Another online archive 1880s period book that may be of interest...1877-1878 Russian Army campaigns against Turkey, set a bit far west I know but the first 128 pages are general information about the Russian Army, tactics, weapons etc of the time, also features unit and overall army OOBs...

https://archive.org/details/russianarmyitsca00greeuoft

So you can see a big group of Outpost figures here is my 1879 European Russian Army for a hypothetical campaign in the Antipodes...there are figures in their range thatíd work for Central Asia, I much prefer these to the Askari brand with there Wallace and Gromit hands and sort of flat profile (there are 3 in the picture in the front row I got them as sample)...




Not exactly related but I started putting together my 1879 hypothetical Antipodean stuff back in 2014, believe it or not there were serious fears of a Russian Invasion at the time! Hereís the first of many posts on my blog...

As someone who neither owns a printer nor likes plastic figures, I gotta ask, will these be available in metal? And are there plans to produce their opponents?

I'm having these sculpted and made by someone in Sweden. I or he have no plans to do these in metal. I wish I could because i much prefer metal also.
