I am in need of a specific kind of miniature, that is being surprisingly hard to locate. He needs to be Victorian, with a pith helmet, tunic, pants and boots and toting an elephant gun. The miniature must have all of these aspects. Does anyone know of a manufacturer that makes a miniature with these features?

You didn't specify scale? But I think in 28 mm you should check out Pulp Miniatures (or whatever they're called, Bob Murch's company – that talented scalawag who doesn't make figures in 15 mm!). I'm pretty sure you can find what you need there.

Beware my electronic pools of drool when you visit.

Early Morning Writer – yes, I apologize, I did mean 28mm.
Out of all of these figures, I like them all, but I think the Wargames Foundry hunters will fit the majority of my collection the best. But, I've heard that Foundry is less than completely reliable in their service (which is a pity, since I like a lot of their figures). Also, I'm not entirely sure if they even still have a working website. If they do have a working website, can someone give me a link to it?

I've never had a problem ordering from Foundry, Pulp Figures, or Copplestone.

This doesn't work?

I've had good service from Foundry over the years.

I live in California and have been ordering from Foundry since it came under its old/new management and restored prices and shipping to a reasonable level. In the last couple years I have ordered from them several times. The service has been great. I get my stuff in two weeks or less. I absolutely love their 28mm Darkest Africa line of figures and used it extensively when I put together my African Adventure collection. I just bought some figures/not Africa from their new Casting Room Miniatures site and the service was equally good. In fact their Casting Room Miniatures site is offering free shipping anywhere until the end of 2015 as a promotion for their opening. I'll end with a little self promotion/vanity and say that you can see my African Adventure collection in diorama form at link

I included active links to Foundry and Copplestone, straight to the appropriate catalogue pages. Hope that the link works for you.

I've never had a problem with Foundry's mail order service, once I got past the sticker shock and actually placed an order.

I live in Texas & I've had great service from Foundry over several years.

Never had a problem with any of those miniature companies

Could look at artizan miniatures british…. They have a cool looking NCOs pack…a gun swap might be needed though to meet ur criteria

There's also some good big game hunters in Reaper's Chronoscope Historical range.

We have a rather portly chap with his gun (and gin) bearer.
