    1. For Wu Xia, you would probably have to convert Chinese cavalry on top of plastic frogs, for Brass Titans - look for Bronze Golems or similar. Pixiu can probably be made from manticores with greenstuffed heads.

  10. Just wanted to say thanks for listing these, Ive now got myself a nice shopping list for a 2000pt army
    incase anyone was interested it looks to cost around £240.
    So pretty much the same as a GW army I guess.
