How many points is that?

How are those man at arms divided?

Looks like a very good tarpit or two. As long as they dont run. But how do you plan to actually win the games?

I would run the Men at Arms 10 wide 16 deep!:D
A unit of that size will tie up multiple units for a LONG time. Have the Knights slam into Amy units occupied with killing the horde of dudes, support the Men@Arms with LoB to toughen them up, have the Paladin kill warmachines and the Trebuchet shoot ranged units.

but unlike anything else of a similar role, men at arms are relativly expensivce and really bad. I mean, WS2 for 5pts a pop. They have there place, but not in those numbers.

this army can easy get pwn by a funline or caster army since the men at arms. is not strong and fail 1 panic with them and you lose your whole army.

And since you have such faith in them ill tell u what i told my friend who also plays brets.

To much men at arms will be your death.
i play tomb kings.. 2 ssc and a casket shows you the way of earli death and failure ;p

I'd split the MaA into at least 2, preferably 3 units to make this a little more practical. What happens when your huge exposed flank gets charged? You lose, and by a lot. Sure you're still steadfast but on an 8 there's very good chance of running.

Slaves and Gnoblars cost 2 points, and clanrats have WS3
