You should also look at the 1989 Hong Kong movie directed by Terry Tong called SEVEN WARRIORS. It's not very good, but it shows Chinese village architecture and clothing and weapons in the 1920's and 1930's. It's based on Akira Kurosawa's SEVEN SAMURAI. It's set in the interwar period of banditry and clashing warlords. Seven soldiers band together to help a village defend against bandits. Copplestone figures are perfect for this.

Note that the LUST CAUTION movie that I recommended above is about a Chinese resistance plot to assassinate a Chinese official who is collaborating with the occupying Japanese. It's set in Shanghai and Hong Kong, as best I recall. Pulp Figures has several suitable miniatures for this situation.
Sailors have more fun!

Very cool! I have been looking for more of these.

I think I love you.  ;)

I'm not going to go that far (after all, I hardly know you) but I would be jolly keen to add this to the collection.

 The Virtual Armchair General's Mean Streets sets have some nice Chinatown pieces for printing. http://www.thevirtualarmchairgeneral.com/610-Mean-Streets-Main-Page.html#Chinatown%20Header
