I know of a Colleague who teaches sculpture here who does super detailed die-cast resin military figurines and sells them from hobby shops here and have "toyed" with the idea of having him commission a PS figurine. But his not cheap to commission.
Went to a war gaming convention in the area to check out the vendors. My son has been wanting more French Waterloo cavalry and infantry to add to his set. While we were looking mostly for plastic 1/32 and 1/35 scale toy soldiers, there was an incredible amount of the very little ones used for the table top war games. And look what I saw one vendor had... I bought some pieces but they're so little I'm not sure how I'll paint them. I tried to buy the display but it wasn't for sale.
I bought some Wake Island marines to make into "Bataan"
I also bought a box of 1/32 scale WW1 doughboys to possible fake as PS. It will probably depend on how they are painted.
