ok im sure i'll take flack for asking this but since im new to brets what should i get to start with? obviously a general the book and a standard bearer but what else?
PS if someone can just give me a link to the most recent one of these topics i'll just delete this one.
There used to be a big sticky for new players.. Looks like they're not around anymore though.
Your army needs at least one unit of knights of the realm to be legal, so you will want a box of them. After that it is pretty much what theme do you want for you army? What is your style of play? Do you want peasants mostly, knights mostly, or a balance?
I will say that an all knight army is pretty powerful, very easy to use, and will get boring. Archers are an excellent unit, especially as skirmishers. Pegasus knights are excellent. The trebuchet is very good. I don't really like the grail relique, and don't think its all that good. I'm not a fan of en at arms either due to the models, but people do use them very effectively.
Probably the first things you will need are lots of knights though.
The battalion box is a good start as it gives you a mixture of knights and peasants so you can then decide which way you want to go- all knight, all peasants or a mixture.
A unit of Knights of the Realm is mandatory though

honestly I have two uses in mind for the army the first is to play against my freinds (where I will definatly be using peasents) the other is for tournament play where I will be using the most useful units that have presented themselves in my games against my freinds. I want my games to be fun against my freinds and in tournaments. anyway what do you all recomend for starting in this army.
PS this is what i am thinking about right now:
1 box of pegasus kights (so i can use the unit)
a hero and a standard bearer
and another box of knights of the realm
is this wise? I only have about 250$ to spend so this is what i came up with please help
I just want to say to everyone
That's the real original bunny. Notice the feet.
Yeah definitely get knights of the realm, then get either a set of yeo horsemen, or more knights of the realm if your going for mounted. For more ground, men at arms, or bowmen.

Note: You don't needto get pegasus knights box, they come in battlaion.
with extra money, buy grail knights
