Does anyone know who makes 15mm scale gun bearers. I have a few, but cannot remember who made them, and I need more, along with porters etc.

Any help most appreciated

What's a "gun bearer"?

In Africa carries hunter's gun, usually muzzle forward ready for hunter to lift and shoot.

Rebel Minis makes porters.

Blue Moon also makes porters and very early askaris that could pass for gun bearers.

Went to look at Blue Moon Askari's. Looked at the porter pack and realized where I had found my original gun bearers

Thank you gentlemen for your assistance.

I do not recall any right off the top of my head.

I didn't even know I wanted a gun bearer … until now. Now I must. :)

Also from Minifigs is their 15mm Zulu command. Has an Induna very suitable for anything to do with Allen Quartermain and the War of the Little Hand, an Induna on donkeyback and a gunbearer.
I think you get two of each pose.

Blue Moon have pack of porters which has exactly the right figures.

Very good find:

The Bluemoon porters do include a gun bearer.

A few others that would not be too difficult to convert.
