You may like to look at Casting Room Miniatures 28mm Trojan civilians and Persian civilians. I’ve got some myself. Pretty good.

Thanks for sharing @JDM I'll take a look at them. The Trojan civilians look like they could work as Esrolian citizens.

Medieval ducks in 15mm.  A fit?  Would 15mm ducks look right alongside 28mm humans?  Are their weapons and armor too advanced for Glorantha?

Enticing!

@Helliwell I sent reply message to your response on the Infinity-Engine form with details of what I'd like to order for the miniatures and the Strike Rank Tracker additional player sets.

I think you can make them a bit more old-fashioned with minimal changes (file/cut problem bits, add/remove details, etc.), and the right paint job (paint metalwork in copper/bronze instead of silver/grey "iron/steel" colors, paint the armor as "leather/brown" instead of metalwork, etc).

Some elements (that very-swashbuckling feathered hat on one) might not be adaptable, unless you can tolerate Gloranthan anachrony.

Some more that I thought of:

Eureka Miniatures have a lot of ancients - Assyrians, Greeks, Amazons, Persians, etc. That's an Australian site but I know they have distribution deals in other countries.

There's Gangs of Rome for lightly-equipped Roman men and women, and quite a lot of civilians too. Brace yourself, though, they're not cheap.

Crocodile Games have Wargods of Aegyptus and of Olympus.

Bear's Head miniatures have some nice ones, including a great undead rhino which I'm sure everyone would love to encounter somewhere in Prax.

I also have a vague memory of someone whose range included amazons riding antelope, but my memory and search fu are failing me.

How big are ducks supposed to be compared to an average human?  The Duckmen at 20mm would be brawny fellows but a head shorter than a 28mm human hero.  The 15mm duck warriors would be hobbit or toddler size compared to a human adventurer.

Spearwoman, kind of pricey for a single figure.  So far haven’t found many packs of female warriors, mostly expensive individuals.

From their line of Celtic figures

I didn’t care for the look of these:

Black Tree Design have three sets of Greek civilians that are useful for Glorantha. Wargames Foundry WG 168 also worth a look

I purchased a pack of Oxen miniatures (2) from the WizKids Pathfinder Battles Deep Cuts miniatures line that could work The Broken Tower Runequest Glorantha QuickStart adventure.

I should probably pick up a couple more packs of Oxen that can be used with any other encounters with Praxian Tribes. A few bison would be useful too. I need to get me a few of the War Llamas.

Courtesy of my Pinterest stream, this amazing figure came to my attention today. OK, it's not a mini for gaming, rather a modeller's piece as it's a 20cm tall, but it caught my eye immediately and made me think of Jar-Eel. It's not quite right for her, but it is undeniably Gloranthan in feel, which makes sense as it is of Penthesileia, Queen of Amazons from Trojan mythology.

They also do  a neanderthal shaman whom I think would make a pretty good Praxian shaman

I'm more thinking Hsunchen, but it might work for either.

Penthesilea does not look like a happy camper. Wouldn’t want to cross her.

These are fantastic!

My Pinterest stream has coughed up the goods again. More figurine busts. The page has pop-up pics so it's a faff to link to the particularly relevant ones, I'll leave you to look at those that take your fancy

But to give you an idea, my mind immediately named this, 'Shouldn't that bear be white?'
