What would really be nice are some armored Persian cavalry on with at least one barded horse pose in the set, and armored Persian infantry in Greek-style linen corselets to fill out the two existing sets. 

Cataphracts would make a great deal of sense, M'Lord, however, whose cataphracts is the question?

I say if WF is going to forge ahead with a cataphract set, perhaps Parthians or Sarmatians would be in order to give a new opponent for the existing Roman sets... of course the former would require a light cavalry set as well, while the Sarmatians would on principle IMHO require a set of light cavalry headhunting teenage girls for the Black Sea tribes that did not consider a girl eligible for marriage until she'd brought back the head of an enemy (similar to the way girls have traditionally been raised in my wife's family...).

Well, that explains the 'high' pitched voice I suppose.  devil

But on the joking..  uh serious side, 'Lou' I like the idea but Im thinking 'so far' with the Ancient German, German Cav, Celts and Ive been informed with a combination of the two, you could even 'kit bash' Gauls. So IMO the Romans seem to have various enemies.
However, other than the Persians and the Numidians which seem to work pretty good as generic ancients for a variety of nations, the Greeks dont reallly have many opponents. Of course as I have said before, the greatest thing (to me) about the Greeks, they were often their own enemy. Sparta vs. Athens was fairly common it seems.

What the Greeks need is to face armoured Persian infantry and cavalry IMHO, and they need a set of Peltasts/Psiloi which would cover a broad period of the Hellenistic world specifically, and the ancient world in general.
