Photos of the game here link

All "54mm" figures from a number of makers, all converted to/painted for Mexican Revolution. Mostly (95%) plastic with the odd metal single piece here and there (eg Irregular artillery). Scratch-built buildings and scenic items. Squad-TODD rules (SW's own). Good fun game at a great show.

Game will feature in up-coming Wargames Illustrated Skirmish Wargaming Special.

Great looking game! What did you use for the regulars?

Inspirational, and really quite beautiful!

Excellent, the Mexican Revolution is a greatly unappreciated conflict. Nice job.

Thanks for the kind words.

Federales from from Airfix WWII Italians and Japanese, Armies In Plastic Japanese, Boers and Spanish-Americans with head swaps eg pith helmets from AIP British Colonials, and minimal other conversion touches. Rurales from Britains Mexicans and theirs and Airfix Cowboys (though I am planning to replace these 30+ year old figures with conversions from Weston's Mexican Bandits as they are such nice figures).

Ditto Constitutionalists, as they were pretty well uniformed too (mostly ex-USA), painted in a different shade of khaki!

The MR is a potentially great wargames period, spanning older style warfare and the start of really modern stuff.

The game was a prelude/'building-game' for Attack Devizes later this year when we will do the Battle of Zacatecas proper with a load more troops.
