Looking to add to the Km Marel miniatures…

Motorcycle police , Riot squad , Horse police , Swat team , Security gaurds , Thugs , Bikers , and basically civilians that would meet eye to eye…

Has to be metal and not a statue pose…

There's always some of the Knight Models DC range – Gotham Police, various gangs.

Yeah, you're going to want to raid the Batman/DC minis for the police and other gangbangers.

Knight Models are tall, ~36mm or more tall.

Infinity minis would sorta work for the bikers (on bikes), there are some bikers that aren't too far off the Knight scale:

I know you said they had to be metal, but if you have any flexibility on that i feel the Zombiecide minis work well with the KM Batman figs, and Marvel should be about the same.

Meekor21 May 2017 10:19 p.m. PST

Well Vagabond I took a gander at the
Zombicide…Nothing really caught my eye for what I am looking for…

For civilians, I think you're going to be hurting for metal models. Infinity has a few, but they're $10 USD each. Spectre has some (I count models armed with pistols as civilians), too, but basically no unarmed females.

I'd look for the Wargames Factory unarmed Zombie Survivors to use for civvies. They're plastic, but easily converted and are great for random American civvie/noncombatants.

Batman Minis has some police and SWAT troops that will scale up perfectly. The Gotham Police sets even have a fat officer (and a not-too-curvy lady cop), Commissioner Gordon comes with some SWAT offiers, Commissioner Loeb has more Gotham PD officers. You could use the Mobsters as detectives. Downside is price, Knight Models are even more expensive than Infinity (and that's a real downer for what is basically Set Dressing for a game)

Meekor: fair enough, I was looking for alternate minions for Harley Quinn, so the weaponry works for me.

Lion: In my opinion, the Project Z are too small. They're a true 28mm, and KM is a lot bigger than that. Someone used actor heights to conclude they're pretty close to 1/43.

Which means in theory O Scale railway figures, especially european ones, should be good, but finding such figures with reasonable detail that aren't Edwardian time frame is a challenge i have yet to solve, so i don't know for certain…
