And yet, I could think of some specialised cavalry for SYW western theatre:
Buckenburg carabiniers - very cool unit in cuirass and Spanish-style helmet.
French dragoons in crested helmet (many late war units)

Greetings

Given Dave and Co. have to at least break even it might be a good idea if we could come up with a list of troop types, how common they were and what figures can be used for them from the existing Pendraken ranges - this way the commercial gaps will be more obvious.  Obviously there's a cross over with the War of Austrian Succession anyway.

Regards

Ok I agree with Kustenjaeger
I will start with an obvious need of French Infantry with turnbacks which are in my opinion one of the most urgent needs. I would like to notice, that there were Foreign troops and/or Guards or Grenadiers Royaux present in almost every battle SYW French army took part in (and in considerable numbers). In adition, there isnt any replacement for them in the existing ranges. Till now I used SYW Russian infantry in coats to make them but these are not very good for it because of sabres instead of swords, other leatherwork and belts and command figs, too. Making French infantry in turnbacked coats would fill the gap that probably causes reluctance of some customers to collect otherwise exellent Pendraken French SYW range.

A french army is probably what I want to do after the Prussians.
Always had a weak spot for the french armies of the 18thcent.
So turnback coats is obviusly needed.
But more infanteri poses would be really welcome too.

I'd like a small staff stand with a general in a chair and a few aids on foot.  Would go nicely with the carriage.

The French w/ turnbacks are definitely going to get done, there's been so many requests for them.  The seated general w/ aides is an intereresting one as well.

Nice, but this young lady might make a more suitable companion for the General

The horses of my Austrian limber team have saddles for a postilion rider, but nor the rider proper.  It would be nice to have a few with riders, or an optional rider figure.  Not a big deal, it is a pretty complete range, but it would be nice.
