Hi I have no idea if this is inappropriate to post like this or not. If so I apologize!
I was hoping I might be able to make a small request or obtain a commissioned set of minis from you.
My 7 yr old daughter and her girlfriends are going to be starting their first D&D game soon and I wanted to get my hands on a variety of female minis for them. No shops near me sell individual minis and I have no intention of buying the mini sets WOTC sells since they are so poorly set up for what I need. I finally settled on the idea of buying individual Reaper minis for the girls when I came across your work while browsing this forum. I have asked one other person as well. (Drywthharper)
Honestly though, now that I have seen your style - what can be better for an all girl 1st grader adventuring party? I am leaving my request open with him as well tho since I don't know if either of you will accept.

If you like this style of figure, head on over to oversoul-games.com/ and take a look at Dungeon Plungin in the downloads section.
The game itself would be ideal for the kids and the figures are all of a cartoony style. There are several girly type characters among the downloads. It's also worth looking on the fan art section of the community pages, there are several artists who have done figures in a dungeon plungin style including our very own Onemonk (Jim's are uncoloured so the girls could colour their own!!)
Also of possible interest are the pygmys, and hare and tortoise wars figures.
Basically I think Oversoul would be the place I'd go for figures for my (currently 5) daughter when she wanted to dip her finger into role playing!!
Their are some other fan made sets floating around but I can't put my finger on the links at the moment, I'll amend this mail when I can.
lex, if i can, i will tell you to try to avoid minis. I master D&D party with my two sons: the first was when they has 6 & 8 years (geez...4 years ago!) and i started a "reduced" 3.5 mini campaign (using the D&D Basic box for the first 2 levels, then full rules and charachter sheets). That box have standard D&D minis, but they hated them after the first completed dungeon: the LOTR trilogy was fresh in theyr mind, and they asked me "to let them imagine the things that happens", so no maps and no minis. What a satisfaction
We still use the paper minis for dungeon crawling games, but GDR is "miniature less" for my kids.
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.
