I've been working on Super Heroes and Robots lately, but I was sorting through my incomplete works and found this team again. Scaling back my original ambitions a bit, I've begun working on the mummy again.
My gaming group stopped playing Blood Bowl and that took a lot of steam out the driving force for this project. Then I've only recently gotten my scanner to work again. At this point I just want to see it though, so all this work wasn't wasted. My current goal is to have a red and blue team finished in time for submitting to the June Horde.
Unfortunately, I constantly get distracted with cool new ideas and start them before I finish existing projects. This year I'm making an effort to complete projects that have long been neglected.

At this time I am not working on any other teams. It's hard enough for me to find the time and ambition to finish this one. The local Blood Bowl league fizzed out and I'm currently DM'ing a D&D campaign as well as rekindled my City Of Heroes addiction, on top of work, the kids, and the wife.
I spent quite a few hour working on this project and it would all be for nothing if I didn't finish and release it, so that's what is driving me at the moment.
That being said, if people were actually to get some use out of these it may inspire me to work on additional teams in the future.
I've also had some thoughts of an undead themed chess set...

Thanks. The Mummy was a lot of work. Jim never made any mummy models for the undead line, so I had to start from scratch. I based him on the old Heroquest Mummy, as it is hands down my favorite Mummy miniature.
Great looking team. Nice work on the mummies - must have taken quite a bit of time to do all those bandages.
I painted a couple of skeletons a while back for my undead BB team, the Midnight Maniacs. I planned for the team to have purple and dark grey as their team colors. I never got around to finish more than the skeletons, since it is not one of my most used teams - i prefer humans or wood elves. But at least with this set i can field a complete "painted" team
Looking forward to see more teams from you. Any plans on making a skaven/ratmen team for instance?
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.
