In order to save time when setting out my figures and buildings I've mounted some of them on boards to represent pavements. I bought a card of ten old fashioned clothes pegs for 5 euros and after shaping a rough (very rough) face with my Dremel and adding a bit of clay to the bodies have got a lot of figures suitable for background scenes;

Mikey, your ingenuity never ceases to amaze me! How did you do the child figure?

Cheers Clive. The child was just an odd bit of pate i had left over. I found a new (to me ) brand of cooking clay called 'colorem' which doesnt go too soft when you model it.Most of the time theres no need for armatures.
