Looking for these to start a new period, Rajah Brooks, or anything which can be used as substitutes. Any ideas.

While not the exact period some of these may work: link

Also, again, while not from the exact period, these may work at well:

Sheltrum in the UK had Dyaks in Kayaks which would fit nicely. But I do not know if they are still in production.
The London War Room had Rajah Brooke I think in 15mm, but they too are long gone.

If it is 28mm figures you are after, have a look at some of these…

TVAG still offers the TSATF 20 dependent variant, "The Kris And The Flame" in PDF format: link

The Rajah Brooke 15mm range of figures has been reconstituted after its loss with the demise of TLWR, and is scheduled for re-release late this year or early next. Some new figures have been added, and the biggest hurdle left to cross is the recreation of the original range of 15mm scale boat models (Prahu's, Kora-kora's, etc).

A number of 15mm card stock models are still available, printable as full color PDF's, but are not currently advertised on site. If you would be interested, I would gladly send you a copy for your evaluation.

And as part of the "definitive" range for Rajah Brooke (British sailors/marines, Dyaks, Chinese and Illunan pirates, Malays, etc), another range of PDF models of huts and longhouses, including a fort, are available via this link

It has taken a long time to get to this point, but as the Rajah Brooke range of figures, rules, boat and building models is finally being reconstituted, we expect to once again be the complete resource for this fascinating subject.

If your planing on using 28mm figures, then I have some Scheltrum Miniatures Dyaks you might want. Here is an old Catalog link
that shows the figures. I live in California so postage should not be too much. If your interest let me know and I'll dig them out and tell you exactly what I have. My e-mail is michaelconle@mac.com

Eureka sell some gorgeous 28mm Dyaks. I think there are seven poses, and conversions and head / weapon-swaps can get you more. Recommended.

Tiger Minis Warriors of Lombok work pretty well (available at Recreational Conflict). IMO these are some of their best minis. I also whole heartedly support Chick's recommendation of Eureka's Dayaks. They are just excellent figures and I have a bunch.
