I think today will be the day I paint my first unit of Government troops.

Amen to that. I can't decide which force to collect first, Federales or Zapatistas...
I'm hoping to work on my Mex Rev buildings but I've also been scouring the web for decent images of Consolidation 2-8-0 Baldwins ca.1900 that I can scratchbuild that most closely resemble the iconic image of no.'739'... there are sooo many variants out there.
Looking forward to seeing some painted up examples to egg me on...

There are still more packs on the way. The range will include buildings and other useful stuff.
The sombrero troops are about "done" for the moment. The first half government stuff is also about "done".  Sales have been very good, even without the full range and rules.

A friend of mine dubbed his 15mm Ancient Thessalian cavalry 'sombrero heroes' for their very wide brimmed floppy sun hats. Hopefully there will be opportunity to field a few Zapatistas with superlative 'Carlos Fandango' headgear!

I hope they have a good break too.
They do work hard.
Moving to a more restrictive tier is going to be tough on gaming I feel

Now we are all going into Tier 3 & 4 guess play testing will take a back seat for a while, unless we move to the Scilly Islands.
