Koryo Koreans

Post by David Kuijt » Sat Jul 27, 2019 2:05 am

Does anyone make 15mm Koryo Koreans?

I'm trying to refurb my legacy Koryo list, which I cobbled together from a number of ranges (Grumpy Yi, Essex Mongols, Falcon and Essex and Grumpy and I'm not even sure what for the foot). I need a bunch of figs to refurb the Koryo and run it in Triumph, but nobody seems to make a specifically Koryo range. I've tried the usual suspects (Khurasan, Outpost, Essex) without anything that looks good. In particular I want good Kwanggun bowmen and spearmen, and the Grumpy Yi and Essex Mongols that made up my old 3Cv are not very good for the options for the Kwanggun horsemen.

Old Glory has some Koreans but not sure what period they even fall into.

Those might be okay? The armored mounted troops look like the Yi dynasty (which follows the Koryo). I don't know enough to be certain, but they've got a lot of guerrilla codes, and guerrilla warfare was endemic during the period of Mongol domination, which is part of the Koryo period. They also have armored infantry that I could use as the Kwanggun spear.

The problem is the usual one with Old Glory -- I don't want to buy 24 armored infantry to use 4 of them as one stand of Kwanggun spear. And another 24-piece bag to use 3 as Guerrilla light spear, and another 24-piece bag to use 2 as Guerrilla bowmen (skirmishers).

Yes, the old glory math :)

Plus they tend to be some "carving required" figures as well.

I'll look at Irregular.

Essex new Koreans are very late; I worry that 16th century fashion is pretty far from 9th-13th century fashion in armor or clothing.

Naismith does Goryeo Koreans in 15mm. They are pretty nice, and will work specially well for kwanggun troops, but they are single-pose. My army is made out of them.

Thanks!

Do you have a website? How does one acquire them, or see pics?

You can order them here:

There are no pictures on the website, but someone provided a Photobucket album in this thread:

Not all codes are shown, but there are pictures of several Korean codes; you'll have to cross-reference the code with the image name.
