Chaps,

We are production casting the first wave of Royal Empire infantry ( for a reminder look here http://urbanleadjunkie.blogspot.com/201 ... signs.html ).

We're just going over the final list for wave two of the Royal Empire infantry (enlarging the range of Assault Infantry and Conscripts and wondered if there was anything in particular you'd like?

What is a Gurdan?

I wish the Gas Mask Folk Guns weren't so big and bulky. Oh Well....

yeah, i am not superkeen on the extra handgrip on the top of the gasmask folks guns, but otherwise, looking good.

what i'd like to see. hmm.
snipers would be nice? (i also quite like shoulder mounted rocket troopers, but your current heavy weapon teams are pretty great already)
greatcoat political officers (actually a whole characterpack would be nice, medics, 2ICs, engineers, signalmen, advisor types, and a head honcho fellow)
i'd also be uberkeen on some gasmask wearing bikers (either dirtbike/early soviet motorcycle style, or small quadbike types)

as to other spitballing ideas, hooded infantry for use as cultists (be they machinegod, spikey-gods, multiple armed spacegods, or whatever floats your boat) and a few more generic zombie sculpts (another male and another female mostly, the kids, while cool, look a bit odd when present in large numbers)
I'd also really like to see some sort of large dog, to be used as wolves/hounds/whatever
the other thing i would really like to see someday, would be a dropship along very similar lines to the pelicans from halo. oh lordy would i buy the hell out of those.

We have hooded priests in the form of Empire Paladins http://urbanleadjunkie.blogspot.com/201 ... llman.html and the Prefect Cyberhound which hfas been drawn but isn't on the blog until I fix the A3 scanner in the office (sorry Dom).

Missile Launcher and sniper are great ideas! I also agree on the command squad. Certainly a loader and a spotter would be grand for artillery batteries.

The great coated infantry look great! I hope they're not the only models in the range who will be wearing coats? Some command models for them would be cool.

The Assault infantry will be getting Grav bikes, not sure about the conscripts yet.

Looking really awesome. The handles don't bother me, as long as some of the poses are using them, which I think they are. I have a bunch of siege transports just waiting for something to carry around - and these are it!

I second the artillery/heavy weapon crews suggestion... heartily.

The guns are based on Bren guns, which have that top-handled design:

The guns are also as small as physically possible to cast at 6mm scale, they're notably smaller than GW's guardsmen guns for example.

Well, you can cast smaller, but not without paying for the very best casting quality, which'd jack up the price considerably.
