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:

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).
