That is exactly what I thought when I first saw these figures. I thought they would be absolutely perfect for the old Twilight: 2000 role-playing game. They made me want to dig out my old modules and run a campaign again. Not sure I'm going to be able to find any players interested in that kind of role-playing anymore... but maybe I can use them as a source of inspiration for a series of linked skirmish scenarios.
Sounds terrific. If I had the opportunity I would be playing rp table top rpg all the time. Paranoia for instance!
