Where could I get 28 mm minis for native american civilians please? Squaws, children but also old shamans, bisons, etc.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Dixons Miniatures do squaws, children and scrawny dogs in the Plains War line and a variety of buffalo and even a buffalo skull in their Old West line. The figures are numbered as they were produced so it is necessary to scroll down the list to find all the suitable types.

RAFM makes a chiefs and medicine men/shamans pack in both their Plains and F&IW ranges. Note that RAFM are older 25s, so they are actually 25s.

Thanks for the links!
All my apologies for saying "squaws". I'm told it might sound offensive to some people and I really had no idea.

For Plains Indians Old Glory 25s makes an Indian villager pack.

saw some plastics at Michael's yesterday that might help a bit if you have one close.

Irregular for apache civs. Foundry have a few women but you have to buy other packs to get one woman in. Look in the Mountain Men range. Foundry's Mexican women are quite easy to convert to Apaches if you are handy with putty.

LotOW uses the expression 'berdache'. When you look at the etymology of the word it's really inappropriate, the term 'two-spirits' works much better.

Pegasus does a batch of California Mission Indians in a couple of sizes, hard plastic and relatively cheap.

CP Models is about to release 3 of my sculpts. One is a Plains Indian maiden. Keep any eye on the website, she'll be out soon.
