Thanks Jeff.  I've found a couple of naval guns suprisingly easily.  Crews too.

Even before the regulation of uniforms for sailors many RN captains attempted a degree of uniformity in the purchase of clothing for the ships company.  On larger vessels this could be most pronounced in the crews for senior officers' boat crews who were often kitted out in a distinctive uniform livery.

I'd say take what you can find and any variation you seek can be accommodated by way of a paint brush and the occasional head swap. I have 28mm sailors for the 1830s/40s and mine are kitted out in blue jackets and a mix of white or off white trousers.

Botou os ingleses na roda
3 a 0 no Liverpool
Ficou marcado na história
E no Rio não tem outro igual
Só o Flamengo é campeão mundial
E agora seu povo
Pede o mundo de novo

I thought some pic's might be of interest.  As you can see the Malays come in two sizes.  In fact I'm fairly sure that the figure with turban spear and shield is an Indian.  His bow armed fellow maybe too.  The latter though might work as in the service of a Malay Hindu Raja.

For comparison I've lined up two single Minifigs a QRF Maharatta and a stand of ERM 1840s British. There are also two Stands of Ward's fellows (Mini Figs) from my Tai Ping collection.

I'm still deliberating but, it's looking like Minifigs.
