    I looked over my 2500 point lists and all of them have around fifty knights in them max, do you not have mages? Heroes? Trebs? a lord? I too would like to see this list

    Seems about right if a bit on the high side. It depends on the list though.
    I tend to start with a core of 36 (four lances of nine) and then go from there.
    Points wise you should have a lance of at least 9 grail knights throw in 5 characters standard and you are looking at everything else in errants and kotr.

    So high side yes but not too bad.

    I prefer to run without grail knights and I use lances of twelve, others use fifteen it depends on the list completely, generally though you need a large number of knights

    Personally, I like the Grail Knights (because it lets me take the Reliquae!) and they terrify your opponent.

    I try to keep units around the same points cost so my opponent has a tough time deciding what to magic/shoot at. One big huge lance becomes the primary target for everything the enemy has. My usual strategy is to combo charge a 9 and a 6 lance together, instead of having a lance of 15.

    However, I would probably take the advice of those that have a better win/loss record than myself!! @The Maned Wolf - you are the Bret King!!

    Yeah I have a Lord and 2 hero choices and one trebuchet although i'm not sure if the equipment I gave them is good or not:

    Lord
    Bret Lord + Grail Vow+ Lance + Bret Warhorse + Virtue Of Heroism + Armour Of Agilulf + Gauntlet Of The Duel = 240

    Hero
    Paladin + Bret Warhorse + Virtue Of Confidence + BSB = 99
    Damsel + lv2 + Bret Warhorse + BARD + Dragon's Claw + Prayer Icon Of Quenelles = 171

    I'm not sure if I made any mistakes with how I equipped them, I have 3 squads of 12 Knight Errants, 2 squads of 12 KotR and 8 Grail Knights, I also gave them a bit of shooting with 2 squads of 10 Peasant Bowmen. Any advice on this list will be well appreciated and hopefully my points are right too.

    Drop the prayer icon unless you have a sneaky bait and flee plan which isn't advisable. Get the errantry banner. I'm assuming you have full command on the units.
    A level 4 might be a better idea. If not drop to a level one and kit for dispel.
    Drop 1 knight for each character if they are going in full lances as well. Otherwise you will have unsightly floaters.

    That's just a quick what I'd do tbh.
