I have to say, I've never noticed these 15mm guys before:

irregularminiatures.co.uk

I have no idea what the code letters stand for, though.

What do you think? The Paraguayans could be jungle guerrilla troops/bandits and the Bolivians could be used as government troops for some banana republic, right?

And if anyone is looking for an Indy stand-in …

More non-locals …

Throw in some Amazonian (Hovitos?) Indians and voila. The rest is rope bridges, jungle foliage and other terrain.

PS. Khurasan makes a similar range. I wonder if they would mix.

I always thought of using Eureka's miniature WW II armed sailors as a backup/rescue team or as shore party.

I wanted to do across of "Tells of the Golden Monkey" and "Mchales Navy". My hero would have a seaplane and his friends would be on a PT Boat.

Hi Dan
The Filipinos and Marines halfway down are from Eureka.
The other figures seem to be Khurasans.
Buckeye Dan does some excellent stuff from what I have seen. (I also like another subject he does, the Korean War)

Also maybe Indy could have a run-in with the local police?
Officers (with swords. Maybe cut them down as truncheons?)

McHales Navy and Tales of the Golden Monkey…wow…that would be a hell of a mix to see. (I once met a fellow in a back alley in Southern France who I thought was Ernest Borgnine )

You are absolutely right. Wow, those Greeks would work great for local police!

Maybe Indy (or O'Connell*) will encounter more than just dictators, rebels and natives in the jungles:

This Pulp painting by Robert Lesser looks like something Indy or one of his colleagues or rivals (that Frenchman?) would be discovering.

I'm not sure if this other one is also Lesser's work or not. I would guess not:

Here's another interesting painting to inspire:
