I am looking for early war U.S. Army and Marines for the Philippines, Wake Island, etc. in 28mm. I have a handful of the Pulp Figures organized into squads. Does anyone make figures for this period in this scale?

Before posting I did some searches in TMP but didn't come up with a previous thread on this topic.

I don't really think there are any beyond this guy:

There are some 1/72 figures from here:

Gotta love that he has done the old M1917 37mm infantry gun though! We don't have that in 15mm beyond WWI stuff.

And some 15mm here from Eureka:

I've thought about using Bolt Action miniatures and just doing head swaps. The US troops basically wore the same gear, just in khaki, and wore tin hats. They even used M1 Garands too.

You may be able to use some of the Pershing/Villa models if you're willing to do head swaps. I know OG do some; I think I have seen others. This would allow you to do the ever-popular 26th Cavalry charge.

Thanks. I was unaware of Early War Miniatures. How do they compare in size to Warlord or Black Tree?

Early War Miniatures are 20mm.

Pulp Figures has two packs in 28mm in Helmets, plus another three packs in the soft hat.
