Racial classes

So, I am exploring the possibility of writing a Sword & Sorcery retro-clone game in the vein of Classic D&D, but with races and classes from the Hyborian Age. I would like to make full use of archetypes, so each class would really be a typical race/class combination.

I think the following would be excellent matches:
Cimmerian Barbarian
Zamorian Thief
Hyrkanian Nomad
Zingaran Pirate
Stygian Sorcerer (I would not bother with the Scholar at all)
Hyperborean Soldier
Aquilonian Noble

Any other ideas?

Yes, I had thought about it, but I would prefer Picts to be NPCs only.
