Hi all!! i´m here again. This time finishing think that i left in the middle. When I stop doing minis i left a set almost al 75% done and it´s a debt finish those guys. I must remember one of them, he was in a Papercut award, the two ladies are new for you. It´ll be a set of Adventurers: Dwarves or Dwarfs (i´d never understand why there are two words for the plurar ) (Which of them i must use??). Like i always do, and to please the ladies on the forum, will be male and females version of each character. I hope you like it

Indeed, welcome back Reivaj!
In English, "dwarfs" is generally understood to be more correct, and there is a school of thought that suggests "dwarves" derives solely from its use in J. R. R. Tolkien's Middle Earth novels, because he wanted to separate "his" dwarves from the real-world medical-condition dwarfs. However, the Oxford English Dictionary cites an early usage of "dwarves" to 1818, well before Tolkien's lifetime, and typical English pronunciations of the word could be used phonetically to support either variant. So I'd say, don't worry about it
(As an aside, this logic would also suggest "elfs" could be as equally applied as "elves", though this doesn't seem to be the case at all, judging by the OED at least, which cites just one example, and that as "elfes", from 1579.)
Wonderful poses, I just want to see a lot more beards! Even in the female dwarves! (Tolkien was very specific on that, the plural is dwarves and the female have beards! A matter on taste says some people, but my taste runs with Tolkien.)

This is a set of twelve paper minis with front and back art in 300 dpi. This set try to include the most iconic characters for RPG and Wargames. The set includes 1 warrior male, 1 warrior female, 1 paladin male, 1 paladin female, 1 rogue male, 1 rogue female, 1 cleric male, 1 cleric female, 1 wizard male, 1 wizard female, 1 crossbow male and 1 crossbow female. The set also have two sets of bases hex, for the minis because they use the exchangeable base system so your minis may use different types of bases according to the place where your game´s set up. I hope you like them
Thank you very much guys!. It was a long time not doing minis, this is a set that started last year and just now I could finish, as you will see in the pdf says 2014.
Hackbart thanks, i use a lot of reference images to decide the poses of each mini, it take a long time to see a lot of image and chosse the correct for every character. I think that girls may be will want a more female character to use, because of this i make female dwarfs without beard, but you can always make a custom one from my dwarfs girls
Parduz thank you. Looking for back I can also see the progress, much is due also to the management of new programs that I learned to use. That Knight girl was a Jim´s Sketch that i finished in my first steps in photoshop
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)
