I've always wanted to do a peasantry army. When i realised this wasn't very feasable i started to think of other ways to do it. This is one of my attempts:

Level 4 Prophetess, Staff of Sorcery, 2 Dispel Scrolls 325

Level 2 Damsel, Sacrament of the Lady 145

Level 2 Damsel, Warhorse, The Verdant Heart 155

Level 2 Damsel 105

Battle Standard Bearer, Banner of the Lady, Barded Warhorse, Virtue of Discipline 184

8 Knights of the Realm, Full Command 216

16 Peasant Bowmen 96

16 Peasant Bowmen 96

16 Peasant Bowmen, Skirmish 112

16 Peasant Bowmen, Skirmish 112

16 Men at Arms 80

30 Men at Arms, Full Command 177

Field Trebuchet, Yeoman Craftsman 100

Field Trebuchet, Yeoman Craftsman 100

12 Power dice, with the Level 2's casting from life, while the Prophetess uses Heavens.
7 Dispel dice, with 2 scrolls and +1 on my attempts to dispel. :p

The rest of the army is based on throwing out as much firepower as possible. The peasant bowmen are pretty good for 6 pts each. The Knights and Men at Arms units are for counter-charging, with the unit of 16 pretty much being filler. It'll be used for drawing the enemy into charging, so i can get a charge into them.

The unit of knights fight pretty much evenly with any infantry. The advantage of the Banner of the Lady and the virtue is that any combat is resolved without the enemies ranks or outnumbering. This means that the unit of knights is already at +3 (ranks and standard) while the enemy is only on +1 (standard), before we start counting kills. They should win when they charge, and even have a decent chance when they don't.

You can't have two units of skirmishing bowmen.
Trade in a fair number of the bowmen for men at arms and a grail reliquary, currently your army is a "bow-line", if the enemy reach you you're dead.

Still no reliquiary, but is it really necessary?

Reliquiary are honestly way tougher than people give them credit for....Keep them near the battle standard (or better yet gvie the BS the Virtue of Empathy and put him IN the unit) and they'll hardly ever break.
