Projector advice for touring band

I'm new here, and have done a lot of reading/searching around but to no avail. Apologies if this topic has been tackled in a previous thread.

I'm heading out on tour with a band soon and am looking to buy two or three projectors that will be part of the stage kit. I'll be running Modul8 from a Macbook Pro and using a Matrox Triplehead2go to give me the three outputs I need. I want to keep a flexible setup as the venues are all sorts of shapes and sizes – I'll be projecting either onto existing architecture (I also use Madmapper) or screens onstage.

Can anyone point me at any projectors that have a good enough distance to image size ratio to be situated on the stage ( afew feet from the surface being projected on) but will still give a fairly decent image size (1.5 metre height or larger)? As with all musicians there's a limited budget so any cheaper options would be greatly appreciated. I'm based in the UK by the way.

Thanks very much!
