I believe they refer to themselves as ninnies.

The figures won't be a major issue - use WWI minis - but the vehicles will. I have found a couple of really nice Tripods via Shapeways, but one's too big & one's too small...  :(

.... and the third walked away with the prizes (but only in Devizes, I believe).

Use the Pendraken tripods as err, tripods? Not the same style, but nice mini's nonetheless.

Vehicles - I'd just sub in the WW1 tanks, possibly adding in the Inter War vehicles for variety. If you're not using the "real" mini's, then as long as you're happy with the look of the proxies it's fine, I would think...

Trouble maker games do some tripods as well

That is a nice one, problem is, although it says 10mm scale, there seems to be no indication of size. As far as I know, the only height given in the original text was "taller than the tallest pine tree".

The two I have are
https://www.shapeways.com/model/606590/extraterrestrial-tripod-war-machine.html?modelId=606590&materialId=6
which is a lovely steampunky design, but a mere 55mm tall, and so possibly undersized for pine trees...
and
https://www.shapeways.com/model/173547/martian-war-machine-kit-large-catcher.html?modelId=173547&materialId=6
which is a beautiful design, and closest I've ever seen to the original description, but a mighty 150mm tall, and so a bit big for 10mm scale!

Brigade miniatures do some nice ones, may just have to check the scale...

The Brigade Models "Olympians" are 6mm scale and have a number of different walkers. Nice figures but a bit small for this I think. Tripod is maybe 40mm tall as I recall.

Troublemaker games have told me that their tripods are about 6cm tall depending on pose
