Having a dig around in the lead pile can pay off. I found these chaps from a large batch of Plains Wars figures.
They're Dixons Miniatures dismounted US cavalry, but with a suitable paint job I think they can represent a militia made up of white settlers in Colonial lands. Armed with near-obsolete weapons they can defend their settlement until the army arrives, or serve as a useful adjunct to the regular force in the field.
There's probably three times as many figures again in the collection they came from, but ten or so seems enough.
