The peasant running with a topknot and wearing only breeches (old Japanese range) easily converts to an excellent topless Zaporozhian Cossack. The Bonnacht axeman in the late medieval range needs only a little epoxy on his shaggy head to turn into a Cossack melee figure wearing one of those od Ukrainian "pumpkin" hats. Add the fact that there is an axeman already in the Polish range, and that Irregular make a few 10mm Cossacks too, and a fine opponent for Turks and Poles is very feasible.

Nice idea. Can I ask what you'd suggest for cavalry?  Mounted Cossacks appear in numerous Pendraken ranges and periods, but all look a bit too uniform or heavily armoured to me...

Well, IM make a few, and I used some of the horse archers from the Pendraken medieval early Islamics (AB 7). But I went for Zaporozhki, who were mainly infantry.

Cossacks from the Seven years war Russian SYR29 mixed with Cossack style cavalry P12 from the renaissance Polish would be a good choice for cavalry, I would think.

Dismounted dragoons in cloth caps are good too. And YW4 Croatian cavalry would make convincing Don Cossacks, I think.

I find that the Polish Pancerni figures rather useful, I have mixed these in various 16th/17th century armies. I can imagine they would work for armoured cossacks too

Pancerni actually means "armoured Cossacks". cf. Panzer.
