There is a good chance this will align with a new Fire and Fury Mexican War supplement.

Saw this on an email. Very much looking forward to the release, haven't seen their cavalry but theninfantry are very nice and mix in with my existing collection. Will definitely be buying these….

Fantastic news. I really like Good Ground figures and buildings for ACW and now I can anticipate some great terrain as well as their great track record on producing complete ranges.

Great news.

And please tell me that SOMEONE will make Flying Artillery . . .

If Bill Moreno is behind it, I'm sure EVERYTHING will get done, down to the last surprising detail. Take a look at how complete his ACW range is.

A preliminary plan for the Mexicans, from a comment on the facebook group:

What I envision is a release every other month. So, here is what I would suggest. All initial releases to be in Marching Poses. I will modify my existing US figures to do the Yanks and these wil begin to appear in November-December time frame.

Release One – Mexican Line Infantry Marching – 4 Figures in double breasted frocks and Shakos (perhaps one in Fatigue cap , one in camp Hat) at various shoulder arms positions

Mexican Line Infantry Command with a single flag bearer, a drummer and an officer

A total of seven figures around mid February to be released

Release Two – Mexican Light Infantry as above in Double-Breasted frocks and shakos as above but drummer replaced by hornist

A total of seven new figures to be released in Mid-April

Release Three – Four Mexican Gunners in double breasted frocks and shakos

Four Mexican Militia in a mix of Sombreros and Fatigue Caps No Command

Four new figures to be released mid-June

Mexican Line Cavalry – I propose doing four basic horse figures with a separate rider to keep the cost down to a reasonable level.

Mexican Line Cavalry will include four mounted, two each with sword and lance

Mexican Line Cav officer, bugler and flag bearer

Three Mounted Colonels/Brigadier Officer Types

Ten new figures and four horse figures to be released mid-August

Mexican Jalisco Lancers – Four unique poses all with lance in their unique uniform

Officer, flag bearer Bugler

Seven new figures and four horse figures to be released mid-October

Mexican Tulancingo Cuirassier as above to be released Mid-November

Mexican 1st Line Cav in Helmets also to be used as Lite Mounted Regiments of Mexico. As above to be released mid- January

Mexican Zappadores in fur hat and Frocks (4 figures, Officer, drummer and flag bearer

(2019 releases will include)

Hussars of the Guard of the Supreme Power

Grenadier Guard of the Supreme Power

Battalion San Blas

Limber horses and riders for the Mexicans with Oxen Teams

Moving into the next year we will do firing poses for the infantry starting with the lights. I will ask Toby Barret to do the guns and limbers. Please let me know your thoughts.

Flying artillery is one if my personal favorites and this WILL get done!
