Have a look at Peter Pig's "AK-47 Republic" series:
http://www.peterpig.co.uk/ak47.html

Eureka Miniatures also has a more modest range, but they usually focus on unsung armies:

Skytrex/Command Decision also has a post-WW2 range:

I usually mix both of them with BF's miniatures for more variations in all my armies. And most of my Indochina troops originate from them ... since they are the only one I know modeling them.
* PP are resin (is that the English word?), but they are very nice.
* Eureka, it depends more on the series: I've had good (mostly) and bad (few).
* Skytrex, I've only ordered there for my Italian colonial army, since they were the only one I knew doing them with the colonial hat ... and they are among the finest 15mm miniatures I've seen.

Was thinking about doing Africa campaign in 6mm for WW2.

Which rule are you planning to use for 6mm? Blitzkrieg Commander?
Your setting is interesting regarding the balance of force, the only issue I foresee at this scale is the terrain.

Kinda wish 6mm was more popular. Then I could get terrain for BattleTech a lot cheaper.

Probably, I was thinking about Fist Full of Tows. Maybe Blitzkrieg Commander.
