Hi Mordheimers

I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this but I'm looking to start a warband based on the Arabian Tribes from relics of the crusade, the problem is I can't seem to find too many models for them, does anyone have any recommendations? any assistance would be muchly appreciated.

Well there is always the LOTR-Range from GW with the Haradrim and Khand-Warriors.

They are slightly smaller than the WHFB-Minis but JUST a little. Should work fine.

And you could also go with Perry Miniatures (just select the range Crusades-Muslim Armies:

Reaper also has a good collection of Arabian types, including a good selection of mounted models.

My first warband used a bunch of Darkest Africa, Pirate and Indian Mutiny figures from Foundry. Pricey now, wasn't too cheap then...

In addition a search for Armies of Araby or similar should find several good conversions for Warhammer Fantasy Araby armies using High Elf and or Bretonnian Men at Arms plastic sets.
