Sourcing figures is a large part of the allure of miniature wargaming. In my search to populate Indostan with it's lead heroes and villains I have come across many beautiful (and some not so beautiful) miniature ranges from all over the world. I have compiled a list of the types and ranges used on this blog and in our games.
All miniatures are in the 28mm scale.
British: The bulk of the British infantry are from Front Rank's Jacobite Rebellion range.

PIRATES: The real world pirates that plagued 18th century India were of native stock, the likes of Kanhoji Angria, a Maratha Indian whose operations off the west coast of India developed into what was probably the most successful piracy endeavor of the 17th or 18th century. Alas this is Indostan and I couldn't resist throwing together a pirate force of both European and Oriental types.
For the European pirates I looked no further than Wargames Foundry who have a very substantial range of cutthroats, boarders and buccaneers, with a plethora of wicked weapons.

Alternatively traditional Indian pirates could be represented by the figures above, used for the Indostani troops.
CIVILIANS: Some gentlemen civilians were recruited from the Old Glory European Captains and the Old Glory Fat Governor and Creepy Assistants packs.
