Wow! Talk about obscure! Not knowing a damn thing about that conflict, or geographical era of the time, I'm probably wrong, but the Foundry do sell a couple of books for the Chinese and Burmese, with exactly what you ask for.

Except that the books are for the 19th century. I've no idea whether the armies would have changed that much over that century, so I apologize in advance for my ignorance.

There's Michael Fredholm's "Eight Banners and Green Flag: The Army of the Manchu Empire and Qing China, 1600-1850" link looks to be out of print, though, the £40.00 GBP amazon's only sller is asking is a lot more than the original price

A fascinating question and I too am curious to see whatever may be suggested. There is of course the thread under products about the Khurasan range – In general I have found that by googling various variations on a theme you can sometimes find relevant images – there are a number of scrolls showing the Qing army – either on review or on the march (one was auctioned in Hong Kong over a decade ago and sold for several million HKD!!!!) There was an auction catalogue – I think from Sotheby's HK – which had some illustrations. Good luck with your researches!

Ooops – it was more millions than I thought! Bloody Hell!

There are a couple of others – some from the following century – if you google Sotheby Catalogue Qing Dynasty Army – and look at the images..
