While we're at it, any ideas for a Yasunori proxy? 

I found this guy; the model's billed as a dwarf, but I think it kinda works...

My ambitions idea is to convert a Bunraku into a rider for the standing Kirin here:

And if you're looking for just the mount, they have an actual kirin (looks closer to the Wyrd art, if a bit spindly):

I like this, too: http://shop.zenitminiatures.es/product.php?id_product=198

The problem with both of these is that they look very tricky to get a rider on to.

My objection here would be that this thing comes on a 70mm base (not listed on that page, but I looked into using this guy as an Emissary proxy a while back).

True. I'm wondering if I can make something work with a spare Bunraku.

I'm trying not to worry too much about sticking to the art. As long as it's a demon looking person with swords and either has wings, or is one a mount with wings, I'll take it under consideration.

You can make it work on a 50, sort of. I've been using it as an Emissary proxy, and will probably mount a rider on it for Yasunori.

I do a lot of cardstock modelling for terrain, so I just make standees out of the official artwork for proxies. They might not look as good as well done models but there also isn't any question in my opponents mind about what they are supposed to be.

I'll post some pictures when I get home this afternoon.

I second the Immortals from Hordes, Privateer Press.  I play skorne, so easy peasy for me.

As for Yasunori... I have a bunch of mounted 50mm base models from Warmachines/Hordes. I have Fenrir, who is this maniac on a horse with 2 swords. Which is kinda what I see Yasunori as... So it will work for me :D

I found it hard to tell from the photos on the site, but the Terracotta Warriors that @Definitechoice linked above are very nicely done - lots of nice "cracked terracotta" detail in the sculpts. They're a little bit smaller than I'd like, but I'll happily field them until the real thing comes along. WIP photos:
