Pigmi Games presents a set of eight hand-drawn, double-sided, 30mm scale original paper miniatures suitable for any fantasy rpg or skirmish gaming table! Print them multiple times to create a stunning horde of troops.
A unique fraternity of Splinterwood Elves the Splinter Spears are highly trained to move as one and strike as one. They start their training when they are very young and once they are inducted into the Spears they are a member for life. By themselves a Splinter Spear would be a formidable opponent but as a group they possess the skill to turn the tide of any battle. It is not surprising that so many of the Splinter Knights are pulled from the dedicated ranks of the Splinter Spears.
I think i'm going to switch to photo-paper it make everything look Awesome!!! is it expensive?
From my recent experiences with photo paper for minis and download-and-print scenery, initially it may be somewhat expensive, because you may find you have to experiment with different types to see what works better with your printer (like printers, all photo papers are not created equal...). Once you've fixed on the right kind of paper - both for weight and surface - you should be able to take advantage of the bulk(ier) purchase options most online retailers have available, so the unit cost per sheet goes down.
If you're lucky, you may find an online retailer that does sampler packs - different weights and surfaces, but with only a few sheets per pack. That makes experimenting easier and cheaper than, say, buying a 50- or 100-sheet pack, only to find your printer chews it up instead of printing on it, or the finished quality isn't as good as a slightly different weight/surface paper.

I use Canon matte photo paper for all of my miniature prints. Last year an online retailer was selling 50 packs for $5 each so I loaded up. It's rated at about 65lbs for strength and has an A side and a B side.
For models and terrain I use 80lb or 110lb bright cardstock from Hammermill or Georgia Pacific.
I use Staples double-sided matte photo paper for everything now. For a long time they were having them on sale free after rebate or $1 after rebate. I've got ~ 2000 sheets under my desk. I guess the key is to keep an eye out for sales!

Yay! more Splinterwood Elves in the shops for sale
I like HP printers too, but I found that on some models refilling cartridges can lead to mysterious shorts and circuits going 'fut' when they sometimes develop leaks after being refilled once too often. Mostly I buy my printers second hand for cheap and when they finally stop working I don't shed any tears over it. When Windows 8 came out lots of inkjet printers flooded the second hand market due to driver issues (ie: none were available for those printer models). However I have a clever daughter who has studied computer science and does highly esoteric software development from home so a lack of a particular printer driver is never a problem for me
Just roll the darn dice. Pixel pusher and proud of it.
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)
