This army is one I've wanted for a while. I even experimented with them as goblins:


It's now halfway complete, as the ghulams and noble cavalry (above) are joined by slingers, Dailami javelinmen and Khurasanian horse archers:


See more here (and how they evolved from Goblins): link

Very nice! Good name puns for the goblins, also. I looked at the Easterners for goblins as well, but settled on later Picts.

Thanks; it was really just a convenience to try them out. I had the Goblins painted for HoTT; I then started expanding them to be able to morph into a number of armies with elephants; in particular the Classical Indians; I got battle carts and dinoriders for the Goblins specifically so I could do this: link

Are those 3mm bases?

No, they're 2mm ones with a very thin layer of magnetic-receptive paper stuck to them.
