GOOD MORNING (MY TIME)!
since most folks i know play TSATF, SPACE1889:SOLDIER'S COMPANION, COLONIAL ADVENTURES, and PATROLS IN THE SUDAN, which have basically 20 man sections, platoons, and companies, including command, i think that WF deffo needs to make multi=part plastic command sprues.
GENERIC LINE INFANTRY COMMAND BOX consisting of Commanding Officer, 1-2 Junior Officers, Surgeon, Quartermaster/Commissary, RSM/CSM, at least 2 SGTS, at last 4 CPLS, 3 Musicians, and 5 Soldiers for the Battalion Color Party/Ammo runners/Medical Orderlies. a box of 20 infantry bods with assorted noggins, assorted headgear, bugles/drums, medical orderly packs, 4-6 ammo boxes that could be carried by two men, with needed specialist limbs, etc. flagpoles are so easily made from 1/32 piano wire as to be unnecessary.
thus 1 box of command and 2 boxes of line infantry will give the players using the most popular colonial rules enough soldiers for a company with a few spares left over for wotever they desire them for.
1 box command and 2 boxes line infantry would also provide SOLDIER'S COMPANION gamers with the core for battalion command and companies w/ command, too.
win-win as i sees it!
