I'm looking for a Ghulam warrior or Mameluk type figure in 28mm on foot holding a two-handed weapon. Preferably in chain mail. Not looking for a spear and sheild figure. Does anybody have any suggestions? More for a fantasy setting than historical although either would do. Thanks.

Sounds like about the easiest conversion ever… "Gripping Beast" Arab crossbow come with empty hands, 2 handed weapons are 2 bucks a pack of 10. Bam!

Harlequin's old Saracen line had some with polearms and big 2H swords…

Black Tree Design has some in their fantasy Saracens range. They are on sale for a short while longer, too.

You might want to look into Paul's suggestions. Black Tree looks to have at least two sets of figures that might work: Saracen Fighters (with bills/glaives) and Saracen Elite Guards (with halberds or similar polearms). Both appear to have mail, though the Elite Guards are more heavily armored. Not sure if the figure style or scale meshes with your existing figures, but you might check them out.
