Not sure I already commented.

These guys look fantastic.  :o Best of all is the bearded guy with the wide-brimmed black hat.

I didn't notice--did you try customizing the flail?  A lot of the Korean generals fought with flails roughly similar to "numb chucks" (I recreated by removing the ball-and-chain from two knight flails then connecting the handles together).

The flail let the mounted men wack foot soldiers downward across the skull.

Your men look completely better than mine.  I may imitate you to build up my Korean army.

good suggestion Tim...I'm running short of katanas anyway....and one of my boxers is using 2 balls and chain so I must search for the 2 sticks left behind...maybe its with my ninja

I may imitate you to build up my Korean army. please do Tim....there's nobody else making koreans so it'll be a welcome sight...and playmobil definitely wont be making one  ;)

"you never know"  ;) I'll always say  ;D
I started like you...my ACW northerners had to have even same hair...after a while, I decided to make sure no two faces look alike(combination of different hair & face) but until today, they all still stand in the same pose, have exactly the same pouches on the same side...not life like but then thats how we like them...I remembered you said yours had different hair/face too right?   ;)

Yeah, a few of my people
(at least the next Samurai I will buy)
will have different hair styles.
(There will be 6 of them, one will have the "Samurai hair",
2 will have Regular Black Hair, and 3 will have Long Black Hair.)
And I have 4 or 5 different faces. :)

But like you they will have all the same armor, And the same weapons.
(When I start buying them in bulk they will have different weapons,
But these first few will all have spears.) ;D

I will also have a second and third and fourth style of armor
when I start buying them with the new Specials. ;D ;D ;D (CANT WAIT!!!)

Oh that reminds me!
I will have one person really different from the others. (Other then my leader. ;) )
He will be the standard bearer, he will half the half Egyptian armor, and the white belt they have.
And on his back he will carry a Flag! ;D
He will also have a top knot hair style. :) (A simplified one...)
