thanks again WOT  :)
I've not finished here yet  ;)
now I'm wondering if I should have started a 'customising' thread since we might end up discussing abit on what I'm about to add/improve on

you see, I'm adding a general and improving both the 3 foot soldiers now....if you have any pictures, do show me some too

Unfourtuntly I don't have any pictures of Koren soldiers to give you Cheng.
But if you every want really nice, detailed pictures of Japanese soldiers I have plenty. :)

I can't wait to see your general and soldiers Cheng. ;D

I'm still making a few more ashigaru(s) and will be happy to see any colored drawings of Ashigaru(s) in my current 'Samurai Wars' thread or PMed or emailed to me if you please  :)

Ill send you a PM with them soon...
I have one really good picture of Ashigarus that is colored.
It also has early (12th Century?) Samurai armor.
The 12th century being the period I am trying to recreate.

Though the book has lots of 1590s pictures in it too.
(For your Japanese, Korean, Chinese war... ;) )

Cheng, you really do some wonderful conversions.  If you're doing Asian soldiers of the time of the Boxers, the British had a Chinese Regiment too,  The 1st Chinese Regiment sometimes called the Wei-hi-wei Regiment.

These boxers look fantastic, even the temple and the incense container.

Do you have a higher-res photo you could send me?  (Your posted photo is a bit blurry).

Hi Cheng the photo you published is from Osprey's book set during the Taiping Era (1870s).  Granted, not much probably changed.

Have you seen pics of the Taiping generals and their umbrellas?

I should get off my butt and get back into the game...  Wife and Daughter heading to China ahead of me.  Have the next three weeks free...

no...umbrellas??  :D

I should get off my butt and get back into the game...  Wife and Daughter heading to China ahead of me.  Have the next three weeks free... please do come here more often...I'm not too confident without books and opinions  :P...but unlike my Tamiya figures, we PM customisers can easily correct/change dresses for our klickies  :D
