I could be tempted if it were 10mm....

Sounds good!  :)

Will there be camp followers to portray a unit on the march? Per the illo in the Foundry book?

Some nations had a sort of "highland" guard IIRC? Don't recall the details...

Warhammer Colonial is a very versatile set that served us well locally for a good many years. Price was good at $0.  :D

In the USA, no doubt The Sword and the Flame will be used.
