Without further ado, a list I planned for the Bretonnians with the aim of being both effective and stylish - not maximum powergaming.

Battle plans: Lord deploys with Errants to keep them in check, Paladin deploys with the Peasant Battle line for obvious reasons. Damsels make up the 9th members of the other big knightly units.
The Peasant Line takes the center, Knightly Hammer units deploy on the flanks, while flanking units (small errant units, Mounted Yeomen) take he extreme flank. The unit with the Banner of Twilight deploys behind a forest.
Grail Knights find the optimum place after everyone else has deployed, making sure to be as safe as possible from enemy shooting by using screening and terrain.

you have a good battle plan its now just more a case of will your men survive the attack across the field without being shot to much.

give your lord virtue of confidence, the wyrmlance, armour of agilulf and a hippogryph and gauntlet of the duel hes the ultimate dueler challenges must be accepted re-roll hits and wounds armour of agilulf gives him ws10 he hits on 3s but the opponent likely to not get alot of hits and all attacks count as flaming.

Thanks for the comments.

Iīd take Life for the Sorceresses and try to cast Mistress of the Marsh. Of course, the Damsels are just there to dispel magic (and yes, it depresses me to "have" to take them, especially as it might mean 260 wasted points if I donīt face magic).

Of course, itīs possible to spend more on the characters (level 2 damsels, improved lord etc.), but Iīve always been a fan of troops. But naturally it can be varied.

The main question, to me, is how well the knights can work together with the battle line - can the peasants pull their weight in combination with the knights or are knights the only sensible option?
