Great ! Does this mean the (pdf) rules "Fighting for Mexico" will be available soon ? I am looking forward to them !

Very nice looking game (railroad track could stand a paint job for future games but small matter).

I don't care about the Mexican Revolution much but I will be buying some of the figures for my Old West (close enough for my purposes) and 'sort-of-pulpish-but-not' games, especially the vehicles. And, yes, the vehicle paint jobs are inspiring – I will be referencing once I order some up. Waiting on the US mounted figures before ordering.

Many sizes of figures have there high points (and low points, I guess) but it is hard to beat 15 mm for figures large enough to see well and 'small' enough to represent a decent battle on the table without resorting to TooMany:One figure to man ratios. Those photos show the advantage really well.

Wondering if there will be casualty figures in this range or will we have to 'borrow' from the Old West range? Okay either way. Same for civilians? A nice pack of unarmed Mexican senoritas and senoras, well off and peons, would be a nice addition. For that matter, some Soiled Doves would be a good add to the Old West range while I'm at it.

Where did the buildings in the game come from – anyone know?

FM should be out in August as we are now getting some good quality play testing in. As can be seen by the link above.

There will be casualty figures.
Next there are some buildings and cavalry to be done.

Civilians. Possibly

Beautiful looking game, the figures are very nice painted and the terrain really reflects the theatre! Martin's figures are wonderful sculpts, very temping even if I prefer 10mm.

The more stuff PP puts out, the more I am tempted to get back into 15mm.

Get them whilst you can
