Does anyone other than Perry Miniatures make 28mm Saracen/Arab/Islamic casualty figures that would be suitable for Crusades era games? I have a large Arabic and Seljuk army comprised of Musketeer/Footsore and Gripping Beast figures. I thought Gripping Beast made casualty figures for such an army but cannot seem to find them on their website. I know Crusader Miniatures and some other make casualty figures for the Crusaders themselves but not their opponents. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Not much out there, I agree. You can look at "pretty close" Middle Eastern/Indian casualties in the Perry Sudan or Foundry Colonial India & Afghan lines. Also Old Glory does Ansar & Beja casualties for the Sudan in loose clothing and turbans/bare heads.

You could also fabricate casualties from various plastic figures by cutting off the base and a bit of bending and clipping.

There could be some potential in 18-19th century afghan casualty figures in turbans. At least Old Glory have a few of those. You could also take a Western Crusader casualty and replace the head and the shield.
