Iím looking to get a unit that can act as an anvil and Iím not sure that I want to leave my all Cav concept yet. So I was wondering if QK can server in that roll. If so how many would I need?
If they canít and I have to go with peasants, can MAA do it?
Thanks for the advice.
The Bret players I know seem to rely on a hard-hitting unit that will win combat in the first round, either breaking the enemy on the charge or holding them for a turn while a second unit joins the fray.
Even using a knight's leadership, I wouldn't rely on peasants to hold up against much, not for long.
Anvils are units that can take a charge and hold their ground. To bne honest, no Bret units really fit this role. Possibly Grail Pilgrims, as they are stubborn iiirc.
Between the two, id go for a unit of 5-6 QKs, not in lance. The continual high Str means they are good for charging unbreakable units (eg Slayers)
M@A make for good numbers, supporting charges and rank bonus when they actually catch up with the Knights.
M@A or Battle Pilgrims are your best bet. I've personally had very good luck with Men-at-Arms, having them hold up to many things. And the beauty is if they get steamrolled, who cares, they cost a bit over 100 points .
