I'm working on some battle suits and other models for my 15mm gaming, most of the currently available vehicle models are too fiddly at this scale (fine if you are only building one) and there aren't many quality 15mm vehicles out there other than mech attack, so I've come up with a compromise, 2.5 D model with some extra 'decoupage' style detailing to give depth, the torso and head are all extra layers to add a bit of depth. It's more obvious in the flesh than in the photo. The colouring and weapons are intended to make them compatible with terra force.

When you glue the body together you leave a little semi-circle flap on each join unglued (it's the grey bit) when you fold them back it gives you a circle to mount the limbs onto, just like a ball joint
Should work in 30mm with extra detail, that model is only 2cm tall

Very nice. Lamination is definitely under-used. The joint connection is very nice. Now to get rotation, I saw an idea that I need to get the image isolated so I can post it. I'll try to get to it tomorrow night.
There are no strangers in this world,only people I haven't embarrassed ... yet!
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)
