I have bought several boxes of soldiers to game a battle of the Mexican War.
I'm planning on gaming my favourite battle of the war, which is Palo Alto.
Of all the battles of the war, which one is your favourite? There are so many interesting ones to choose from, but Palo Alto is still the one I enjoy reading about the most.

We have done Buena Vista a few times – interesting challenges for both sides; we have a scenario for Fire & Fury if you are interested

Buena Vista for me. Colorful battle with lots of interesting units. After that, its the battle of San Pasqual.

I would say Palo Alto, but there are several great battles. Each is a little different making for interesting wargame battles. I am working on terrain for Monterey as well as more Mexican Militia for Buena Vista.
