Has anyone actually played these BoB rules? They seem to have come with a minimum of fanfare. What are the mechanisms? How about the basing? Command and Control? Vehicles?

I've got a bunch of BoB Bloody Baron's forces and Warlord Chinese sitting in a box raring (sp?_ to go and am wondering if this is the set, or whether the new title upcoming from Osprey will be the way to go.

Are they stand alone set of rules or do you need a copy of Back of beyond rules to use them?

I had them for about 2 weeks then sold them on Ebay. They are ok but nothing outstanding. If I remember rightly units were 10-16 figures with one d6 thrown for each figure firing hitting on a 4+ with no Save rolls, so fast bloody games I expect, thats the type of thing they are. WG Great War are a better idea if you like rolling dice. The pictures were nice though.

If this ruleset is, as has been asserted elsewhere, an improved version of CLA, how come it's usually described as a skirmish set, which CLA isn't?

Would it translate well to The Mexican Revolution (please, opinions only from those with some familiarity with the MR)?
