My thought is that i like it a lot (think at Okum characters) but the style "must" be functional ("must" is related to my taste). I mean: heroes, four adventurers, they could benefit from a toon style to gather more personality and expressiveness (hope that's the word). Conversly, i don't see any advantage of a whole army of Average Joe soldiers drawn in comic style (other than being coherent with the heroes drawing styles). The only real drawback is on the user tastes, anyway: not everyone likes to play "serious" games with comic-style minis.
Probably the comic book style is an obstacle in the design of realistic army. In simple poses models are ok but if we are telling about kneeling or in a different complex position, it do not pass the exam. Unless I am mistaken.

I think you could probably make the poses work, but Parduz has a point about tone. Cartoon style works for "Song of Fur and Buttons" but that is a light hearted game. I can't imagine using light hearted figures for any other game system, but people play Flipit Paper Combat (a cartoony version of WWII) so there are people with differing tastes out there.
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)
