I wonder if there are any 15mm figures that could pass for Uighur separatists attempting to rescue people out of the new indoctrination/re-education camps popping up again in Communist China.

1) Hmm. Would 15mm Afghan figures work, specially if they don't have overly thick beards? Or would something else be better for Uighur?

2) And would these Rebel Minis figures work as armed guards on those camps, specially near insurgency hotspots?


3) Also, the general terrain for such a game would be very similar to what you already see in Afghanistan games, right? Yes? No? Maybe?

No to using Afghan figures.
No, youd be better of using minis that look like beat cops.
Unless the various internal security units running these centres are especially stupid, they wouldn't locate them anywhere that isn't flat for at least three miles in every direction.

There was a documentary on Al Jazeera about a village in north east Afghanistan that was a ' refugee centre' for a large group of exile Uighurs..( suspiciously all males in their twenties)….they were practically indistinguishable from the locals.
For a mission into China they would attempt to blend in surely….?

"For a mission into China they would attempt to blend in surely….?"

I guess that then begs the question, what clothing do people that remote part of China normally wear?

I'm not exactly sure if this is from that area:


Maybe that's how China justifies requiring DNA from travelers there?

You don't say no to a Chinese cop,because you will get the Bleeped text beat out of you.
