I'm looking to convert Steve Jackson's "Battlesuit" to miniatures, and jumping / flying is an integral part of the game.

Wondering if anyone knows miniatures that are in the style of Ogre / GEV that feature action poses of running / jumping, which are key to the fluff. Other desirable aspects of good minis:
- sort of a clean modern look
- Suits discernable as Standard, Assault, Ranger and Command
- preferably two sides that are slightly different [but don't have to be]
- if not in the right pose, are they poseable? In my mind that means plastic most likely

I'm actually open about scale, and ready to pick 15mm, 20mm or 25/28mm as long as they fit the bill.

Obviously, I'd like the minis to be reasonably available and priced, not $25 USD / fig to get OOP minis.

Pictures especially appreciated!

See my post on your other posting.

In 15mm scale, Blue Moon's Orion troopers may fit your needs. GZG, Rebel Minis, Khurasan, RAFM, and others may be suitable for your needs too.

15mm scale probably has the widest range of offerings for your needs.

Starguard miniatures

For multi-posable figures Anvil Industries and Victoria Miniatures make multi-part figures that can be mixed and combined. However, the closest thing that would work for a jump pack is Victoria Miniatures chem back pack.

Someone on Boardgamegeek used Khurasan miniatures for the board game link

Ogre infantry is available from 6m aka 1/300. Paneuropean and Combine, so two types of suits. Six figures for six dollars. There's a "heavy" option, too, which means they come with a single heavy weapon. I think there are six poses per pack?

You could also 3D print some, there are a *lot* of powered suit figures on A *lot*, all different scales.

I suggest you take a gander at Khurasan Miniatures Corsair Battle Suits in the Earthdoom line. They are listed as 15mm but are large enough to be 25/28mm compatible at 35 MM tall. They are configurable to cover the categories you listed and at $5.99 USD each are very reasonably priced. I have found Khurasans' quality to be excellent in all that I have purchased from him.
Good luck and good gaming. :)

As simple a game as it was at the time, I really enjoyed this game as a kid.
