I was looking fro 1/32 or 54mm figures that are Spanish Guerrillas for the Peninsular campaign. Anyone have any ideas who might make them or how I could convert whatever was already available?

Thanks-

Look at pirates for some figures, especially headscarf and blunderbuss types, Del Prado makes a 1/30 Spanish Guerrilla chief, Weston makes Mexican peasants which can be used (some will have to be armed by you), Morgan Miniatures makes expensive already painted metal figs but I'm guessing you are not looking to spend $40 USD+ apiece. You may also find something useful in Alamo ranges from CTS/Marx reissues/others (such as round hat infantry and cavalry). Marx used to make Mexican peasants in light kit carrying assorted weapons but I don't know if they are still in production or not. All The Kings Men makes a War of 1812 militia fig that you can get in top hats. You can also buy the heads by themselves if you want to do some conversion work. Imex also makes a box of French in bicornes that should paint up okay as Spanish line infantry who joined up with a guerrilla unit.

Thanks 79th- I am already looking at some Alamo and pirate types. I have seen the Mexican peasants, I might have to do a bit of converting to make them look more the part.

Try searching for John Jenkins Designs. He has recently ventured in to the Peninsula War and offers some fabulous figures.

I understand that amongst a number of US distributors, Treefrog Treasures keep a good stock at competitive prices.

I have some of the John Jenkins figures. Very nice and sturdy. They hold up to gaming very well.

I stumbled upon this old post and I'm glad I did. 79th PA is full of good suggestions. I have some of the Barzso Mexican Militia and they are a good base; I'm going to add some variety to the headgear using green stuff. One more source, if you're not too picky about size, is the 42mm Scruby figures from Historifigs. They make two Spanish Guerrillas as well dismounted French Dragoons for them to snipe at. Though listed as 40mm, they fit very well with Airfix 54mm Napoleonics. Finally, Irregular Miniatures has an eight figure range of Guerrillas which I would have gone with had I not had the Barzso and Scruby figures on hand.

Expeditionary Force has also released their 54mm dismounted French dragoons.
