I'm not much of a Bretonnian player, mostly just planning armies I've never made. :p

That said my untrained eye really like the look of the unit choices you've gone for, nice mix of stuff, nothing stupid like an all knight army or the RAF. :D

Thank you very much!

I must confess to loving the peasants! I often take the Grail Reliquae, but instead I have gone for a large unit of Men at Arms. In this unit I shall place the Damsel on foot, for she has a cheeky purpose...to use the Prayer Icon to give them the blessing!

Your list looks pretty solid, you have plenty of ranged support and a solid unit of men at arms to back up your knights.

The one thing I noticed was the fact that you gave the peasants a command, and the archers villeins. I think that points could be spent a little better here. (Again this is just my personal opinion ^_^) the leadership boost isn't exactly staggering and the increased fighting skills are marginal. I'm a big fan of my peasants, but I've never felt the upgrades were worth it. With the points you could shave off on this you could get a Banner of Defense for your Grail Knights, since they're almost always going to be a fire magnet.

The only other thing I can say about your list is the fact that you have two duelists, I find that one is usually good enough. You could consider changing your lord or paladin to a more 'strike' oriented character. A good use for such characters is widdling down a unit charged.

Just my two cents, I don't play in many tournaments, but you have a good list, I hope you do well.

:cool:

I have two duelists because I often find that the one I want to get into a challenge, doesn't!

The Villeins do me very well, as for the Yeoman Warden, well no one expects peasants to have a champion in their unit I've found.

Thank you for your response Ender101

Only thing I would mention is the lack of dispel scrolls. I find 4 dispel dice isn't enough at 2000 let alone 2500 so would try to squeeze at least one in.

I like the sound of this army but i agree with Griptenstien 4 dispell dice aren't enough in a 2.5k army.
