I have these two Master Box Indian War Series figure sets:
Raid: http://www.mbltd.info/figures/1-35-scale/indian-wars/35138.html
Remote Shot: http://www.mbltd.info/figures/1-35-scale/indian-wars/35128.html
Anybody know if these two sets represent similar tribes/nations from the same era? ie; can these four figures be intermixed? They are clothed in similarly decorated buckskins and moccasins, but "Remote Shot" appears to be Plains Indians, and "Raid" appears to be in a more mountainous area. There is no historical background included with the figures.

Hey there! For the most part I feel they would complement each other well! Remote shot appears to be ( as far as my limited knowledge of their fashion senses can help) Northern Cheyenne, mostly due to their lack of braids. While Raid appears to have figures showing tribes of the Western Rockies, these figures would fit in nicely with the tribes of the Northern Plains!

Yeah, I came to a similar conclusion, too. I think "Tomahawk Charge" (35192) might also be used in conjunction with them. At least the warrior on horseback appears more like a Plains Indian, but the fellow on foot, even though dressed in buckskin pants and loincloth, wears his hair loose but with a red headband, similar to Navaho's and Apache's - but what do I know? I'm just a white guy!
