Here's my first go at a Bretonnia list!
3x 5 Knights of the Realm- FC, Banner of Chalons (my friends usually respond to charges with shooting! Skinks and outriders are pissing me off!)
3 Pegasus Knights
1 Paladin- lance, enchanted sheild, Virtue of nightly temper, barded warhorse.
1 Paladin (standard)- barded warhorse, Morning star of Fracasse
1 Damsel of the Lady- lvl 2, barded warhorse, Dispel scroll
998 points altogether! What do you think! I just can't stand the faces of the Errant Knights! Knights of the Realm are so much cooler too! (less stupid, don't run in hastily)

Well, as for shooting, I use shooty dwarf and TK armies so I like the idea of a very Close combat based army! I guess I'll have to work out a few things with this list, but my opponents tend not to have very many fear causing units. I want a lvl 2 wizard though because my usual opponents always have lots of wizards. I guess I could use some MAA but pegasus knights are important for getting rid of war machines, if I'm facing empire. One of my friends is switching from chaos to empire and the other has empire as a second army so I think I'll need the pegasus knights. Depending on the opponent I may switch in some Errant knights if they have a stegadon for instance. I'll get rid of the morning star of fracase though. I'll get rid of the Morning star, a couple of banners, and I'll add in either some peasant bowmen or some Men at Arms.
It's a pretty good list, but I agree about wanting Errantry Knights at this level. You may see Stegadons and Hydra, so they're nice to have, especially with the Errantry Banner. I'm not sure what a level 2 damsel does for you in terms of magic defence, but if you drop her down you can pick up the ever excellent Chalice of Malfleur for good D or another dispel scroll.
You don't get any more dispel dice for being a LVL 2 so it's pointless for defense. Like Tekore said, take another scroll or chalice instead.
Don't get me wrong, I love Pegasus Knights! But at this points level it's quite a big chunk just for three guys who can get shot down very quickly if you can't find cover well.
I like your list although as stated earlier you can only have that good banner on one unit. That is a real shame but it is the rules.
I have been playing in an escalation league and we are at the 1000 point level. I am using 2 groups of archers one behind stakes and one as skirmishers.
My 2250 point list has no foot soldiers at all.
I'm getting rid of the two banners, the pegasus knights, the morning star of fraccanse, and the upgrade to the damsel in favor of
-20 Men at Ams (these guys have no command or anything, I'll just use them for flank charges and for cannon fodder.
-16 peasant bowmen (once again no command, I don't see the use for them on bowmen)
-Either the chalice or another dispel scroll for my now lvl 1 damsel
-And a war banner for my paladin standard bearer. (I think I'll want the +1 combat res)
How about now! Do you think I should use the chalice or another dispel scroll though?
Chalice - extremely useful extra disel dice every turn...but if it fails you automatically give away half points for your damsel
Scroll - one use, auto dispel...
Your choice really. Probably depends on whom you're fighting.
Warbanner is a really good idea.
Peasants as you intend to use them don't need command so that's fine.
I think it's a much more balanced list now =)
