When I made my promo shots I first made a 'xtea' horse matching Kevins miniatures size. But when I put it next to a wagon it looked to small. I then made a horse of the right size and found that the wagons are more matching 30mm minis like David Okums. For each version I made its own cutfile.
Is there a way to scale print the PDF and then scale the cutfile or is there no way around producing different PDF with matching cutfiles?
If you scale the PDF, the reg marks will get scaled. You can scale the cut lines, but you'd have to manually adjust the reg marks in the cutfile to match the size and position. In my opinion, it'd be more reliable to import the graphics (sans reg marks) into the cutfile, scale everything together, and print from silhouette studio.
If someone has a more clever way to handle it, I'd love to know too!

Print upscaled then scale the cutfile? Nah.
I always scale them together using the standard approach: if needed export the normal-sized PDF - align with cutfile - scale both together - if needed, hide the original cutmarks (with white filled no-cut boxes) print from Studio and cut.
I don't think so. I made them myself a couple of days ago :-) I can share the unfold/geometry but not the texture I have used. It's a texture extracted from the World of Warcraft game. I'll prepare them and then will have to see how to make them available here. Or maybe on the OneMonk site.
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.
