Well here it is, my Bretonnian force, pretty much every model i have, only used this once, looking for some C&C on what it could use, keep in mind this was written for 6th ed and so far, no real issues using it in 7th ed, except my puny "not so great" weapons :(

I like it pretty much. But I'd ditch the M@As. Use the points to get some mounted yeomen. I find that these guys are indespensible for setting up some relly wicked counter-charges. It just seems like the peasants don't serve much of a purpose, besides look muppety and move slowly.

I'd still ditch the GW on the lord, get a lance.
How I loathe the stupid +1S from a great weapon while mounted.

the men at arms are in for 2 reasons, number 1 - they came in the box set... but more importantly number 2, they are useful for either being some form of shield, bait or even counter charge, they are very cheap, get 4+ rank bonus before any hits are resolved, and dont give any VPs for standards, so you really dont have to worry about them, and its always nice to have some kind of R'n'F against something you know you cant break in 1 turn, bog them down for the counter charge, as for the Lord, i had a battle last week, and he never used the great weapon once... just cast the Bears anger on him! ( 7 S6 attacks... those knights didnt like that one!) its just for decoration, and cause the model has it, plus re-rolling failed psycology tests in nice, and a grail vows pricey

hi just two questions:
Bears anger i thought that could only be cast on a model on foot.
and how come you paid for 2 silver mirrors, i did not think this was an item you could have more than once?

apart from that the list is sound, replacing the mounted squires by infantry is a bit risky....but that is a personal choice.

Well it was my first 7th ed game, so i might be wrong with the magic, and as for silver mirrors *checks book* it does not say you can only have 1, its a mean combo, try and wound the wizard form shooting then polish him off with that... and as for mounted squires, they will be added in time,as will 2 more errant knights (i use the old plastic knight models with some conversions to show them as errant, so its hard to expand them) I was thinking of getting one, but changing the model alot, giving it a towershield like a M@A and replacing the helmet with a bucket helmet, something like that

You can only take one of every magic item unless noted differently, so unless it sayd you can take more than one, you can't

bah! i never use them anyway, well with that 40points spare i can probably fit in some mounted yeomen... or at least some of them

Suddenly you've got some very dumb, very poor, very SLOW screens.

Your knights move DOUBLE the pace of your M@As. You're wasting one of the best advantages of a Bretonnian army, the initiative and the length of the charge.

I'm quite sure you can ditch the muppets and use the remaining points (after you ditch the second illegal silver mirror) to get some mounted yeomen.

They're better screens. They're better bait. They're fast cavalry.

Who cares if peasants have ranks, ournumber and a standard? Even the most basic infantry unit will be even up on CR with them, AND score more hits/kills. Not only that, but with such terrible stat lines, they're fodder for even the most unlucky of opponents.

In the end: Yeomen > M@A

peasant screens can be very useful, for example against a dwarf army i had to play against with 5 bolt throwers, unfortunatly they were on a hill so that tactic didnt work, but another bret player done the same against this dwarf army (league in stirling) and it saved him for sure from certain knightly kebabs... and in the year i have played Bretonnians they are always useful (mostly...)
