I haven't tried photo paper. Cardstock seems a bit heavy. I haven't done these yet, but on another one of his creatures, heavy copy paper seemed a bit thin, so I just glued the paper to another page of the same thickness and it came out well. I'm not sure if the added strength was more from the added paper, or from the glue layer, but it worked well.
There are no strangers in this world,only people I haven't embarrassed ... yet!

I use matt photo paper for everything excet buildings and vehicles, easy to fold like paper and a little tougher. Gloss photo is even tougher, but I don't like the shine. To make them more durable, a spray with acrylic varnish is excellent, gives the minis a 'plastic' feel. I use the one from games workshop, it's expensive, but lasts for ages. But any acrylic varnish is great. As for glue.....UHU gluestick for laminating e.g. sticking the front and back together and tacky PVA for everything else, you don't realise how good this stuff is until you try it. Looks just like normal white glue but dries much faster and has a lot less water in it. Ednic is a design genius
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)
