What mortar figures would TMP recommend for 15mm RCW gaming?

Have you looked at Peter Pig? They have a pretty big RCW line.

Crew figures or models of mortar tubes?

I modelled my RCW without mortars. They had them, sure, but I've seen little evidence they used them much. Texts rarely mention them.

The issue was supply. They couldn't reliably supply rifle and artillery ammunition, so specialist stuff had no chance.

Mortars are trench, or at least static position, weapons and there was precious little static warfare.

If I was gaming set piece battles, say Warsaw or Tsaritsyn, then I might rock them out, but it's easier to just ignore them.

If you do get them, I hope you get the ammunition cart to allow them to keep up.

I'd guess Peter Pig has something useful, if only artillery figures.

Skip the mortars, for the reasons Mark states.

Thanks for the replies. I guess I will skip them as advised!
