Only thing I can think of is this thread (http://cardboard-warriors.proboards.com/thread/7652/make-cutfiles-pdfs) which I know you've already seen.
I can't imagine the pixscan mat being up my alley. I like cuts to be precise. I would be really impressed if it was able to carve out a mini inside the thick black border, cutting out negative space that's reasonably large, perforating along the center line, and be sure that the front and back cuts are perfectly aligned. I'd also be really impressed if it was able to carve out 3d model pieces with enough accuracy to assemble them. It seems like a huge win for scrapbookers who have obvious shapes to cut out. Having never used or even seen one in action, take my bias with a grain of salt!
My strongest advice - make cutfiles by hand, don't EVER use the trace functionality, and try to make sure to not have orphaned cutlines floating around your document... If you have ANY questions about whether there's an easier way to do something, please ask. I've learned a lot about crafting by seeing people get answers to things I thought I already had mastered!

I thought that about the pixscan mat too. However, lets say you have things printed out already without registration marks on them. Pop it onto your pixscan mat, scan it in and voila you can place all your cut lines and perforated fold lines just like you normally would. So the skeletons I cut last night were printed ages ago and laminated. No reg marks. No problem, pixscan mat to the rescue. The bandits I cut out were only a half page as I had already done the other half by hand, no reg marks. So I just used the pixscan mat and laid in my cut lines and boom done. I love this thing. I have tons of terrain and building parts printed out already, no reg marks. I am not even worried about it anymore
Never smile too big, the gods may mistake it for hubris.
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.
