I want to paint up some Dinosaur riding Pygmies to use in a game Im running ( Runequest Bolo Lizard people if anyone interested) I figure 18mm-20mm figures for the riders will look like pygmies next to my 25-28 mm standard figures. The Bolo Lizard people I might add are light cavalry and tend to wear very little so Native American figures should work and I would prefer not to have to buy the Horses that go with them..
Also looking for Impalas and Ostriches to use as the other two Pigmy tribes.

if you are after cartoony pygmies then Kallistra produce a range including riders

Caesar makes a set of 1/72 scale Goblins (clock in around 20mm tall), wearing mostly loin cloths. Their big, pointed ears can be cut down, making them look like small, Pygmy folk. The set contains 35 figures, for around $15 USD delivered from Taiwan, off of e-Bay.

I snipped off their bases, and mounted them on Triceratops plastic dino's, from a set I got at Wal-Mart (<$10). I also mounted the Caesar Goblins on Schleich Fruit Bats, as aerial cavalry. I'd recommend some hefty glue, or 2-part epoxy to mount them, though. Cheers!
