Hello everyone

Please someone knows a specific rule for 'The Mexican Adventure 1862-1867', as there was the rule 'Furia Francese' by Clive Mc Leod for the Franco-Austrian War of 1859 and 'They Died for Glory' for the Franco-Prussian war of 1870-1871 and certainly rules of this kind for the Crimean War?

What I want is to play the battles with 25/28/30mm figures ,as I do with the other wars of the french second Empire,not for the skirmish …

Thank you

Hey Breton,
We used Black Powder for our last few games.

Yes D6 Junkie,but there is not actually a good old rule very specific to the old for the Mexican adventure for now I only saw rules on the Phantom Crown?

I believe The Sword and the Flame has a variant for Mexico;you can call the 20 man unit anything you want as far as I am concerned.

Hi Breton,

Have you seen this AAR on Puebla?
TMP link
And this one on Camerone?

These games were fought using "Bloody Big BATTLES!" (BBB).

Maximillian Rules are a free download here:

There are a couple of others there, too.

Thanks to all.

The Maximilian Rules by Mark Shearwood on 'The Mexican Adventure or: The Phantom Crown' has the interesting look, but I could never find the size of the bases for the kind of figures that I possess ???

It seems that Wargames Illustrated published in the past a rule for the Mexican Adventure Rules?

Which Wargames Illustrated?

Stosstruppen I just bought the Santa Ana rule because I think it's the closest thing I'm looking for this conflict …

Stosstruppen You know it?

I have played them and I do own them. They are a fun set. Surdu2005 that responded above is the author.

I saw it, I waited for it!

Paskal Supporting Member of TMP15 Jul 2017 11:08 p.m. PST

I wait for it but it is not ready to arrive also in the meantime I would like that those who own it tells me the size of the bases of the figurines of 25/30 mm for the period 1862/1867 of this rule.

Thank you

The Santa Ana Rules is the best rules for the Maximilian adventure.ok?

cturnitsa Supporting Member of TMP28 Sep 2017 8:43 p.m. PST

Santa Anna Rules are good.

We have enjoyed using Chassepot and Needlegun (there is a Mex/Am War set of variant charts that comes with the rulebook – or at least it did when I bought mine).

But for this French second empire war ,anyway apart:
Sebastopol, Sadowa & Sedan – 19th Century Warfare – 1970
by J. G. Kew & A.M. Roth T.J. Halsall (Author), there is nothing else …
