Here are the Turkish and Syrian Legions for the Army of the Orient. These are AB miniatures and nice cast which easily could mix with Battle Honors or Old Glory. Enjoy The mameluke horde is next after the Balloon.

Not knowing much about the details of this campaign, I'm presuming these were allies of the French?

Great paint jobs!

Yes they were formed from We will say opportunists once the Mamelukes were scattered about, the term anything for a buck still applied back then as it does today.

What differentiates them from Mamelukes in appearance? (i.e. how do I tell visually that they are Allies rather than enemies of the French?)

The French tried to make them wear a similar headgear but in reality, they wore their own equipment saddles and tack The French only supplied them with food ammunition and some weapons. They pretty much look just like regular Mamelukes I thought maybe a simple French flag or a French officer would work but many French officers went "native" some it becomes problematic.
