The best solution is probably to make your own. You'll need three things The weapon. This can be accomplished one of two ways, steal it from an existing mini, or pick up a weapon sprue from your favorite mini house, look in their conversions section.

Paizo and WizKids just announced pre-painted minis for Pathfinder. Unlike the D&D minis, they're not randomized. If you want to paint your own, there's always Reaper Miniatures.
The three 'starter' boxed sets (Dungeon, Wilderness, City) do not.

The prices seem reasonable (about $1 per for most of them) and there was a pretty large selection. Also, the guy was really easy to ...
