The Ching / Manchu Dynasty Range

15mm Pewter Figurines

(Foot = 8 figures, Mounted = 4 figures, unless otherwise stated)

The Jurchen ,a Tungusic people originally from southern Siberia migrated to north-eastern China and in the early twelfth century destroyed the Khitan Liao dynasty to establish the Jin empire.They overran virtually all northern China but were then driven out in 1234 by the invading Mongols. In1592 the Japanese Samurai invaded Korea and the Jurchen allied with the Ming Chinese to counter the invasion. Thereafter, in the early 17th century the Jurchen,now calling themselves the Manchu overthrew the weakened Ming to proclaim the Ching dynasty, Chinas' last. Who zapped the Japanese? Who mangled the Ming? - the Manchu!
