Just so you know I have not given up completely; here are some figs my son asked me to make for the players in the campaign he is running. I've glued them up but I have not cut them out yet, so no pictures I'm afraid.

Just test built the guy at the top with the crossbow. I think I will go back and add fingers (warforged only have three) and let them fold their "hands" around their weapons. P9190026 by cowboyleland, on Flickr.

I think there is room for more than one criticism Kil. The "super macro" picture really shows up my poor cutting. I'm going to break down and buy glasses soon, and maybe resolve to do all my cutting before midnight.
I draw extra long necks so I can fold some of the neck under and create a chin. Looks like this one straightened itself out while I was fiddling with the camera. Stronger creasing next time!
Thanks for the props Eddnic, I'm certainly not going to mess with a string, though VK's thread idea could work.

Once again Vermin King's instincts (see Sept 15 post above) prove reliable. With a little work the warforged will stand up without bases. I still recommend basing for gaming, but for photo's they look good without. Still haven't bought those glasses I keep talking about, as the big white chunk on the axe guys hand will attest.
(edited one day later for spelling, sorry about that!)
Ok... you make an AMAZING set of figures, and you draw attention to the fact that there are a couple cutting issues...
Come on, man! I love your style and I this is INCREDIBLE work. Don't be so hard on yourself. This is like taking a picture of a model in a bikini standing in front of a Ferrari, and then saying, "Look at the gap in her teeth."
You make this kind of figure, this level of excellence, only to berrate yourself? I think you need to realize just what a gift you have! Don't point out your weakness, show off your skill! Which there is obviously a lot there...
(I hope this doesn't sounds condescending. I am just trying to encourage you. Please read it as so).

Game Designer, BETA Tester, Model Designer, Figure Designer... HEY! It's what I do...
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)
