That so quite the set-up and game!  Well done!

We've played the Alamo in 15mm with the Gettysburg Soldiers gang.   We played the defenders, and came within a die roll of actually winning!

As an aside, Larry (from Gettysburg Soldiers) ended up selling his Alamo set-up and figures to the State of Texas!  :o

I think the Alamo does offer a lot of opportunities for games different to the standard siege scenario.
A sortie to disable Mexican artillery,or to burn down nearby buildings are great games.
As is the attempted final breakout of the garrison.
Then there's also the alternative history aspect Gregory Urbach has written about in his "Custer at the Alamo" books.

That's a really impressive set up.
What size table are you using?
