possibly using metal? is that even a question? lore of metal the crap out of the bretts, its designed to kill armour, and thats what they are built on. to be fair though, i see life working pretty well against them too, to keep your units alive against the charge and bogging down the knights into a battle of atrittion.

also, i see your core as being pretty minimal. i assume you've already thought about your tactics but i think your going pretty light on infantry blocks for the 8th edition. all those artillery peices are pretty vounerable to pegasus knights so you gotta assume they will be knocked out fairly quickly. the mage might help deter that, but you gotta be ready for flying knights romping around behind your lines. the outriders might help in this as well.

Ok so that should have read "probably be metal", but I have been toying with the idea of life. I guess I'm still in the direct damage mindset rather than buffing units.

Drop The knights they are not worth the money unless you take a lot, beef up your swordsmen take 5 outriders its enough. With THE spare points take 1 maybe 2 extra cannons. Have you ever seen Cannon go through a lance formation!! Ouch! Use detatchments they are very good, But you should take at least 15 in a unit.
