Lords of Bretonnia. I play a 2250pt mostly knight army. I use my 2 units of Grail Knights as flanking units. I am wondering if these units really need Musicians and standards in them. Also I'm wondering how large in number you veterans think they should be. My charging units are 8 KOR with a damsel in the middle with 2 dispell scrolls. I play it so if my charging unit cannot get a squad to break I send in the grail knights to flank them and help with clean up. Thanks in advance for your replies

Assuming the unit charging the front has a standard, then a standard on the flank is redundant, unless it's a BSB, and won't affect combat res. Of course, that unit won't always be flanking. Different circumstances in different games may call for the unit to serve some other purpose, in which case a standard may help swing an iffy combat. Then again, taking a standard could mean more VP's to the enemy.
A musician is a must. Brets don't have the greatest leadership, no better than Empire really. A musician can mean the difference in rallying or not.
I agree with David, if the unit at the front has a standard then the flankers won't. Also, there is no real right or wrong way to play warhammer. Grail Knights hit pretty hard on their own, in your experience has a standard helped the unit significantly? If it has, then keep them, if it hasn't then drop them. Nothing wrong with experimenting a bit, everyone will have a different opinion and preference.
As for unit size, as flankers you don't want them big and unweildy so 5 or 6 is probably a good number. And don't put them in lance formation.Aren't Grail Knights 0-1?Originally Posted by Warmaster
Grail Knights are a 0-1 unit restriction unless you bring the Bret king along for the ride.
