    Doesn't your general have to be on a pegasus to be able to take more than one unit of pegasus knights? I've been wanting to do do a bretonnian army, mostly because of the peggys. If I get around to it, I fully intend to run 2-3 characters on a pegasus backed by 3 units of 3 pegasus knights.

    If you have 3 PKs in a unit, then it is only one unit, so OK to do without your General on a peggy.

    I have not found Mounted Yeomen to be worth a darn. Personally, I would drop one unit for a treb - which are now the best stone thrower in the game for the points. If you drop the other MY unit, with all of the points left over, I would try to add a 6 unit lance (or two if you don't want a treb.) 8th edition means you must combo-charge units. With the free champ and maybe just a musician (no standard bearer needed), it really helps to have all those attacks on the charge.

    If you are not sure who you are facing, it does not hurt for the 5 points to add braziers to the archer units for some fire damage to hurt the regen units.

    Another decent troop I really like (since you have Grail Knights) is a Grail Reliquae with a few extra pilgrims. They can hold up nearly any unit for a turn or two to slam a lance in the flank. You will find you really need an anvil unit, since all you really have with the lances are hammers. There is also a sticky in the Bret forum for great Lord builds, which could also help you build some good pallys.

    Two trebs are lots of fun! However, I do like a unit of archers as they are just so annoying that eventually your enemy has to send someone after them just to shut them up (lousy Brets with a 30" archer range...) and that is a unit not going after your knights. Usually after a few turns the units are so tight together that I don't want to risk treb shots in case they drift on top of my guys - so the trebs are silinced for me after a few turns, it seems.

    So, your answer is - no MY, two trebs, reduce your archer units down to 12-15 each and then maybe you might have enough left over to add a bare bones lance of 6 KEs.

    Which one is your lord?
    Also where is your BSB. Brets are required to have one.
    You can't have 3 banner of chalons, only 1 of each magic item.

    Agree about dropping the Mounted Yoemen as there ehh... 2nd treb is always usefull.

    Your fine on the PK as you have one unit of 3.

    Also i think you may have missed a spot for your 2nd character in one of your lances.

    I would drop both sets of Bowman to 10 and use the points to pick up a damsel, level 2 with Sign Spell, dispel scroll.

    After the adjusment for the Bowmen and MY which i would use to add a damsel and another treb, if you have anymore add more knights. ALso, I personally prefer Knights errant over KoTR as theres is a lot of fear stuff out there and you can ignore that on charge. Keep a character with your units and the -1 WS and Ld drop will not be noticeable. anything your gonna hit with WS4 will probably also be hit by WS3.

    And welcome back to game!
