Wargame Figure Sites: for now concentrating on Wild West or Mexican Revolution figures.
 

Copplestone Castings: The site for Mark Copplestone's stunning, and very useful, 28mm figures.
Eureka Miniatures:
See the 'Civilian' and 'Mexican' lines (which I can no longer find on their new web site.)
Outpost Wargames: An actual line of Mexican Revolution Figures
Old Glory: Most of the PIM (Pershing In Mexico) line has now been released. The sculpting of the US cavalry and infantry is OK. The sculpting of the Villista cavalry and Federale infantry in the 'BEF Style cap' is very good. The quality of the sculpting for the Villista infantry varies widely, but there are still some good figures in the pack. The Spanish American War Spanish Inf. make pretty good Carrancistas if you paint the hat to look like something other than the straw thing it's supposed to be. Also, the Boxer Rebellion Japanese inf. are a pretty good starting point for Federale inf. or dismounted cav. wearing the 'Mexican Kepi.'
Reviresco's Mexican Revolution: The Federales are in the transitional uniform from 'blue with stovepipe shako' to 'khaki with BEF style cap. The revolutionary Model T ford looks very nice.
Wargames Foundry: See the 'Old West' and 'Victorian' lines. Franco Prussian French infantry, when not wearing the traditional greatcoat, make an excellent starting point for Federale conversions, as do Franco Prussian Jaegers when trying to recreated early Federale dismounted cavalry in the model 1898 blue uniform.
West Wind Productions: See the 'Cowboy Wars' line.

Pancho Villa Home Page: The name says it all, but some very 'entertaining' if sensationalist stories about Mexico's most famous cavalry commander.

Any material on early 20th century dirigibles is interesting, but read up on Mr. Knabenshue, who has become a major NPC in our campaign.

The Encyclopedia of the Roman Emperors. Pay particular attention to the 'Battle Index.'

The Hong Kong Society of Wargamers: Another suitable outpost in the (former) empire of Wargame Weenies around the world.

When you click on the translation button you'll automatically enter the site, but in English instead of German. There is information and images pertaining to Germany's place in European History, a wealth of information on the Imperial Fleet, and some great stuff on the 'Protected Areas.' (Germany's colonies)
John Jenkins Designs: Colonial river craft, ancient Chinese (perfect for DBM), and some spectacular 'Horror' figures. Also an excellent line of 54mm Seven Years War figures,which the sculptor claims are 'toy soldiers,' but that seem a bit too detailed to be lumped into that category.

The Melik Society: The aim of the Melik Society is to advance public awareness of Anglo-Sudanese history in the period 1883-1899 and subsequently, through the restoration and preservation of the river gunboat Melik and the paddle steamer Bordein
