For Federales and for Revolutionaries? Who makes them, if any?

Thanks

Dan
PS. Is this an accurate depiction?

A very interesting little war. A potential PP range?
If there is no proper range maybe WW1 Russians or British with light kit? PP makes plenty of 15mm traditional Mexicans with sombrero etc. Also PP does a staff car and field guns.

Your pictures look good too.
Good luck!

Maybe some figures for the US troops in the Southwest too?

A scenario of US and Federales against the Revolutionaries would be interesting.

Or an "accidental" war between Federales and US?

Old Glory's (Blue Moon?) Boxer Rebellion Japanese infantry and cavalry would probably work in this scale.

Martin: "A potential PP range?"

That would be fantastic! All the Southwest and Old West terrain we already (table mats, buildings, rock formations, vegetation) could be put to greater use.

Now I feel like watching The Wild Bunch (1969).

I would buy loads of figures if PP did a Mexican rev range.

This could spawn lots of interesting gaming scenarios:

Main problem is US infantry with 'lemon squeezers', possible Eureka WW2 Wake Island Marines with PP heads?

Its a period I've always wanted to do but never made any moves on because of the lack of a dedicated range. I can't bring myself to use wild west Mexicans as Revolutionaries, they just don't look right (For starters they don't even have mauser rifles!)

Carlo, when you say Revolutionaires you're refering to Villistas? Wild West figures with Winchesters, etc would be most appropriate as they would go to war with whatever they could get their hands on. They wouldn't have access to Mausers unless they defeated some Federales and could scavenge their arms or rob a supply train. Villa bought arms from the US when he could find sellers. Part of his rationale for attacking Columbus,NM was that someone had cheated him on an arms deal. So, yes, Im happy to use western type figures for Villistas.

Revolutionaries ditched other weapons for Mausers at the first opportunity, and in the North large quantities were captured, resulting in a high proportion of northern rebels being so armed.

Like any period, to do the Mex Rev properly a dedicated figure range is required, so at the moment this is only possible in 20mm and 28mm.
