Im usually an O+G player, I've been toying with the idea of a small, new army for a while and seeing as I've just been given a Bret's rulebook and a box of Knights, thought I'd give them a go.
It will probably be a while before I actually use them. i have quite a lot of Orcs to paint etc.. first, but, have been playing with some lists.
I'm going to start at 1k, once I do get that all painted, i'll probably build slowly from there.
So, what do you all think of this 1k list?
I'm a little worried about the total lack of magic, but, thought it would be a nice change to have a big pile of Horsepower charging across the field of battle!
Bretonian Lord - Warhorse, Lance, Shield, virtue of the joust, lance of Artois, Enchanted Shield, Dawnstone (+2 STR, Killing blow and re-roll failed to-hits on the charge, 1+ armour save and re-rolls to failed saves)
Paladin - BSB, Warhorse, Lance, Shield, Dragonhelm, Potion of Foolhardiness (1+ Armour save, 1-use devestating charge)
8X Knights of the realm (Lord here)
8x Knights Errant (BSB here)
9x Knights Errant
10 x Peasant Bowmen (Skirmishers, Brazier)

Hey welcome in the brett Forum :p
Not having a damsel can swing both ways so i have no real advice on it, i tend to bring at least one with dispel scrol at 1k, just in case i end up fighting vampires or whatnot. (she replaces a mounted knight, so that saves a few points)
The knights are definetly the way to go and fire shooting archers make excellent support.
Our BSb is one of the last happy few who cannot use a shield. Out the window with that 1+ save :p
Now the average Brettonian bsb is a prime target for enemies in combat, i'd prefer the initiative potion over the Foolhardiness, because that extra attack might just come too late.
your lord "re-rolls to failed saves". Whats this? and is he using a shield and an enchanted shield? :p

I completely missed the BSB rule, oh well, he'll have to leave his lance and shield at home.
Can he still have a magical shield? I'll have to dig through my rulebook a little later.
I missed out that the Lord has a dawnstone, i'll edit that in.
I'll also give some thought to the change in potion, tbh, I very rarely use any potions, but had a few spare points to spend.
I think I'll pick up a Damsel model at some point, will definetly be adding one once I expand up to 1500 points.
I don't believe he can. I think it says no macig equipment other than the banner. Another idea would be to put the BSB with Errantry Banner with the KE. Something to try.Can he still have a magical shield? I'll have to dig through my rulebook a little later.
Also welcome, its always nice to see another bret player.
i don't think you can give your battle standard bearer the errantry banner, i think you have to put it on the knights errant standard bearer, i am not sure though, but it would be for the same reason that you cant give the bsb the valorous standard
yup, confirmed "knights errant unit only"
i dont think the devastating charge potion is really worth it, i know it is only five points but i think that the initiative potion would be a better buy if you are absolutely set on a potion, but i would probably just take another archer or something
You're right lion knight, thats my bad. And i agree I would take the initiative potion if i had to pick one of the two.
no worries, i once tried to field a bsb with a morning star, i figured he could still use it, common sense right? wrong, dqued in the fourth turn in this lame tournament where everyone was super rigid, it was seriously lame
