um i was wondering what good tactics for knights were as well as what the best size of a unit was
oh and what are mounted squirs icant find them anywhere in my army book
oh and i find it hard to make army lists that are exectly 1500 or 1000 pts so how many points can i go over or be under to still be a 1500 or 1000pts army?
Answering in reverse order...Originally Posted by marshall_lannes
You can be as far under as you want, but if you and your opponent agree to a 1500 pt. game and you field only 1405, you should be aware that you're at a serious disadvantage. Being 5-15 pts below the max is common. In a friendly game, you may be able to go above the limit by 5-10 (depending on your friends of course). In a tournement, you may never exceed the points limit for any reason.
Mounted squires are, I believe, mounted yeomen. The name changed in the most recent army book.
For a discussion on unit size, check the "bigger is better" thread on this forum. Some say 6, some say 9, some even use 12 soemtimes. The key to brettonians is to use knights in multiples of 3 so that you get the full benefit of the lance formation.
The best tactics for knights is to charge when you can, and avoid getting charged always (these are very likely the same tactics for most units, actually). As you play more games, you'll learn to tell between a good charge (a combat that you will win and that you won't end up getting counter-charged and slaughtered after) and a bad charge (one that sets you up to be counter-charged and slaughtered).
