Cold War and Post Cold War Poles, Livonians, and Ukrainians, like a before and after series for each of them.

Urban chaos types, including Brazilian Favelas and Colombian Narcos, as well as their police.

Resistance fighters from the PLO, Central and South America.

I love the tropical CIA/DEA/XYZ operators idea.

I would really like to see modern Mexicans: cartels, local and federal police, army, and civilians trying to survive.  Mexican cartel gangsters are scarier than *#$% in real life.

I belive spectre has some over armed American hispanic gangers. And special artisan service minatures or kings hobbies are looking at marking more Mexican cartel style guys this year.
"Peace" is that brief, glorious moment in history when everybody stands around reloading.

What have people got against favelados? Personally, I'd rather see a range of vascainos. The perfect walking figure 8s if ever there were. :D

Actually, has anyone scratch built the Dr. No flame-throwing armoured tractor?

There's a die-cast that works perfectly with 28mm.  The cars in the range were 1/43, but the Dr No tank is smaller to fit in the box.  There are usually lots on ebay.
