it looks quite formidable at the moment mate, however - i never take peasants in a bretonnian army unless it is skirmishing archers. this is because a bretonnian army is supposed to be constantly on the move and constantly outmanouevering his/her opponent. even if it is wood elves, the first charge is likely to simply obliterate them if timed well and to be honest the peasants would get butchered anyway!

i like your use of knights errant - but with only one dependable core choice i would seriously consider taking KoTR instead of knights errant. if possible stick two units of six KoTR with full command instead of the knights errant and two peasant units. also, in a 1000 pts game more units is better, so reduce the 9 strong KoTR unit to six. that way you have more points to play with without any nerfed units that will just get targeted by every bleeding missile your opponent has to spare.

personally, without any other pegasus knights your paladin is likely to be targeted even before he reaches enemy lines - i'm not saying it's not a good idea, it definitely is but he will not be anywhere near maximum effectiveness without at least three other pegasus knights.

your battle standard bearer is a very good, basic set-up, ideal for going in a KoTR unit! also, your damsel is a good choice though i personally would take one or two dispel scrolls instead, as opposed to bretonnian arcane items as i find many of them are useless. to be honest the chalice of malfleur is just too risky with your only magic user!

unfortunately, the bretonnian battalion doesn't give much in the way of sledgehammer hits gaming-wise, however i find the peasant models to be oddly interesting and some of the better infantry models out there!

hope this helps,

Ben

PS have you any units painted up? i'd love to see them!
