You should send a "complaint" [!] to The Editor asking to crosspost to the Getting Started boards in Napoleonics and 19th Century.

You need to include 15/18mm manufacturers in your listing. I use Blue Moon for my Wo1812.

There is also Old Glory that makes 25mm figures, and of course many others for the British/Canadians.

Knuckleduster has some wonderful 28mm War of 1812 figures.
