    This is the list that I'll work to when I buy my Bretonnians. My thinking is it's best that any problems are ironed out here rather than buying loads of useless stuff:

    =====================================================

    1 * Paladin @ 134 Pts
    General; Shield; Questing Vow
    Sword of the Quest

    1 Warhorse

    1 Paladin Battle Standard Bearer @ 99 Pts
    Heavy Armour; Battle Standard Bearer; Knightly Vow
    Twilight Banner

    1 Warhorse

    8 Knights of the Realm @ 216 Pts
    Lance; Heavy Armour; Shield; Barding; Knightly Vow

    1 Gallant

    9 Warhorse

    15 * Men-at-Arms @ 107 Pts
    Halberd; Light Armour; Shield; Standard; Musician

    1 Yeoman Warden

    15 * Men-at-Arms @ 107 Pts
    Halberd; Light Armour; Shield; Standard; Musician

    1 Yeoman Warden

    15 * Men-at-Arms @ 107 Pts
    Halberd; Light Armour; Shield; Standard; Musician

    1 Yeoman Warden

    15 Peasant Bowmen @ 106 Pts
    Longbow

    2 Pegasus Knights @ 165 Pts

    1 Gallant

    3 Pegasus

    8 * Questing Knights @ 252 Pts

    Casting Pool: 4

    Dispel Pool: 3

    Total Army Cost: 1504
    =====================================================

    Now the real question: is it any good?

    Your Paladins don't have any Virtues, the units of PB are only 101 pts, and I don't see a point in taking a Twilight Banner for a single character not joined by any units. Other than those little annoyances I don't see a big problem with the peasant based army.
    If a tree falls in the woods and there's no one 'round to hear it is it still my fault.

    By my count the PB units are at 95 pts each...

    I'm a fan of giving my characters multiple smaller magic toys rather than a single big one, so I'd give the general something like the virtue of discipline, enchanted shield, and morning star of fracasse, or maybe the virtue of confidence and the gauntlet. You should give your BSB a virtue, too. (The War Banner and virtue of Duty combo makes him into a CR monster, effectively giving a +3CR. )

    Your single lvl2 damsel won't do much... I'd drop her to lvl1 and try to give her a couple of dispel scrolls.

    Three PKs are neat, though I'd give them a musician.

    I think your M@A units are a bit small... I'd go with two units of 25 rather than three of 16. M@A units usually shine when they're at least 20 men strong, I prefer them at 25 or 30.

    You should make one of the PB units into skirmishers, they're way more versatile. The other one you should cut down to 10-12 models, since a static PB line 16 models long tends to get in the way a lot...

    Though the way you've set it up makes buying the army easier, for sure. The M@A and PB unit sets use the same command unit sprue, and when I put my army together I used the command models from the BP sets as M@A. That way, 3 M@A boxes + 2PB boxes = 2x25M@A + 2x15PB. If you get me.

    Gah, AOL decided it wasn't going to work recently, so I haven't been on much. Anyway, hopefully they've fixed what's wrong (emphasis on "hopefully").

    "By my count the PB units are at 95 pts each..."

    It's just the way Army Builder writes it in a text summary. It puts the full cost of the unit first then the champion (or equivalent). It's 101 including the Villein.

    Thanks for your advice, I've revised the list so it includes your suggestions. I didn't make one unit of archers skirmishers. Partly because I want large blocks of archers raining down arrows Agincourt-style, and partly because I couldn't find the button on Army Builder...:

    =====================================================

    Read the rules. Do not post item, upgrade or costs per model. KU


    Casting Pool: 3

    Dispel Pool: 3

    Models in Army: 107


    Total Army Cost: 1497
    =====================================================

    I am not a veteran, but I think that your army has a bit too many peasants. So my suggestion is to drop one M@a and one PB and put some KE instead, unless
    you wanted it to be a peasant based army(which I guess you did).
