Does anyone have any decent ideas for the composition of a 250pt skirmish group?

The fluff here is the paladin and his personal retainers, a knight errant, and the other peasants. Along with a few questing knights joining for the ride(or walk as the case may be)

We decided on some home rules:
If I take an unmounted knight it is -14 points to the model cost
1 hero(paladin)
no magic items
2 horses only

I'm trying not to take too many mounted units.

I'm thinking the following:

Questing knights x 2 or 3
- on foot (+2 str for great weapons)

a few peasant bowmen

a few men at arms

but I've never played skirmish before(and only 1 mordheim game many years ago), so what would be effective?
