The chap at top right might work. He seems about the right shape and the style of clothes about right. The glasses might be hard though.Best of luck.

What scale are we talking about? I would guess 25/28mm, but could it be 15mm? If so Wargamer (By Fire and Sword) out of Poland make a figure with a beard and glasses in 15mm. You might have to change his clothing a little.

So angry that they stopped translating the books into Greek or English. That said the illustrated Spanish Versions are works of art

I've read the first book in English. Very good evocation of early 17th Century Madrid. With so few decent Thirty Years War stories it was excellent. OK it's not based around the TYW but it is close enough for me.

The film was excellent, but tried to cram all the books into one film, so I want to read the other books. K Travlos, I hope we can get them second hand if they are not being published now.

Adam, how's it going with your figure search?

it is not the publishing that is the issue. It is that they stopped translating them. The Greeks stopped at the "Kings Gold", and the US has stopped at "The Cavalier in the Yellow Doublet".

I wish I knew spanish. The Spanish versions, which I saw when I was a PhD student at Urbana-Champaign were works of art, and there is a interesting RPG and some great graphic novel versions, both in spanish.

@KTravlos Pirates of the Levant came out in 2010 in English.

@Kroptkin303 still hunting found one or two that might work with some conversion
