Anyone know of a source for 1/72 (20mm, 1/76, HO would do in a pinch) for Arab civilians?

Stan Johansen has 20mm modern Arab civilians.

Paracel makes a Middle East tank crew and stowage which would work: link

If you get in a pinch the baggy nature of the clothing and robes makes converting other figures possible.

The IMEX American Pioneers are plastic 1/72 scale figures. You can see them at: link

I've successfully (enough) used them with minor conversions and appropriate paint jobs to use them as Arab civilians. They are not 100% correct. Several of them are spot on as is. Others need some X-acto knife work.

The figures that come to mind are Blue Moon "Egyptian Villagers". They are listed as 18mm scale but as I have a set of these myself, I can say I'm pretty sure they would work with 1/72 scale. They would probably be appropriate for late Victorian/ WWI/ WWII period.

Here's a link: link

Check the 1/72 plastics sprue, tons of various Arab/middle East/North African warriors can be used as civilians simply by cutting off a sword or spear
