First time trying to contribute to the forum hoard
Maybe because I've never seen a desert in my life, so that I could think of something more real, the theme of this month makes me think only about post-apocalyptic worlds and the people who inhabit them.
Anyway, I was happy to draw one of my favorite heroes and I will work on this image to resize it and make it a proper paper figure, while experimenting on a comic book style (sort of. "Style" seems a very big word applied to myself).
Terrific, Nemo, it's some powerful work, and the more graphic stylization suits the subject well. I can see this guy fitting in well as a smuggler/space pirate/rebel in Star Wars, Firefly, or Mad Max settings...

A younger (thirty something) friend of mine told me a few weeks ago that he finally saw "Mad Max" and wasn't impressed. It may be hasn't aged well, but I think you really must be a 17 year old (male?) to really "appreciate" that movie. I know I did.
On the other hand, maybe it's the herd that is crazy.
I actually don't know. I saw all three movies for the first time a couple of years ago (I was 30-ish) and I seemed to recognize many elements in them that I saw being re-used massively in more recent works. So I do appreciate them for being so seminal.
I'll admit that I haven't actually seen any of the Mad Max movies, I think only Beyond Thunderdome was the only one to come out when I was old enough to be aware of it... I'll have to put them on the summer watch list.
I made some tries printing the finished mini and I'd say it's kinda good. I'm sorry I only have the camera in my phone to show you the result and it's kind of unjust for the fine job made by the printer.
Anyway, I'll adjust a couple of details and to me he's going to be finished.
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)
