Other than the Wargames Foundry Askari and Zanzabari artillery crews (both packs come with the gun of course) I was trying to find some other Arab/Tribal gun crews (with or without gun is optional) in 28 mm. I am looking at scratch building a couple of Arabic Dhow boats each with at least a single cannon or other gun and would like suitable figures to represent the crews. While I love the WF figures, buying multiple packs is cost prohibitive so I am looking for what else might work.

May not be exactly what you are after, but you could take a look at Askari Miniatures:

Some of those would do for the European forces. Thanks willthepiper.

Old Glory offers 16 machine gun crew in their "Sons of the Desert" line -- maybe they'd do? link

Well Jeff, those Old Glory figures would do quite nicely. Thanks.

Kallman, there's a similar thread on another forum. I've used those Old Glory Sons of the Desert figs and OG and Perry plastic Ansar spear or sword armed troops and converted them to gunners.



Here's a link to the blog post. I hope it helps.
