Anyone know who might make figures that can be used for the Indian cav in WW1? They had khaki uniforms and turbans, so most likely Sikhs. I have exhausted my browsing of the manufacturers I know of to no avail.

Perhaps there are figs from another period (of which I'm ignorant) that might work? Suggestions, my gaming bruthas?

Oops…28mm. Guess that would help, huh?

Perrys do Sikh heads in 28mm. So any British early cav with a head swap should work unless the uniform was wildly different.

Uniform was different….but ….
Problem is nobody makes dismounts as far as I know
Could fudge OG NW frontier dismounted

Or just use Regular Brigade Infantry

Actually copplestone has Indian infantry that should do…
Just a tiny bit bulkier
Works except for the footwear…no biggie

Gripping Beast (Woodbine Design) infantry can be used to fudge the dismounted cavalry if you don't sweat the details too much. Woodbine also lets you choose your preferred heads (sikh, muslim, tin pots, etc)

If you want LMG teams then consider using the Madsen LMG with the ammo clip cut off for a Hotchkiss automatic rifle equivalent:

Looking good for use as auxiliaries for 20mm WWI, and 1890s to 1930s as well?

Will be picking some up in coming months.
