A) There are already a couple of figure choices for those who game 28mm:

However, I wish someone would do a similar set but in 15-18mm.

QUESTIONS:
1) Does anyone have plans to make and release a 15mm proxy set of the Seven in the near future? Or, better yet, perhaps a set of the Seven with rifles and another set with pistols drawn?
2) Or does anyone have suggestions on which specific 15mm sets of existing figures have appropriate stand-ins for Yul Brynner and the rest of the Seven, without too much conversion work?

I'm noticing the following basic dress types: 4 guys in shirts (one wearing chaps), 2 in vests and 1 in a jacket:

B) Also, at 15mm or 18mm, I would think that the Mexican village would be much easier to put together than with bigger figures:

I would have a look at the Peter Pig Western range:

together with the spare heads (notably Confederates; ECW floppy hats) in their heads range.

You don't directly get the same figures with both rifle and pistol, but there is a good variety overall. Notably, the character figures come as on foot + mounted + dead: I don't think I've seen this with any other manufacturer.

Bluemoon has quite a few Cowboy types:

Old Glory 25s / Blue Moon have a few other sets, Texas War of Independence but nothing useful for Magnificent 7. I wish they did Mexican peasants but this set has the nearest, Texican civilians, but they are wealthy not peasants. The War Paint set has Indian villagers of which I think the women and children would work fine but not the men.

Alas the Blue Moon 15mm Three Musketeers set does not include Zorro nor any Mexican villagers.

The other problem with the 15mm Blue Moon are that they tend toward 19+mm…scale creep

Very nice figures just large.

Peter Pig has Mexican Peasants, I have some with machetes.
