The latest green from Steve Barber is that of a  Vietnamese village conscript 1820-1835 armed with matchlock, the uniform was based around an illustration kindly sent to me via a Vietnamese contact

At a pinch, the hat should a regular salako,however lose the PLUME and you could poss use the figure as an armed villager from Northern Vietnam perhaps of Chinese Miao origin

I would stress he was designed for the Siamese Vietnamese war of 1835

Byblos , Interesting to note that at the bombardment of Hue in 1883 all of the Vietnamese defenders are described as only using muzzle loading guns of all eras

What a great looking range of miniatures on an unusual topic!

You mention that the range is designed to cover the 16th to the the 19th century - am I right in thinking that all the figures without firearms would be suitable to represent the first Toungoo empire of the 1500's? I'd love to play out some of their border skirmishes against the Ming

Here is the latest offering from Steve Barber a Nguyen regular (1840s-1870s) in plain dress armed with an early percussion musket, hair/pigtail tied up in turnam
