I currently have 16 KOTR, 16 PB, 16m@A and 3 Pegs. From what I have assembled and painted till now, I have made a 750 pts List.
1 Paladin on Royal pegasus, General
Virtue of Confidence,
Gauntlet of Duel
1 Paladin Battle Standard Bearer on Warhorse
Virtue Of Noble Disdain
8 KOTR with musician
16 M@Arms Full command Command with Spears
16 Skirmisher Bowmen, Full Command, Light Armor
Both my paladins are Proxies unfortunately...
I plan to Use the general as a Character Killer and warmachine hunter, as my two opponents are Dwarfs and Empire.
Only one average unit of Knights is very un-bretonnian I know, but at such a small scale I think they will work.
As for the Peasents, I plan to deploy M@As with two ranks 8 men wide. I know they will be broken at first contact with the enemy (probably before that), but perhaps if they cover more ground, they can give me a tactical advantage.
Bowmen will try and harass enemy gunners and warmachine crew. Not much chance of that working with dwarfs though.
Well, what do you think? I may be able to play a game or two, and they will be my first battles. Perhaps I can paint a few more knights till then. All comments will be appreciated!
I thought that they would cover more ground, perhaps providing some sort of cover for my knights unit. Ground coverage is important in normal battles, I don't know about Warhammer, and I thought that in such small points the way to cover more groudn is by deploying what small number of men you have in wider ranks.
I may be wrong of course, that's why I'm asking you people for opinion, I have no play experience.
Also I have learned that skirmishes don't get banner+musician, if thats true my points total dops to 700 and ı can take 2 extra KOTR! (I'm working on painting them).
The formation your peasants are planned to do are called "speedbumb" and its mainly used for range based armys.
You said that the reason to have them in that formation was to slow the opponents down.
Since the KotRs and the heros are the units you want to use to kill your opponents.
All of them are mounted.
So the peasents won't be slowing any opponents down.
they will only stall your knights to the point where you either can make a charge (and you probably already lost your unit of M@A) or your knights are unable to do anything at all since they are stuck and all the opponents are able to move around without the fear of being charged by the KotW.
since this is an old thread (2007) i assume you are not going to respond but... anyhooo =P
