I am going to suggest Big Trouble in Little China! (What can I say, it is one of my guilty pleasure movies): First installment, Lo Pan! I am still in the process of shading and tweaking but he came together well enough that I thought I would show him and ask for input.
If I can finish him early who should I do next? Egg Shen, The Three Storms (basket headed guys), or Jack Burton?
So I have a couple of questions for those interested... How tall (in scale) should Lo-pan be given that he is a "10 foot tall road block" and how much lightning is too much to put on the model of Lightning?
Test builds of Lo pan at a few different sizes and my early attempts at a lightning effect on Lightning:

I like Storm without the pillar of lightning beside him. As for Lo-pan, I think "10' tall" is Jack Burton exaggerating. Even if he is especially tall (SO temped to put in the DVD . . . No, things to do today) he never appears "large" I mean his shoulders don't get wide in proportion to his height. I would maybe stretch him below the waist a bit but mostly I would leave him on the normal side.
On the other hand, maybe it's the herd that is crazy.

Well, I was supposed to go winter cabin camping with the cub scouts this weekend but since I am fighting some bug I am on the couch instead. The cub's loss (at least I like to think) is VK's gain. I'm not sure if there might be copyright issues putting this in the hoard, but thought I would post it here first anyway.
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)
