Does anyone know if Peter Dennis is going to expand his SYW range to British and French?

Not sure if Dennis will come back to this period, as his current Facebook postings show him working on templar knights and naval ships, part of his Rus semi fantasy project. If you do a search on his Facebook page, one of the members are working on what looks to be French and Indian War material. I think this will be similar to the member who cranked out a ton of Aztec and Conquistador sets and is now up for sale on the paperboys site.

It's just amazing what is being done with this paper approach, my current project is 2nd Punic War with the paperboys, happy snipping.

The Paperboys book on the 45 has British WAS infantry (and some cavalry and artillery plus highlanders) which can be used for SYW, as well as French regular infantry that can be modified to represent most French infantry types. A chap called John Sherman has shown how it's done on the Paperboys Facebook page. Many of the French cavalry in the WSS book are not very different from the WAS and SYW types so can be used.

Thank you both for your help!
I aquired the e-book on the "45" which gives me all I need for British and French in the mid 18th century.
