Foundry has assorted figures in their various "Pike and Shot" ranges that may be useful for your Elizabethan project.

Foundry also has some civilians from their Wild West figures. Farmer and wife, newspaper reporter, town doctor, other trades and professions.

North Star's GS43 Civilians are worth a look. The men are probably too wide of the mark, (at least not w/o a head swap) but the ladies might work.

For Elizabethan village types, just about any Dark Age thru Medieval salt of the earth'y types ought to work.

A good visual reference for acw civilian looks is the movie "Gangs of New York". Of course there are many good inspirations in other sources like " Gods and Generals", "Gettysburg", "Glory", and such.


If in need, some figures look right (in my opinion) from the American Revolution period, the Victorian period, and the Wild West period. Some of my links reflect this opinion.


There are more articles on this on TMP.

The most elusive acw civilians I know of are the "uncivil war" figures. No idea how to find them any more.

Speaking of gangs Of New York, The virtual armchair general has lots of figures for that. They are armed with clubs and pistols and such, but easily converted to an unarmed civilians. Brigade games too In their Victorian section. These are, of course, city civilians.

Elizabethans:

Hoka Hey link have some suitable Elizabethan civilians in their Border Reivers range. These were the Graven Images range and include the Baby-Eating Bishop of Bath & Wells.

The Assault Group also have some in the English Tudor range: link Includes Blackadder types.

There was another range of 28mm Reivers whose name escapes me for the moment.

Eureka are probably worth a look too – they just launched all the characters from Romeo and Juliet. link or link

You can always use figures from the Dixon range and some of the Foundry Seadogs will work as civilians.
