Total Battle Miniatures - Expression of Interest?

Total Battle Miniatures have produced this stunning range of 10mm eastern style buildings, which are perfect for ancient, medieval and modern day wargaming. The company are now considering whether to make the same range in 28mm and are seeking expressions of interest (this is not a commitment to buy, they just want to judge if a range would be of interest to the gaming community), if so, can you please leave a comment below?   
Thank you for your assistance!!!

Arab Horse Archers

Arab armies often used tactics of "hit and run" against their foes. 
Light cavalry armed with bows or javelins would often be used for this task.
Arabs taught their children archery from a young age, the Second Caliph in Islam Umar advised Arab fathers to teach their sons archery, swimming, riding horses. 
The Bedouin Archers were less efficient than the Turks, 
but they could inflict casualties in the light infantry.

Ghulam Cavalry "Red Regiment" Abbasid Caliphate

Ghulam was a word used to describe slave soldiers. Despite their title they 
were often very well trained and loyal troops, being well equipped also.
