Haven't been able to find mention in the searches, so are there any estimates as to how many arquebuses were fielded at Sekigahara on each side? Agreeing with the lower estimates at Nagashino 25 years earlier, I don't want to assume that simply dividing the troops by a third would result in something close, as it'd mean at least 50000 guns - ~25,000 a side - and while teppo usage had increased, I don't think that many were use in that battle.
