And I'm reading ( today ), in italian, the third book, "Krew elfów" ( "Il Sangue degli Elfi" ) and I have already read the previous two, "Ostatnie życzenie" and "Miecz przeznaczenia" ( "Il Guardiano degli Innocenti" and "La Spada del Destino" ). These are short stories.
Splendid idea - dedicated assasins - silver-headed, highly trained and powered by elemental-magic natural born killers
LOL... well give me some more detailed info on the assasin and who knows what can happen between now and the weekend ;-)
aaaaannnd to go back on topic... im abandoning this guy, my biggest problem is that what I envisioned was a lot different from what came out of my pen. I saw him as dropping grenades from up high... but ow he looks like a gimp footed constipated floating man that took an arrow to the knee whilst holding a Faberge egg... I achieved what i wanted with the other 6 figs... so im happy, maybe ill add the grenade as a configurable weapon...
Okkk... so i took a break from creating various bloody versions of the rocket troopers holding guns for a quick dip into silver haired assassins... sigh.. i still have a lot to learn about the back of heals...

I am not much of an artist, but I seem to have a knack for doing backs, maybe because I don't sweat the details too much. Anyway I would suggest that this fig shouldn't be up on his toes with both feet. I would let the left foot be planted firmly on the ground. Then the right foot you could show less of the sole near the toe and more of the side of the boot. Jim always suggested having figures flat footed on the ground and I sure felt he knew what he was talking about when I did all those backs for Hoard 92.
On the other hand, maybe it's the herd that is crazy.
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)

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.
