T'ang Chinese, 7-9th C. AD

T'ang Armoured Horse Archer painted and based by Chris Yaro.

China, the "Middle Kingdom," achieved the summit of its military and cultural power during the T'ang Dynasty. Founded by the great Li Shimin, it would go on to cover an era of stability and progress, as well as conquest that expanded its borders even beyond those of the Han Dynasty.

We have sought to represent the Chinese as accurately as possible based on primary sources from the period and wish to thank Duncan Head for his assistance with this line. The bows have been sculpted in the asymmetrical form usually seen for the weapon in this period.

In particular we have gone to some length to assure that our infantry spearmen cover the full variety of tactical options suggested by their depiction in period art. Some use the spear two handed, without a shield. Others have a spear and shield, and finally there are poses of spearmen with archery equipment. It's also possible that all three were used by different infantry formations, possibly regional variations or preferences of their commanders. This allows gamers to choose which interpretation of tactics available in DBMM to use, and all three are perfectly suitable to represent T'ang spearmen in Field of Glory. We've even made armoured spearmen with the ji halberd, for mixing with any of the above types or for anti-cavalry squads as permitted in FoG.
