This would in include extra arms, (such as walking with musket rest or pike at rest), weapons eg swords pistols muskets etc, extra bags and pouches, cups, plates, knives, even poached fowl or rabbits, extra hats, feathers, helmets and Any other bits that could be used for conversions and base etc. there was quite a lot of support for the idea if memory serves and it would be a big seller as an add on I think. Or could be sold in conjunction with other plastic sprues as a modified set, ECW veterans perhaps with one less main sprue than the standard box by the sprue of extras. So you would get 29 plastic mins plus the extras.
I would also like to see more civilians in standard poses, more generic mounted officer types. A trained bands set might be nice also eg musketeers in buff coats, perhaps more fancy better quality equipment.

But I'm no scholar yet either
I'd really like to see an accessory sprue with pouches, bags, haversacks and the like, this would be the easiest way to customise your force.
Also separate arms would allow us to get even more out of the plastic infantry.
Both could be in metal.
However, I strongly feel another plastic box of infantry that could be used for both sides of the ECW and TYW
would sell like hot cakes!
What do you think Warlords?
Hmmm...'Poorly equipped Royalists' have been mention by two of you. Were the Royalists worse off than the Parliamentarians to begin with?
