Jim has given me permission to list my releases in my boards here in his forums as well as on my site so here is my first set of modern troops with assault rifles. This is the first of 4 sets with assault rifles. you get 10 figure poses, 16 color options and 2 weapons. I have around 50 different guns that I have vectored up so look forward to some more modern figures with a nice assortment of weapons.
Slick, they are very beautiful. I have only a small critic, just to be nitpicking... and it is based just on the image, not by a real print...
... anyway, seems to me that the "crotch protection" (sorry, i don't have better words) stands up too much: it is "clear", shining (as it have some higlight on it) and surrounded by a darker area... it even seems to cast shadows to the thighs. Being in the center of the figure, it is the first thing that hits my eyes, taling out the "attention" from the weapon or the face. If you plan some new draw, i'd tone it down a bit, and instead making the weapon and right arm contour a bit more thick, maybe also casting shadow on the belly part: this should "raise" the arm and the rifle.
This all is just to be constructive.
--edit-- this is an ugly mod to the image, just to show what i mean: I have just added a black line around the weapons and right arm, on a 50% transparent layer, and a blob of camo green to make that thing less bright.
Awesome Job on the modifications. I think its the image and camo I chose that makes the groin armor stand out a little but with offering 16 colors there is always going to be one or two that look wonkie. The reason I picked that was for the pattern (its close to a Russian camo pattern) and it fit with the eastern weapons. As to a shadow under the weapon arm. I had one but several of my weapons are bullpup and when the mag hung into the shadow it just made the figures look weird.
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)
