The following is a quick listing of the figures that I consider likely candidates for use as magic users and clerics in 1/72 scale.
The first image is of two different versions of Ral the Evil Wizard from the Personalities and Things that go Bump in the Night line (Ral Partha 01-001), an illusionist from the Fantasy Adventurers line (Ral Partha 03-064), and a wizard from the Wizards and Clerics boxed set (Ral Partha 98-001).
Next are a dwarf seer with crystal ball from the Dwarven Personalities blister pack (Ral Partha 01-070), an elvin spell caster from the Elvin Personalities blister pack (Ral Partha 01-076), a half elf spell caster from the Half Elves blister pack (Ral Partha 01-106), the Magic Master from the Wizards and Lizards line (Superior WL-006), and two wizards which I believe are Grenadier.
Additional non-human spell casters can be found here, and here.
The following clerics are all from the Personalities and Things that go Bump in the Night line. The first figure is the Cleric with Staff (Ral Partha 01-004), followed by three clerics from the Clerics blister pack (Ral Partha 01-073), and finally, the Patriarch (Ral Partha 01-006).
Next are the female spell casters. The first figure is the Enchantress from the AD&D Females boxed set (Grenadier 2007), followed by the Enchantress from the Personalities and Things that go Bump in the Night line (Ral Partha 01-055), the Sorceress from the same line (Ral Partha 01-029), a priestess and sorceress from the Wizards and Clerics boxed set (Ral Partha 98-001), and a sorceress and cleric from the Female Adventurers boxed set (Ral Partha 98-013).
Finally, I list some of the available miniatures in plastic. The first three figures are from the Caesar Adventurers set (Fantasy 104), while the last figure is a D&D CMG Halfling Enchanter (Desert of Desolation #18).
Many of the older 25mm metal figures have disproportionately large heads and limbs, with some being more chunky as well, but except for the Superior Magic Master, they still tend to scale out to about 6 feet or under in height. I think that many of these figures can be used as is, but others would look a lot better with a head swap, and some minor modifications.
