I wonder if Wargames Atlantic would consider doing samurai with futuristic samurai weapons and cool full helmet mask head options?

Sooner or later absolutely. I think Death Fields Samurai were even an option in one of the polls.

For a rocket/missile launcher i really think a more rpg/panzerfaüst 3 style like KidCuluthu's conversion. I mean a larger crew served ATGM launcher would additionally be great, but those are more readily avaliable elsewhere.

not as far as i know

(they are for use with multiple kits no mention of a stand alone release in the release schedule https://wargamesatlantic.com/pages/release-schedule but worth emailing WGA to see if they'll do them in the same way as the cannon fodder accesory arm/weapon sprue)

I still think it's not that good of a sprue tbh, it really could've used more variety instead of being 21 identical shields. Maybe some would come with decorations, studs, some metal and some wooden with metal reinforcements, maybe 3 of each version. Any variation would be nice, tbh

If my sprue squinting is correct the Afghan box has 4 shields for 5 guys, so a box of 40 gives me 32 shields.

And 40 conscripts for my Tallarn

You could augment the kit with metal shields from wargames foundry. I have always augmented my kits with additional kit and historical metal parts makers are a great resource to make any kit go further(my armed hobbitry (which are yet to be painted) are armed with all manner of medieval polearm, from glaive to hafted morningstar mostly from the assault group's renaissance range. They look awefully great. A band of hardy hobbit militia). Wargames atlantic has to make its kits versitile to fit a wider audience and because we just love versitile kits but that means each sprue has a limited number of each part or detail.
They do a great job cramming in what they can but they can only put on a limited number of parts.

Look forwards to seeing your work on them. Sounds like a fun project.

That's an excellent idea. Even better when they are available below retail at places like Mcdougall Designs!

I'm speaking for my side of the pond.

I would assume that US shipping will always be before UK now we're not awaiting the goods on a slow boat from China.
