drop the individual point costs, only leave the points for the whole character/unit.

Ideal lords are pretty terrible, as you're weakening one of the greatest strengths you have with a Lord; Ld 9. Look at using the Virtue of Heroism if you want a combat lord. Killing blow on everything is fun. Your BSB is kind of squish, and isn't that great. If anything, Noble Disdain should be used on a Peg Paladin who is hunting Warmachines. The Warbanner really isn't worth the points anymore, because it will rarely make a difference. Toss on some armour to make it so he won't die. I'd swtich at least one KotR squad to an Errant squad, and drop two of the squads down to 9ish. All the points you save should go into peasants, as they really help with supporting the Knights.

I chose war banner as the bsb will go with grail knights and so, with the virtue and standard etc. they are getting a +4 combat res before wounds and rank

is it worth takin the pegasus paladin, or should i take 2x 10 bowmen and beef out knights?
