Unfortunately despite the Persian army lists going back to 550BC I can't see any mention of an Eqyptian army list.

Also, in the pictures I see that some of the armoured citizen hoplites are "below average" quality; if these people really are citizens of their polis and they are able to afford a full panoply, then why would they be below average? Seems they should be at least average.
Normally they are. I expect the screen shot was taken with the game set to Difficulty Level 1 or 6, which adjust troop quality.

I feel your pain, but I am bound by a code of silence. However, you can expect an announcement early next week.

I think the last was 24–25 April 1941 between the Germanic Hordes and the Later Imperial British

Sorry, but why the Thebans/Beotians do not put into a separate army?
What about the deep Theban phalanx with a depth of 50 ranks?
In many wargame systems the Thebans is a separate army.
In addition, the equipment of the Thebans and images on the shields different from the other Greeks.
Give us more variety from the Greeks, please!

Well we can't really have 50 ranks deep units, because they would be 12 ranks of models deep and would not fit on the square. So even if we did have some deeper units for Thebans, they would still need to be several units deep to represent 50 ranks. The effect of this is probably best represented by custom POAs in the scenario script of a Leuktra scenario, rather than in the vanilla army lists.

You can do some Thebans units as 12-16 figures of spearmen, I think. Why you don't create indepedent Theban army list? :-(
Some people want to play with theban battle gays! :-D
