Gringo 40's produces a growing range of larger 28mm figures for the Mexican Adventure. (Plus a larger range covering Mexican wars, in both 40MM and 28mm)

Available: Republican Troops, French Foreign Legion, Belgian Legion, Contra-Guerillas, Soudanese Infantry, and Maximilian's Palace Guard.

Planned: Austrian Legion, Cavalry, Artillery, Generals.

Wargames Foundry has their original 25mm Maximilian Range, plus their later 25mm Mexican and small 28mm Camerone sets in their Old West Range.

The range used to be extensive, but has been cut down a bit and packaged in mixed blister packs. Some Crimean War and Franco-Prussian packs are useful as well.

TVAG has recently returned "Viva Juarez", Richard Houston's old line (of Chris Ferree's sculpts) to production.

A classic range, they are old school 25mm, now being sold in unit packs.
