I hate being "the negative guy" but I will have a bad conscience if I don't mention my concerns about the lance. I'm afraid it is going to be flimsy. Have you thought about re-enforcement? Everything else looks great!
I also was of the opinion that the spear was too long, not only for the practical considerations of building the mini but also for the character, being a ranger that walks through forests, a shorter spear would be more practical.

Exactly what I was thinking, VK. In my experience, the best way to add a weapon is to draw an open hand, put glue on it and wrap it around the stick just like a real hand. So, if a stick is the plan, maybe an open hand is in order. On the other hand, Labrat had good luck with slender bows but a thick black outline, I wondered if Sammo had that in mind, if maybe there was supposed to be an extra layer of card in the shaft or what.
I'm not sure where the official papercut rules stand on non-paper bits.
As for the spear… Thanks for the feedback! I have been wondering about it a bit myself. I initially was going for more of a pole arm style weapon at first and then sort of switched gears to the spear without doing much in the way of re-scaling. I’ll have to look into sizing it down.
I usually shy away from adding a wooden part, even though I have done it in the past I think it generally looks pretty good. But it messes with my preferred storage option of a photo album, which requires flat minis with no bases. Usually I just cut flimsy parts a bit wide and put my black sharpie to work to make them sturdy enough to hold up to game-play.
Though in the case of the papercut awards, when I actually go to build this mini, I’ll likely go for a flimsier spear that looks good in a photo
It's to bad we can't get someone like Rhannon to comb through the forums (he is particularly skilled in this area) ,if you ask him to find a needle in a hay stack he would come back with 6 and say I wasn't sure which one you wanted? , and create a single thread with all the really cool stuff just lying around forgotten on this site. I bet that thread would be HUGE.

squirmydad: You always tell new members how much stuff there is here, but you really have to dive to find it, and some of it is hidden or broken.

cowboyleland: I thought I started a new thread late last night but apparently it glitched. I was asking if anyone had any leads on some female barbarians I could mod onto lion bodies to make D&D style lamia. DOH! I see the thread now.

shep: I think, I'll point him towards the Kickstarter with bravesirkevin's designs, once it goes live...

shep: He basically says that he loves the flat design for being a flat, easy to store design. However, he does not like building cardboard minis, so he's very glad that he can buy these MDF versions.

squirmydad: Found the video, uhm, I don't speak German but I think he likes them.

squirmydad: They are the official licensee for One Monk minis, they also sell designs from Antohammer and Brave Adventures.

shep: I found this website (https://flatpackforces.com/collections/fantasy) via a youtube video. They are offering 2D flat MDF-minis, and they have loads of One Monk designs up for sale. I was wondering, if they licensed the minis, or if this is art theft...
