    Awesome pics, Roma, as ever.

    As for armors, there are some variations. But it's more like in Game of Thrones : The Southland uses a lot of scale, the north has this kinda orc armor, Xiliang troops have their own typical armor. I'm sure it's all grossly unhistorical.

    No problem!

    LOL. That comparison sounds about right. Does the series also do silly color coding of troops, like one would see in Dynasty Warriors video games? Where all the soldiers of Cao Wei have blue outfits and armor, the soldiers of Eastern Wu have red ones, and the soldiers of Shu Han have green ones. Sounds like a well choreographed pageantry, doesn't it?

    Don't get me wrong, that scene itself was entertaining and Cao Cao was badass in it, but it's still awfully silly.

    No color coded soldiers to be spotted. The battles are actually pretty crazy as EACH AND EVERY soldier acts like a berserker on amphetamines. They're completely over the top nuts! They charge all the time, every time. Even the horses go berserk. A terribly confusing and nihilistic ode to carnage at times, which I tend to skip. So perhaps it's a bit like Dynasty Warriors after all.

    Luckily Three Kingdoms main selling point is scheming, conniving, bootlicking people.

    The show looks like GoT would have looked if it was made in the 90s with a budget a fraction of its current one & had weird flying people in battles :/

    But with better dialogue and strategy that makes sense.
