Most of the 18th and 19th Century 6mm figures are pretty static. I would like to have some running figures for routed markers. They don't need to be specific for any particular era; I'd even use figures with no hats, guns, or coats under the notion that they tossed it all aside. Any suggestions?

Have you checked Irregular? I used to have just such figures from them.

As robert piepenbrink says might be worth a look thier XT66 BASE OF ROUTERS on this link page may be promissing.

I have large H&R armies and often had a few extra artillery crew with no weapons. I also altered figs with small metal clippers, removing hats, weapons. Any surplus figs became routers or supply guys.

I bought a bunch of the Irregular casualty bases as well.I never noticed the router bases. All used as markers, but….

The real reason for all of this was that it has never seemed right to me that with all of the massed spectacle you get with 6mm, you never see men running away or lying on the ground. Adding these gave the game a different look. Like the American Heritage Civil War maps.

I ordered some Irregular routers, and they are shipping unexpectedly fast (within just a few days). I usually order Baccus, so I am anxious to see them.
