Edit: The image posted here had alignment issues. I have made a new one and will try to post it below.
Since I already have one off-topic submission to the hoard this month, I decided to post this here. I wasted a long time googling things like "cloaked figure" before I hit on the idea of searching "Venetian Noble" (which was actually what I was trying to depict.
I found a pen and ink sketch from, I think, the period (16th century) and coloured him using the Hackbarth Process. The paintings I found showed Venetian patricians in either all black or all red, but I took some artistic licence.
When he was done he looked a little small next to the Permes pirates I want to use him with (I will scale them all down to 15mm) so I actually made him about 17% broader than the original sketch. I think he looks OK.
A very good illustration. It just seems un-miniature like, lacking the exaggerated proportions of gaming miniatures. But to use with Permes miniatures he is spot on, Permes is a more realistic designer. If I used him with Jim's and other designs more inspired by metal and plastic miniatures I would scale the head and hand a bit. 105%, 110% perhaps.
I always do a double take when I read Hackbarth Proccess. Surprises me 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)
