What is the difference between Ashigaru and Chusi(n)garu(gura?)?

Konnichiwa Yngwie J.-san!
Welcome and Hajimemashite!🙂

Ashigaru is a foot soldier(or common soldier) in the Middle Ages in Japan.

Chushingura is the story of revenge "the Forty seven Ronin".

Thanks!

Hi NANGI,
and thanks for the reply!

Iツエm a devoted figurepainter, and some of the figures I buy is labeled as Chushingura (produced by the Japanese manufacturer Tamiya). The reason I posted my question is that I cannot tell the difference between these and the Ashigaru.

Best regards,
Yngwie J.
