This is apparently a new set of rules for the Mexican Revolution just in at OMM. Does anyone have any information?

I had a look at the OMM entry for this, and it seems that the publisher is actually a company called Hoplite Research, run by Manuel Granillo. The rule book isn't actually available yet; it will be released later this month.

Eagle's Prey is the title of an existing set of HR rules covering every conflict in North America from 1820 1888. Presumably then, 'Villa Rides!' uses the same game engine.

I could find no mention of 'Villa Rides!' on the HR website, and there doesn't appear to be a Facebook page.

Does anyone have experience of Eagle's Prey or any of the other numerous HR rule sets covering a broad swathe of history?

Henry, yes Hoplite research just published Villa Rides for the Mexican Revolution. Log in to the villarides@groups.io to download free scenarios and other stuff. We have been releasing rules since 1994. Please feel free to ask any questions on the rules.
