No shit, Sherlock! ;)  lol

But I´ll probably not use Indians. Have to choose proper RDA mercenaries first, then work from there to create suitable Na'Vi. Maybe Preiser 54mm "academy figures" with sculpted detail. Or I´ll use the Bronze Age six-armed Martians to amend the only real problem I had with this otherwise very nifty movie.

why don't You just wait until the merchandise is released and play helicopter and indians until then ??
new variation of WWW (weird wild west)

or maybethere are some 32 mm indians? Reaper?
or at least naked ... don't know! - won't be much work to convert the clothing

First, the toys are absolutely unsuitable. Far too big and not nice enough for my taste. And given recent experiences with film merchandise makes me seriously doubt that there`ll be toys in a more appropriate scale. As for model kits proper, I´m not convinced Revell, Fine Molds or others will purchase the rights for that given the current state of the plastic scifi kit market, and even if they do, it`ll probably be a stupid scale like 1/72nd, or worse, box scale like with the Star Wars kits.

32mm is way too small. IMHO, 60mm would be best, 54mm is acceptable for Na'Vi in 28mm scale. Apart from the fact that there are almost no Indians in that scale (disregarding toy figures), most decent model figures have too much clothes and stuff modelled on (either Woodlands or Plains Indians) to be usable. :( I´m still looking for 54mm Neanderthals which don´t cost an arm and a leg to use for my Perry Rhodan project... :(

So I´ll best get "academy figures" and work from there, or go for a totally different approach like using Kroot warriors for a more feral, nonhuman alien species with smallish 25/28mm human figures. But I tend towards using either Void 1.1 Viridians or Copplestone Castings, so I can also use them with my existing cyberpunk stuff.

And finally, if after all my years on the Fanworld and here people haven´t yet realised that I´m far to impatient to "wait" for anything rather than scratchbuilding something to game it with...

I agree that converting from what exists now is a lot of work.
But - I remember how in the beginning Revell were very reluctant to release Starwars models od the 2nd trilogy and now the market is flooded
plus - Avatar will cause such an Avalanche (already the sequel is announced!) that I expect all kinds of scales and quality, if not 28mm figures...

patience indeed could be a problem.  ;)

I use the Void Viridians myself, and I think You'll still be able to get enough - they are great, a pity they scrapped the range.
Kroot could be a good choice - I converted them myself with saurian heads, and maybe some good elven heads could make proper conversions, or even GW wardancers ? after all there is the danger that "true scale" Na'vi could look odd...

I am a bit pissed, because one of the concepts I was toying with to paint my lizardmen VSF army would make the people say - "Right, poor man's Na'vi, haha", so I'm still considering.
After all, the Na'vi concept is pretty generic for "primitive, nature loving society" for everyone to identify with the "noble savages"

so, good luck to us, Watson  :D 8)

But I still can't imagine the rule system to suit bone arrowheads vs helicopter gunships - how about T&T 2011 "Pandora"  ?? ;)

With a little bit of modification that could make an excellent Orca fighter to go with my GDI light infantry man I have floating around somewhere.
Everything is better with lizardmen.
