Hello,
Are there any miniatures available for the Great Paraguyan War or War of Triple Alliance in 25-28mm?

Obscure Miniatures had some, but I don't see anything but an email address for them in the manufacturers directory.

Kings Carbine Miniatures released some Paraguyans a couple of years ago. They may still be available. Some pics of my painted ones here:

I'd certainly really like to see the range develop.

That's the War of the Pacific 1879-1884 between Chile, Bolivia and Peru. The figures in kepi would probably pass for Allies. Since the war was fought in a tropical climate, i think the greatcoat would not be the thing.

As for the Paraguayans, nothing else really looks like them.

Freikorps 15 makes a sizable line in 15mm but I'm unable to find any in larger scales.

You can get Paraguys from KingsCarabine. For the Brazilians, a mix of USA ACW figures, French Crimean War or 1859 War Chaussers will do fine. For Uruguyans a mix of Carlists, French Crimean War or 1859 Chaussers will be sufficent.
