Some time ago, Thomas Chen posted an image of Ming soldiers at or around the time of the Imjin war. They were dressed in what looked to be colour-coded, ankle length coats of brigandine. Some of them have a reinforcing disk strapped across the chest area.

I take it that this image is not available ay longer?

I do have one image that shows Ming Troops from a book on Ancient Chinese Armor. The gunner appears to be wearing a white brigandine armor.

The late Ming armour looks almost identicle to Qing armour which I believe the Qing adopted.

The pictures in "manchu veritable records " show ming soldiers dressed identicle to qing soldiers, however the drawings are black and white so I don't know what color were Ming soldiers wearing.


I can't find good quality ones, you have to find the book.
here are some drawings in the books on battles between later jin and Ming troops during Nurhaci's time.

It's not just you, many of these pictures have gone defunct; who knows why. They originally worked, as memory recalls from last year.
