Does anyone own these minis or have any pics of them? Essex still has none and the Web has been no help either.

They are very much outdated unfortunatelly. I used them in the late 80's before I knew much about Tang armies. But after studying in China. No… nice sculpts but not historically at all I think.

Thank you much. All I needed to know. Too bad, there are several good 15mm lines out there but no 28s.

I'd love to see Tang, 3 Kingdoms Korean and Kofun Japan all done by someone.

The Assault Group's 28mm Tang Chinese might be what you are looking for. I'm not aware of any relevant Korean or Japanese in that scale however.

One of the "Tang" spearmen (based on a John Greer drawing that's actually based on a Northern Dynasties figurine) is illustrated at link

I would join Likui in not recommending them – at least not for their intended purpose.

Essex did recently revamp their 15mm Tang range – I wonder if they're considering doing the same to the 25mm one?

I had heard at some point the AG line was discontinued. Or was that incorrect?

There is nothing on the TAG site that suggests the Tang line being discontinued. Beautiful figures. I'd highly recommend them.

If you want later period, RedBox has just released 4 new Korean cavalry sets to go along with previous foot ones.

They are in 1/72 though.

Alas, while TAG's minis are decent enough it's another incomplete line.

Looks like I may have to do 15mm if I'm ever to get my Tang vs Arab Conquest project done (wah!).
