Legion Foot Infantry

Command for previous Dragoons.
Indians : Iroquois and Stockbridge

Given the limited time Clib can spend sculpting AWI, I would suggest:
Queens Rangers Command - definitely !
Legion Foot Infantry - as above
Highlanders firing, Highlanders advancing  - why ? we've got them marching. Isn't it enough ? I would prefer light boobs in roundabouts skirmishing instead.
Command for previous Dragoons - good idea, but we can swap heads with new addition and not waist horse dollies that would serve to produce LoA long awaited cavalry
Indians : Iroquois and Stockbridge - yes ! I know that there are nice figures in FIW line, as well as Old Glory ones, but I suppose that new Clib's sculpts would surpass everything done to this date

Moreover
- Hessian artillery or at least information if they will be produced (if not I'll adapt Brits)
- British line in short coats firing line
- heads in different headgear as discussed already (for head swaping)

And most impotant thing - the complete list of future releases.

In order not to confuse Clib shouldn't we be sticking to the priority list established here ?

You are right Goat Major, but thread you pointed degenerated somewhat, I think.
Maybe it needs a general cleaning or at least an update.

The British Legion infantry, you can use early British Lt infantry or Saratoga infantry from the current range. Hessian artillery, hopefully Clib will get around to these eventually. In the meantime, I converted my artillerymen to represent the Hesse Hanu crews during the Saratoga campaign. Simply by making tiny pom poms out of milliput and gluing them to their hats, before undercoating. I would post some pics, but my digital camera is rubbish.

With the release of AWI dragoons, this gives us more options. The british Legion can also be painted up as the Queens Rangers Dragoons, Armand's legion and Lee's Legion. Without the carbines, if you want to be ultra authentic. The British dragoons in tarletons can also be painted up as the 4th Continental Lt Dragoons. Hope that gives some food for thought.

Light Bob command would be a useful addtion !

Re British Legion Infantry.  I am guessing that requests for specific figures for the Legion is due to the assumption that they wore Tarleton helmets, like the dragoons. All the accounts I have read make no mention of this. IMO,in all probabilty they wore a form of light infantry cap !

AFAIK they wore kind of "chain helmet", so they can be modelled using existing pack.
If anybody wants them in tarletons it's easy to swap heads.

I personally so a lot of conversions, but I would'n like to make my own hessian artillerymen only to discover that Pendraken released separate pack of them. The same apply to Hessian generals.
This is why I ask for complete list of future AWI releases.

And current command pack could be converted to fit previous British dragoons in horsehair helmets.
So I think that  we don't need any more cavalry packs.

Anyway, skirmishing poses of Brits in roundabouts (with their own command) would be nice. Current pack of marching poses doesn't fit my vision of light infantry.

i believe there is no strong evidence at all for British Legion light infantry uniforms. I painted up the chain helmeted light infantry in green and they look absolutely fine. Tarleton wearing infantry would be nice but i think that there are other priorities (such as the skirmishing light bobs as MacieK says)

I suppose it will always be work in progress, especially with clib working on other ranges. However, using existing dollies with different heads should speed up the process

How about the following:

Command pack roundabouts? (I've been waiting a while for this).

GB Artillery in Slouch hat
American artillery in shirt sleeves

Hesse-Cassel Jagers with Amusettes? ( yeah i know straight from another range starting  with P!)
