I was wondering i am trying to create a peasent based army and ive been told that damsels are a must instead of 4 palidins leading my squads. I wanted to know since my army is going to be with alot of men that i should even bother getting damsels. I was kind of thinking like the dwarfs who usually have no magic in their armies, this good for a peasent army?
You will need at least some magic even if it's just for defence. Generally armies that take no magic, like dwarfs, get all kinds of nifty ways to give themselves more dispel dice and generally protect themselves from magic, but Bretonnians don't.
If you don't want magic I would say take at least one basic Damsel scroll caddy to give yourself a bit of protection. That still leaves plenty of slots for your paladins, considering Brets get an extra character slot anyway. Of course it does depend. If you're playing against dwarfs or someone who doesn't use magic you can get away without having a damsel.
Thou shalt remember:
Warhammer Fantasy armies do NOT have Codices. They have Army Books.

You could also do some cool conversions/create some cool fluff about what happens to the boy children that are taken by the fey enchantress if you didn't want a damsel.
Brets don't exactly get an extra choice, just because they have to use it to field an Army Standard Bearer.
As for lack of damsals- bad move not taking magic. But you could manage some way to get magic in their in other guises, like the suggested young men.
If you just don't like the models but like the females, go to Reaver Minis, they have some really good-looking (no pun intended- sorta) female minis.
Besides, who doesn't love the Magic Resist 1 she adds to said knights.
