Am considering a purchase of Wights for my Undead army, but don't care for the Mantic ones. Just wondering if anyone how tall these Kensei yurei naginata are? I really do like the look, even if the samurai armor will contrast strangely with the generic European medieval armor of my existing force.

And while I don't need a Greater Earth Elemental, this Sessho seki would be my choice if I did. [It is listed as 54mm high.]

The potential wight models look nice, but are they big enough to use as large infantry ? (if not they would probably make nice wraith instead)

For the asian look, maybe simply swapping the heads might be enough ?

The other model would indeed make a very fine earth elemental

The Kensei line is 32mm, and the yurei appear taller than other figures in the line, so they should have the height though not the bulk. May purchase regardless as I do like the look and will just live with the contrast.

Kensei stuff looks great, being 32mm instead of 28mm has kept me away though.

You could use these 54mm Wild Hunt miniatures as Wights

@RivenSkull: Thanks for the links. The Mierce figures are splendid, but pricey. However, I'll keep the company in mind.

At the moment, Mierce is having a "Metal surplus" sale, with two of the Drēaguth models still available currently.

If you're up for having multiples of the same model, they are now cheaper than the Mantic models for a set of 3. If not, one surplus model with the unit is only $15 more expensive than Mantic to have 6 Wights (shipping from Mantic or Mierce is roughly the same at $12.50).
