Started updating this scenario to Expansion 6 components, Spartans, Hoplites etc.
Added some peltasts and slingers since they are mentioned by Xenophon
Add an MC to the Spartans, maybe unnecessary, but filled out the component mix.
Then contemplating the 50 rank depth of the Thebans, adjusted the Theban Left to a double rank.

Ended up looking like this

Wondering if the Auxillaries should get a ranged attack. Thinking not, since Greek Hoplite warfare was not noted for it.

Key developments:
- The Elites clashes – yes! What a great and magnificent battle ensued on Spartan right / Theban left! Two powerful blocks of Hoplites met each other, decimating themselves pretty evenly; still, Spartans lost all of their Heavy Infantry while Thebans only 3 out of 5.
- The Theban center also moved forward but I managed to circumvent it with my cavalry – which in the end proved to be a very successful formation in that battle, killing two Theban Medium counterparts.
- In the long run my Spartans – despite great feats of heroism – had to succumb to the numerical superiority of the opponents; while losses were not so great on both sides – as we had 2 VPs for each HI – the battlefield looked like a place of carnage; not surprisingly, both sides blooded themselves here significantly with the victory going to Thebes.
