After seeing the huge Megaton Recycler (http://cardboard-warriors.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=industrynews&action=display&thread=2867) I thought about trying to paint over paper models in heavy cardstock, but never got around to do it. Did you have to use some kind of sealant before painting?
Great job! It's good to see different styles of paper miniatures and interesting to see paper used as a sculpting material instead of just a modeling form. More like forming the paper to shape and less like paper cut outs. I'd love to hear about you process in making this miniature. How big is it? Do you start with patterns? What glue do you use?
Any gamers in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, USA?
This is on par with Tirick's 3D figurine madness (though I think, Tirick is just one micro-inch more insane, cause he wants his minis to be POSABLE ;D). As WaffleM mentioned, totally different paradigm of paper modeling. It has a lot to do with the big scale question: when do you have to turn to full-detailed 3D bossies, when will flat paper lose its magic ? The borderline could be thin here ... .
This mini is an example, that you can build just EVERYTHING out of sturdy paper. Great.
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)

wyvern: Nah, just rewatched the 1931 Universal "Dracula" movies (the Lugosi one and the Spanish version)
