Islamic successors to the Sassanid Persians, the Samanids and other Khurasanian Dynasties increasingly employed Ghilman (sometimes called
"Ghulam," or, by themselves, Mamluk) Turkish armoured horse-archers until these overthrew the native Persian dynasties and established the Ghaznavid dynasty.
Meanwhile, Daylami and other Iranians supplied powerful forces of infantry to their own armies and were much sought after in the rest of the Muslim world as mercenaries.
Models in this range are ideal for a wide variety of armies including Eastern Islamic troops such as Khurasanians, Ghaznavids, Buyid and Daylami Dynasties, Abbasid, Great Seljuk, and any army that contained Ghilman/Mamluk, Khurasanian, Persian or Daylami troops before the appearance of the European Crusaders had an influence upon Muslim armour and dress styles.
