It´s always a pleasure to follow your figure-project, although your painter-dress seems me really very surprising.
Did you get inspirations also from movies? Some soldiers like the one with the bamboo-spear are remaining me to some film scenes.

This kind of weapon is recorded in ancient books, such as Mao yuanyi(茅元仪)'s《武备志》and Qi jiguang(戚继光)'s《纪效新书》 . 8)

Great news indeed to see all these east Asian sets but the reviews are in on Plastic Soldier Review and some disappointment - riders not fitting horses and very tall men:

http://www.plasticsoldierreview.com/Index.aspx

On the plus side some nice sculpting (not matched by their earlier Chinese and Korean infantry - would be nice if they retooled those)

Also to be noted is PSR struggled to find good sources for historical accuracy particularly for the Koreans - perhaps lirui can help them? :-)

Hi Durruti
I've been very busy recently, and I'll write comments about these 7 sets later. First glance, Korea's Historical research was correct, especially on armored half sleeves and particular weapons(flail).

Well I could not find any of your figures on Plastic Soldier Review, even when using your link.
However putting this aside now I like the latest figures for display they look real cool in fact. :thumbup: BB

:-D Dear Beano Boy:
I found redbox had released 7 sets (72117-72123) of the same topic so I added links.That's none of my concern
Some of my figures already be made of metal , could not appear on PSR.
Thanks for your support and care

In October 4-5, 2018
I went to “海龙屯” joined historical reenactment. :-D

Campaign of Bozhou 播州之役:
The Bozhou (播州)rebellion occurred in Guizhou and spread to Sichuan and Huguang between 1589 and 1600. After the Korean war ended(Japanese invasions of Korea 1592–1598).
Scale and military strength were far exceeded than Imjin war.
Rebel forces 140,000 VS Ming army 240,000

Hailongtun Castle 海龙屯
Hailongtun (Chinese: 海龙屯; literally: "Sea Dragon Castle") is a ruined fortress on the Longyan Mountain, in Hailongtun Village, Gaoping Town, Zunyi City, Guizhou Province, China. It was the stronghold of the Bozhou Tusi until its destruction by the Ming dynasty after the Bozhou rebellion. Hailongtun is an example of a well-preserved medieval castle in China. It is one of the three Tusi sites designated by the UNESCO as a World Heritage Site on July 3, 2015.[1]

Hailongtun was established in 1257 during the Southern Song dynasty. It served as the stronghold of the Bozhou Tusi (native chieftdom), ruled by the Yang family, from the Southern Song to the Ming dynasty. In the 28th year of the Wanli reign (1600), the Ming defeated the Bozhou rebellion, with the last tusi Yang Yinglong committing suicide and the castle was burned down.

---------------The above is a brief explanation------------------

:-) :-) Blue armor with black-bordered , helmet with red and black horse-tails, that was me :-) :-)

You all look fabulous in your uniforms and you are a very impressive sight charging towards me with spears like that. What a treat for the tourists who visited on the same day you guys were there! :-D
