I'm looking for a mini of a Chinese noble or Emperor, in traditional robes, ideally standing.

I do NOT want a mounted model. I'm planning on using the model for a HVT in Infinity, so a horse would be out of place.

I checked the usual suspects (Perry, Zenit/Kensei, GCT/Bushido, and even Clan War), but nobody has a Chinese noble.

Help me, TMP, you're my only hope!

Also, Eureka Miniatures have an interesting Chinese figure on a rocket bicycle that might interest you: link

Does the HVT have to "look" Chinese? If not you might look at Urban War Triads or Warzone Mishima. The,as you can tell by the names, more Japanese but they are also futuristic / sci-fi miniatures. You might look these miniatures over.

Given the background material, that The Party resurrected the Ming and Qing Imperial Dynasties (and gave them alternating rule) with all the pomp and circumstance, I really want to use a traditionally-attired model.

But this is a good starting point. Will need to sort out which minis have the least cartoony sculpting.
