To compliment and fill out their musket range:

1. American Indians skirmishing
2. Cossacks/light cavalry with lance
3. Entrenchments
4. Turks
5. Mounted grenadiers
6. Skirmishers with cap- Loyalists, Austrian light inf, etc
7. Separate command strip with flags in the center
8. Light horse (other than hussars already covered)

That's a good list, specially for the AWI/FIW, though personally I'm hoping they finish up their ECW/TYW range with some more guys in hats (particularly dragoons).

I second your list and would add:

Science Fiction infantry types
Age of Imperialism – India and the Boxer Rebellion

Good catch boy wundyr, I meant to put on cavalry with hat to cover ECW/TYW/LOA/TW but forgot.

My first request would be to re-do the artillery – the current version isn't up to the same standard as the rest.

I'm considering late 17C-early 18C so most of the stuff is covered.

I'd go with a small command strip with a same-sized non command strip to go behind it as I'd like to use 50mm wide bases at most.

Highlanders with some muskets would be good

I like the Turkish idea but you'd need quite a few new codes to field Ottoman armies.

Don't really see how stuff that you'd never need more than a base or two of would work commercially for the manufacturers. Not convinced it is sensible to expect it in 3mm.

To expand on my "guys with hats", that includes skirmishers/dragoons in hats, horse-holders in hats, cavalry in hats, and artillery in hats! And like GildasFacit, if the artillery could be re-done at the same time, that'd be cool too.

Then after that, the funky AWI stuff we don't have yet.

Well, I would prefer the Indians first as it is one code and will fill out both the AWI and the FIW :).
