I've been collecting brets for around 5 years now and I love them! However, times of late have taken their toll on my fair army and feel I need to purchase new models (using the 5th edition ones).
Although one thing nags at me, for the last few games I've played I feel that its not my tactical know-how that wins the battle but the sheer strength of the lance and the blessing, its allows me to make horrible mistakes and still come out on top. This is begining to get at me so I thought I'd start a new army but I can't get rid of my love for all things bretonnian. I just love their models and fluff and style.
So anyway what I'm asking is this. I'm buying new models, but what to get? I want to try and start fresh and leave the old models out of the way. I'm looking for an army that doesn't purely rely on the blessing or the super lance-o-peircing.
So what should I get? Please help.
well how about a heavily men-at-arms, peasanty army...and get some stuff that didn't come in 5th ed. such as the grail reliquae.
I feel the same about the all powerful knights- i've just bought some mounted squires- i want the army to feel a bit more like a medieval army- less mounted knights and more peasant grit :p

Is this a question?? Peasants! Peasants peasants peasants! Buy peasants! A core of M@A, MY and PB, maybe a treb and no more than one or two lances of knights for support. You take to the field of battle with that and still come out on top, you can bet your ass it's not because of some silly swamp lady and her blessing! No, that's pure tactical finesse right there, something to be proud of!
