pull, rather than ride. Also I'd love to see horses in your style.
It's easy to put paper minis on horseback by simply cutting a small slot on the horse's back, and another at the bottom center of the mini. I've done this to mount Orcs on Dire Wolves, and it worked brilliantly. When your rider is unhorsed or dismounts, you just pop her back into her base. I'll take a picture tonight and post it.

Afet, I did the same thing with various One Monk armored warriors and One Monk's Nightmare. I actually ran off two of each figure, one for on-foot, and cut the black base tab off of the second figure and slotted them to mount them on the Nightmares (also slotted). Great minds think alike.
I tried horses and they came out terribly. I tried monsters and they came out terribly (hooray for One Monk monsters). I was surprised at how well the camels came out. I think I'll stick to people and character races for now.

okumarts, My answer for now is that my wife waves her magic wand and casts a magic spell way to complicated for my simple self to understand. She says she will try to write an explanation of her spellcasting technique and send it to you as a message in the next day or so.

Oh, love your stuff, visited your web site when you first posted.
Oh, and my wife said that the image is actually a screen shot of the PDF inserted via the image tag (whatever that means), if that's any help.
Thanks! This was just what I was looking for. I needed the Mom & Baby and the Boy on the Stick Horse last session!
But most Minis come with varied adults, but forget the kids. Historically peasants had large families because 1/2 their brood never reached adulthood. So any similar setting needs kids running about all over the place!
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.
