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 USD / fig to get OOP minis.

Pictures especially appreciated!

There aren't any jumping or flying, though I suspect you could cut off some of the bases and place them on thin wire or flying stalks, for the 15mm Orion Troopers, from Blue Moon, which are carried by Old Glory.

The suit style for them is pretty heavy, and they clearly have Y-Racks, or rocket packs on their backs, and the figs look quite nice.

There are some other figs in the range which might work well for you too.

GZG, Rebel Minis, and Khurasan may also have some figs you might want to consider in this scale.

15mm probably has the widest range of troops on offer.

There are some Jump Infantry for BattleTech if you are open to a smaller scale: link

The old Mongoose Starship Troopers power suits? They're still available under a generic name, last I saw. Probably not enough variation, though.

Ah, yes, these by Khurasan: SLL-SENIOR-RIFLE-PAK. See the photos of the product right above; these have flight packs.

GZG's UNSC Hardsuits work, if you like the looks of the Traveller troops with grav belts.

Some Imperial power armoured Laserburn figures, also Alternative Armies, clearly have flight backs and I've converted one to 'flight' by the expedient of trimming off the base and adding a pin and base. Don't really have the range of poses or equipment you're after though.
