suppose you take 5 paladins and a whole bunch of knights. No anti magic at all.
Could it work out against moderate magic users (2 casters in 2.000), or is it dead men riding horses?
I've never tried that, mostly because i think some damsels look sexy :p
What're your thoughts about it?

Could work but the problem would be your not even contesting the magic phases.
You would need to do a charge line in essence not something me or my opponents enjoy.
So it could work yes!

If someone helps you REP them...
I think madman sums it up pretty well. Having no magic defence at this pointage, you are gonna really struggle against any army cos you are not contesting the magic phase. That being said, your only magic defence is then a swift offence, you need to get into combat asap. This makes you really predictable, and the likelyhood is you won't have the time to arrange a flank charge and combined charges with what you have so its going to mostly be in the front and not very effective.
I think on a scale of things this weakens your army a lot more than it strengthens it. I mean against someone like dwarves, fine, this makes sense. However giving anyone's magic a free ride makes it really tough for you. Even one Scroll caddy damsel would make a huge difference here, but I still don't think that is enough really. At 2000 points I would go for 2 scroll caddies, or swap one of them for the chalice. This gives you enough antimagic from MR, dispel dice and scrolls, to help ease off the burden of opponents magic phases. (bear in mind there are a fair few magic heavy armies out there, a lot of them with spells that do no armour save! this is the bane of our knights.)
The mass knight and paladin offensive can work, but it is not very fun to actually play with or against, and is a bit of a one shot kind of thing.
