    Very nice indeed!!:goodjob:

    Knight is definitely not the correct name since there is no knight in any part of asian. ;)

    Just a little question, his sword look more like a Katana? :mischief: Historically Korean sword is very much like the Chinese sword. :)

    Actually the katana and Korean swordsa are very similar the katana is probably from Korea. Koreans did use straight double edged swords as well but I gave him a katana.

    Knight :
    1. Abbr. Knt. or Kt. A medieval tenant giving military service as a mounted man-at-arms to a feudal landholder.
    2. Abbr. Knt. or Kt. A medieval gentleman-soldier, usually high-born, raised by a sovereign to privileged military status after training as a page and squire.
    3. Abbr. K. A man holding a nonhereditary title conferred by a sovereign in recognition of personal merit or service to the country.

    Abbr. Knt. or Kt. A man belonging to an order or brotherhood.
    1. A defender, champion, or zealous upholder of a cause or principle.


    I think must fedual countries had knights, Japan samurai, Shilla hwarang. When my Korean friend comes online I'll ask her for a better name.


    Korean Swords after 5min search on internet




    most is from Choseon period after mongols. This knight is set around the time of Mongols.

    Nice work! Now I can finally get rid of the generic swordsman unit for "Seven Kingdoms" and "The Art of War" mods. :)

    I talked to my Korean friend, she said gisa was the best for this unit. Gisa means knights, like nobel people can only become gisa.
    So possbile names:
    Joseoneui Gisa (Knight of Joseon)
    Joseon Gisa (Joseon Knight)
    Gisa (Knight)

    I don't care what you call it but I like it!

    If you're not careful you may make it possible for people to include Korea into mods and scenarios, with the appropriate units! :eek: Be real careful dude...

    I'm using it as a Goryeo Gisa since the Goryeo Dynasty spans 932-1392, around the time it was the "Middle Ages" in Europe. :)

    Yes, my mistake it should be Goryeo. It is based off the armour in Musa, a Korean film. The movie is about events in 1368, I thought that was Joseon, but Joseon is from 1392, so the name should be Goryeo Gisa.
