This is a unit of Eagle Warriors, one of the elite 'suited' warrior castes of the Aztec army.
I've based them for Basic Impetus, but can remove figures to put together a war and for 'En Garde' skirmish rules. I've used the Impetus 2p base from Warbases.
As for the figures, most are Foundry, with a single Gringos40 model. No because I necessarily prefer Foundry, but their figures come in packs of 6, whereas Gringos40 are individual models.
So, here is the unit, all armed with the Macehuitl obsidian swords.
Here are the figures individually. First the leader of the unit, with back banner. These were used as signals mainly.
Next the sole Gringos40 model. They match pretty well, although the Gringos40 is ever so slightly larger.
This figure is posed very nicely, with some additional feathers.
Chequerboard design on the shield.
Aztec face on the shield.
And the final two figures.
