Sumerian Chariots in 6mm

Remember back in 2005, when I promised pictures of those Sumerian chariot stands in 6mm?

So I'm looking to do a 28mm chola army for ADLG and so wanted some thoughts from people here.

Now I have a bunch of classical Indians , mainly old Glory and 1st Corps miniature. Now my plan is to use some of the classical Indians , not perfect I know. And also mix in some 1st corps Burmese/Thai with my left over classical Indians that didn't make it onto being based.

I'm also thinking about any later Muslim Indian types as well, something that isn't , not sure how to put this but Arab figures that can get away with being chola , with some different shields or something maybes.

Am looking around the internet at Indian, Burmese, Thai and Muslim types. Anyone have any ideas that will be close enough ?

I want to use my classical Indian elephants as I have 4 of those already and don't want to get a whole new lot of other elephants, especially as Chola were southern india, Burma and Indonesia area anyway so can hopefully get away with it.

I don't think many people will know the difference so you are probably ok to use what you like

If anyone does Renaissance Period Hindus in 28mm that would be a good place to go. That is what I mainly. used in 15mm

India is such an overlooked area for wargaming. It would be lovely to have more armies available in 28mm; they are so exotic!
