ok, question 1: whats the deal with the blessing af the lady? do all my knights get it if i prey on the first turn? can someone explane, kind of a confusing rule...
question 2: with my first hero choice, the paladin, dose he have to have a battle standard? even in small point games. like at the moment i am wanting to make a small, 500 to 1000 point bretonni army to play at GW. (yep, have fallen in love with the lady of the lake.
question 3: at what point limit should i start to purchase a virtue for my hero's?
question 4: are peasent men-at-arms any good? looking from there stats they look fairly poor. i like the look of the models but i want to make an army that can win, not one that realys on good looks to pull through. for the purpse of this post i am making a 1000 point army. should i take morebowmen or men-at-arms?
number 5: trebuche... worth it?
tis aboot it for now. cheers
I'll try to answer your q's as best I can.
1. Yes, if you pray on the 1st turn, all your knights receive the blessing. There are
some knights (e.g. Grail) who'll have it whether you pray or not, but most of your
knights will only have it if you pray.
2. You MUST have a battle standard bearer in any Brett army. This kind of sucks in 1000 point (or less) games. You do get the battle standard for free, though!
3. Depends on which virtue you want. The virtue of empathy is cheap and useful if you've got
an infantry block you need a hero in. I'd say stay away from virtues in games of less than
1K points though.
4. In a recent game, my peasants ewere the only guys who did good for me! They're
useful for gaining full rank bonus, but are a bit slow. If you do take them, you probably want
a knight in with them to give them decent leadership and a bit of oomph. I've found that
bowmen are pretty useless at generating wounds, but they're cheap. Either take none or
lots (30+), but don't expect them to win battles for you ...
5. You pays your money and takes your choice. I haven't used one yet, but I would if I'd
got one painted up. It's always nice to have a S7 weapon to destroy chariots with.
Just a comment about needing to take a BSB even in small games, yes that is true but if you use warband rules then it is nullified. Look them up if you don't feel like having two paladins in small games. Or, just play big games!
Peasants are decent for their points cost, I would always take archers. They're cheap for what they do, and I find they actually kill things. I take one large unit and give them the skirmish upgrade.
The trebuchet is worth it if you are good at guessing. Plus it eats up points so you have less knights in the army, and makes your list a bit more varied, fairly good I'd say.
you can take a damsel as your general though cant you? instead of taking 2 paladins. i am a fan of magic.
I'd say the treb is pretty darn hip for its points. It hits really hard, most elite infantry don't like it.
I also agree with peasant archers. They're cheap and with a massive unit of them they can actually do some damage as Strewart said.
And the fact you have to have a BSB might suck...if you didn't get an extra character slot!(Y)
i suppose the BSB can come in handy is under 2000 point games... nothing like having another character to whoop ass...
I used to be a heavy character user. I've tried to back down from that position a bit. BSB's are one department I dont slouch in though. Honestly if your not going to take a duke as a character (or cant) then your battle standard is your most powerful powerful character in all probability. My staple is warbanner and duty which is insanely potent for a hero. Any non stubborn unit will almost definitely lose to a charge by that unit.
