Can someone provide a list of companies with the most extensive 19th Century (post-Napoleonic but non-ACW) figure lines in 15mm? Focusing mainly on Crimea, Indian Mutiny, Colonial, Franco-Prussian, and other minor European Wars.
I know of Essex, Blue Moon, Freikorps, Old Glory…but I know I am missing quite a few. Thanks! ***BTW, I only want names of companies that are still actually in business…lots of ranges are sadly out of production it seems.

Well, TVAG has a definitive line of "True 15mm" ranges for The Spanish-American War and Moro Wars, as well as the "general purpose" figures in the "Perdicarris Alive, Raisuli Dead!" range: Berbers (foot and mounted), German Infantry, French Cavalry (foot and mounted), US Marine and Sailor Landing Parties, artillery and MG's befitting the original subject, as well as FFL.

These may be ordered via this link

The "Rajah Brooke" range is returning soon, as is the altogether new "Special Mexican War" range in support of the rules, "Gone To See The Elephant."

Other ranges already being sculpted include Martians/Earthers for "Edison's Conquest of Mars." The latter will all be historically authentic for the period of the 1890's to pre-WW I.

In the meantime, don't forget to check out Musket Miniatures, and MiniFigs 15's, among many other outstanding providers.

I second Hafens suggestion, 19th century miniatures LLC has some excellent figures.

A TMP search will turn up several discussions.

To amplify Saber6's post, Minifigs have sizeable ranges for Colonial, Crimean, Franco-Prussian, US-Mexican, and US-Indian Wars – see link

Legio Heroica don't class as "extensive" but have Sardinians and Austrians for 1848 – link
