So to go with the pixel art terrain my partner and I have been working on, we've also got some figure flats to showcase. These are designed to be (mostly)low fantasy with some fun, quirky elements. Adventurers/mercenaries, soldiers, men at arms, monsters and the like. These should be usable for a variety of wargames/RPG stuff, but there is a quick-and-dirty tabletop game in the works as well (think the old GW Battle Masters meets Dust Tactics).
Here's some higher quality pics of the test builds we've got so far, strutting their stuff on some of the terrain we've already done.
Men at arms (with Hyrule Warriors and classic Lego Castle inspired coat-of-arms)
Men at arms archers
Northmen with a few shield variations
Some unruly orcs
And a close-up of one of the merc swordsmen, sans cloak this time.
Still fiddling with some of the colors for print on everybody a bit. Thoughts, questions, feedback?

Here's our basic man-at-arms design. With our figures we generally try to shy away from blacks and very dark colors, especially on the outside of a model. Got a few options I've been fiddling with at the moment for outlines on the guys with dark colors.
First is the unmodified flat with a black outline. Second is the figure with brightness/contrast adjusted a bit to make it stand out against the black. Third is a subtle white glow around the figure on top of the border. I've also fiddled with changing just the blacks and browns, but haven't really liked the results for it.
I like the armor/weapon/shield/black border of the left one, but the lighter grey of the legs and arm bits in the middle, since it offsets nicely from the black border. That my unsolicited 2¢ - Looks nice!
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.
