Well for models, you can't go far wrong with these:

As far as rules are concerned, were you looking to use a currently published army list and substitute X for Y (e.g. High Elf Spearmen = Greek Hoplites), or were you going to draw up your own army list?

If the former, I would probably suggest High Elves as a good proxy...they're probaby the closest thing you're going to get to a 'phalanx' rule with their spearmen fighting in extra ranks. Alternatively, Orcs&Goblins might do well representing a Greek army, with their massed ranks and a good selection of monstrous things that can represent a variety of mythical creatures (though the animosity rules don't really fit the theme).

If the latter, I would honestly be a little wary...homebrewed army lists tend toward the overpowerful, so I would have to be given fair warning and a good chance to study the list myself before commiting to a game against it.
