Any suggestions? 15 or 25-8mm

This being the USMC birthday today.

Brigade Games and Pulp Figures both make suitable figures. These are 28mm.

Whoever picked up "Pass of the North" figs has them. Nick…you must remember those.

Dave, oh yes, I had quite a collection of them. Rally more correct for Mexico than the Caribbean though.

Brigade Games does the best. Woohoo!

Company B does US Army miniatures for roughly that period. However the uniforms are close enough and the weapons are spot on. The only thing missing are maybe Lewis guns.

This is an old list from when this was a hot period for me (not sure how many are still available):

I also have two sets of rules in Word format – Paul Hinson's Banana Wars and Greg Blakes Yanks up the Yangtze. Both have been edited by me with permission from both authors. Happy to share both. Email me at preds81.ds at gmail and I will send you the files.
