Actually they look spot on. Sans the Bowie who needs a knife. I like the new ones. :)

But they look like the Americans ones but with a colour placed over the tunic rather badly.

I agree they don't look good. They look like they are from WWII and not the Alamo. I will change them.

Thanks Bruceswar. I have tried figures like this before. when you scale them down they end up not looking right. I have tried probably around 6 or so different figures sets just like this. I wish they would look like this when they were done. I will see what I can do.

I dunno about the Texan figures.... To me Travis looks like Wolverine to me, and Davy Crockett almost seems a little obscene to me. Mexicans look ok to me. just okay.

Still think you need to add in a representation of the familiar facade of the Alamo, somewhere to be sure.

Thanks RB0. I had the facade in there early on, but it was very intrusive. I always liked it myself. I will see if I can add it back in.

Thanks bro' appreciate that.

I am trying a layout change and should have it posted in a few days to see if it is approved. It combines the legends into one legend at the bottom and opens up the map. It will also help me incorporate a facade of the Alamo into the title. If you want me to post what I have before it is finished let me know.

Seeking to see which version is liked better.
Plus how the new figures look?
Original map

Combined legend map
The reason for this request is because this layout opens the board up and only gives you one place to look for the instructions
I know the glows need worked on and the items in the legend need aligned, but I wanted to see if
this version is liked better before I go too far with it.

GH, this will take a bit longer than a little bit of time to really look at. You have changed the dynamics of the game play a bit. Let mew look into it tomorrow with a fresh head, speak to ian about it and see if we can OK the new layout without too much fuss.

From my opinion, it has not been too dramatic though and the ability to include the façade of the Alamo will negate any problems.
