For John Carter, my first pass would be Rattrap's Fantastic Worlds, though Pulp Alley and 7TV would also be contenders with a little thought about how to convert.

Tarzan would maybe be Pulp Alley or 7TV too, though something like Crom, converted to the early 20th century, might be a better engine, since you have the superstar vs. mooks probably with Tarzan that you have with Conan etc. too.

Pulp Alley.

if you want a straight up miniature game you can find the old TSR Warriors of Barsoom rules on the Guttuenburg <sic> Project site as a free download

QILS, 'coz we play lots of ERB Barsoom games with it already.

Gamma World is a pretty simple, light, and flexible system that would probably work well, but it is more an RPG system than a pure tabletop wargame.

TSATF for large battles.

Fantastic Worlds is perfect for the superhero type exploits of John Carter and Valor, Steel, and Flesh is great for big Martian battles.

Gaslight for skirmish.

Martian Empires for big battles.

Savage Worlds, maybe a mod of Lord of the Rings SBG.

My crew would do, and does, with GASLIGHT in a heartbeat, though the noble hero is 'Jason Carson.' ;=>=

I must say, I'm rather intrigued by picking up V&S&F, though.

BH-M is biased, but knows how much I'm pickup from him and even more from Mark at Scalecreep, in preparation to play Martian Empires.

Love the figs.

Swashbuckling set En Garde by Osprey proves eminently suitable for Barsoom and John Carter skirmish games.
