I remove my hat to a master modeller. Your work here is just superb. wonderful work with greenstuff and painted with a rare exactitude that feels reminiscent of the very fine Japanese lacquerwork during the Edo period. I would add I have never seen a better use of complementary colors. Just exquisite. Cheers, Besssiere. :yeah:

This is my favourite army blog on this entire website. I save all the images for my own reference for when I will make my own medieval Koreans / Chinese. So jealous of your custom sculpts, still praying 3D printing will make great miniatures like these readily available for the public at some point. Very neat painting, historically accurate, incredibly inspiring!

This period is not of great interest to me but the work you've done certainly makes checking it out worthwhile. Always inspiring, excellent work.

Today I would like to introduce the main Sengoku daimyo Who's army fighting in the battle of Byeokjegwan


Image
Tachibana Muneshige
(December 18, 1567 ~January 15, 1643)
His army was the fiercest in the battle and caused great damage to the Ming army

↓↓So you see why I drew the black and white flag :xd:
Image
Image

His army is noted for its bravery in Japan, known as about three thousand troops. After battle, only 1132 men left 《Japanese War History Korean war》, and the Tachibana army did not take part in any recorded battles after that.


Image
Image
Image
Image
Gold foil peach shaped helmet
"Peach pocket" most famous is Tachibana Muneshige's "Golden Armor" troops.
before the battle [Tachibana in the future in the Korean campaign]Tachibana Muneshige created about 200 gold foil peach pocket, the purpose is to show the discipline and military power of Tachibana family.

This helmet is influenced by Western armor helmet. Because the western helmet protrudes from the center, it is regarded as peach-shaped by the Japanese, so this helmet is collectively called "peach-shaped helmet".The vertical rim and smooth surface in the center of the helmet make it less vulnerable to swords, spears, bows and arrows. In addition, the peach helmet is light in weight and activity up convenient.
As for the origin of "peach shaped helmet", modern Japanese armour scholars thought that were brought by Portuguese and Spanish in Japan during the Warring States Period, should have imitated the rare imported helmet as helmet of the junior warrior.



Image
Image
Image
The gold peach shaped helmets of the tachibana family are now hanging in two rows in the corridor of the " Tachibana Historical Museum " hall, quite spectacular!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Coincidentally, I have one peach shaped helmet at home ↓↓ :-D
Image
Image
Next, I will transform and paint a lot of gold peach helmets ;-) ;-) ;-)

After so many years on this forum
Let me come out and introduce myself
:-)

First of all, you might ask why am I interested in this Imjin war

Yes, I'm very interested. This project has been going on for almost five years.
Imjin war ,It's very famous and meaningful in Korean history, far-reaching.A war of three nations.

My paternal grandfather was a PLA soldier fighting against the US in the Korean War,and my maternal grandfather was a Notrh Korean soldier, 8)

May peace be with the world forever, and when unified Korea in the future :xd:

↑ ↑ I wore my collection of armor , The Ming dynasty’s border troops

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Image
Image
↑ ↑ I wore the Korean armor ,low order military officer

Image
I'm working on this armor to enhance the details
Notice the dragon on the shoulder in the blue circle,These were unique to Korean armor.
Many people can't tell the difference between Ming armour and Korean armour.The easiest thing to do is look at the sleeves and shoulders

You have shown me how Asian uniforms were every bit the equal of Napoleonic Europe in aesthetic terms. I am very familiar with Japanese armor but had not seen Chinese and Korean outfits. Thank you for exposing me to a period and style i was rather ignorant of. History has many pleasant surprises for the curious.

This is very cool. I really liked the designs of Korean armour, I stopped by Seoul last year and the museums were fascinating.

It's different when it's personal isn't it? A lot of miniatures are science fiction and fantasy and people create all kinds of different periods but modelling your own history gives it an extra dimension, and I'm not sure how biases can reflect in miniatures but it's not something I've really considered.

You know a lot of the old images don't work anymore, but if you would ever compile the old posts with pictures into a blog I would read it. From what I've been told, the Osprey's on Ancient and Medieval China are inaccurate and I just get all my info from online research and such.

I've actually found it quite difficult to find English sources on Korean forces in the Imjin war, such as the Righteous armies. I feel like I'm scrapbooking across the internet which isn't ideal. One thing I can't work out at all was how common was dual wielding swordsmen? The martial reenactments at the tourist spots are cool and I'd love to remake it in mini form.
