I'll take a stab. I've not built any of Eddnic's stuff, but here's what I am guessing from the picture.
For the lavasaurus, I believe the parts are (clockwise from top-left) head and jaw, neck, body (below neck), spines for back, front legs, hind legs, tail.
For the head, I'm guessing you want to cut em out and glue the left half to the right half. That'd give them an interior and exterior facing texture. I can't tell if there are any fancy cuts on the head. Looks like it from the picture. For the neck, the black triangles are tabs to glue the two halves together. It's not flat - it should end up being kinda tube-like. For the body, the light brown triangles are the tabs. It looks like there's a cut along the lava-textured middle of the body (that's the back) on both sides, allowing the piece to bend properly. The neck attaches to the body by taking the lava-textured triangular bits and pulling them over the body and gluing in place. The tail is kinda like the neck. The longer triangles are spikes, and glue together. The smaller triangles are tabs to glue. The end of the tail is glued together, but the wider end I think is bent to form a tube. The two triangles at that end are probably to attach it to the body. The legs - glue front to back, then glue to the body. The spines... I don't think they're attached in the picture. I'm guessing glue front to back without gluing the rounded ends - those are flaps to bend out so you can glue them to the back of the monster.

Tweezers are an essential part of the gear dude! Once you get used to them it's like having extra-long, extra skinny fingers that are good at getting into those tight spaces. They also come in pretty handy when you've got an awkward joint that needs to be held together while the glue cures.
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)

oldschooldm: Yup. More power to anyone who tries it. It will only whet the appetite for people who want paper minis that were designed to be paper minis. :-) Fronts and Backs FOREVER! :-) [... it's bait, don't bite it! ... ]

cowboyleland: Now I have seen it. It doesn't advance our hobby, but anyone with half a brain who wanted 2nd rate figures could easily figure this out for themselves so I guess he isn't doing any harm.
