I've been toying with a few lists for a five-hundred point tournament this weekend and admit, I'm torn.

Comp is light, but important:


No Lords or Rare units.

1-2 Hero(s)

3+ Other units including at least one Ranked or Skirmishing unit and at least one Standard.

Army Book 1+ restrictions are waived. Critical for Bretonnia.


Winds of Magic is decided using d3, not d6 dice. That is, 2d3 Power Dice and the larger of the two rolls for Dispel Dice.

'Nuke' spells, those which can remove a model from play with no saves permitted, are disallowed.


Enemies will include Ogres, High elves, Beastmen and Skaven.

I've got three lists I like, and three Generals to lead them. what I'm really looking for is which is best (or, if you can think of something better still!).


My thoughts on a General, one of the following:

Dame Gedrun
Paladin w/ Virtue of Confidence, Gauntlet of the Duel, Enchanted Shield, Luckstone
Barded Warhorse
:124
She has a good shot at killing most any other 125 point character out there, even an Ogre, however, that's really all she is good for...
---

Sir Simeon the Brash
Paladin w/ Ruby Ring of Rhuin, Wyrmlance, Shield.
Barded Warhorse
:121
Fight everything with Fire. Lets me do something in the Magic phase and has a Breath Weapon... Of course, getting into position to use said Breath Weapon is never easy.
---
Sir Rufus
Paladin w/ Enchanted Shield, Ogre Axe
Barded Warhorse
:123
Only one of the three worth a lot after round one, if my Knights fail to blow through the enemy on the charge.

As for Armies, again, I have three ideas.


--HEROES--
Paladin (of some sort)

--CORE--
Sir Palamon's Knights of the Realm
6x Knights w/ Champion, Standard
:160

Sir Carados' Knights of the Realm Paladin goes here
5x Knights w/ Champion, Standard
:136

10x Skirmishing Bowmen w/ Braziers
:75

------------------------------------------------

--HEROES--
Paladin (of some sort)

--CORE--
Sir Carados' Knights of the Realm Paladin goes here.
5x Knights w/ Champion, Standard
:136

10x Skirmishing Bowmen w/Braziers
:75

--SPECIAL--
Sir Uther's Pegasus Knights
3x Knights
:165

-------------------------------------

--HEROES--
Paladin (of some sort)

--CORE--
Sir Palamon's Knights of the Realm Paladin goes here.
5x Knights w/ Full Command, Banner of Chalons
:131

Sir Carados' Knights Errant
6x Knights
:120

Dame Hermione's Knights Errant
6x Knights
:120

--------------------------------------------------



At the moment, I lean towards army number three. I'm not much keen on Errants since the last FAQ, (or without the Errantry Banner) but they are cheap and I just plain like an all-mounted army. I run all-mounted at higher points, so why not here?

I also really like having the Banner of Chalons. Lady, how many times has that banner saved my ****?
