    Great face, Kim! (y)

    But harquebus in Heian period? :eek: Are you sure you didn't get mixed up because as far as I know, the Heian period (794-1192) is much too early for firearms. But then I can be wrong.

    In any case looks like a very interesting figure.

    Cheers,

    Hi Quang

    I think you could be right, I think that the Portugese brought such firearms into Japan in 1548 and the Shimazu were the first to realy see the benefits of using such firearms (matchlock) and by 1600 they were very accomplished at using them, and were making their own versions throughout Japan, but I may be wrong....

    Hello Dave,

    I think there's a mix-up in the denomination because the clothing/armour is not Heian neither.

    But then WE could be wrong. :lol:

    Thanks all gus,^^
    I'm sorry,I think Heian period is a problem.
    I listened it by Seil.
    But I'll ask and check to Seil models,and will edit it tomorrow.
    Thank you very much.

    Hello all the guys!!

    Sorry for the mix up regarding ascertaining in historical age.
    The following is what I heard from Seil Models ;
    "Arquebus was introduced in Japan in 1543 by Portuguese merchants, and Oda- Nobunaga made the best use of it for the military purpose.
    Therefore, the figure this time belongs to the age of late Japanese civil war (the late period of Senkoku Era 1467~1573) Azuchi Momoyama(1573~1603), not the early Heian times."
    Anyhow, please pardon me on all the confusion this may cause and thanks for your advices.

    You did a great painting on the figure. I really like your face colour.
    As you paint in oils i'm very curious how you managed the face.
    Can you share it with us.
