Default First fantasy list: 1000pt Bretonnians

this is my first Fantasy list, and I know that 1000pts is low in fantasy, this list is based on the Bret battalion contents but will be expanded later. My theory is hammer: Knights of the realm, hero on a Pegasus, standard bearer. Anvil: Men at arms on flanks, bowmen with stakes in center.
one question, what does a morning star do? it is the only thing I am unsure of that is in this list to get a round 1000pts. Yes it has like no magical resistance, but will probably face Son of Nurgle's Lizardmen most often.

Heroes

Paladin- 168
Heavy Armor, Hand Weapon, Shield, Lance, Morning star, Royal Pegasus, Virtue of Purity, Gromril Great Helm.

Paladin(standard bearer)-114
Heavy Armor, Hand weapon, Virtue of Knightly Temper.

Core

10 Men at arms-77
Standard, Yeomen Warden, Musician.

10 Men at arms-77
Standard, Yeomen Warden, Musician.

16 Peasant Bowmen- 132
Standard, Villein, Musician, Light armor.

8 Knights of the Realm- 216
Gallant(Free), Musician, Standard.

8 Knights of the Realm- 216
Gallant(Free), Musician, Standard.

Total:1000pts

C&C appreciated

nice list...

i dont know much but it does seem good that you replaced some of the men at arms with archers to add some ranged power

Good list, only criticism(and my own preference) is the two squads of knights of the realm,I'd really only take one and spend the rest on something else,possibly a damsel with a dispel scroll(for the Lizardmen)or you could invest in some Pegasus Knights.Also your Paladin is a bit hefty on points to my preference, Usually for my 1k points i have:


Paladin w/ Knights Vow
Lance
Shield
Barbed Warhorse
Virtue of Noble Disdain 100Pt's

Cheap and nasty.Made this guy to hunt down lone enemy units or war machines.Also to pack a punch if with the Knights of the Realm.Never leave home without him

Paladin w/Battle Banner
Barbed Warhorse
Conquerors Tapestry 99Pt's

Usually put with a group of Knights of the realm i put this guy out with them to smash up weaker units first for easy Victory points due to Conquerors Tapestry and to flank harder hitting units

Damsel(Lvl 1) w/ Dispel Scroll 95Pt's

8x Knights of the Realm w/ Full Command 214Pt's

Used to smash through weaker opponents and mostly used to destroy heavier units

22x Men-At-Arms w/ Full Command 140Pt's
Spears
Supported by the damsel mostly used to hold up flankers or to destroy weaker units.Spears used for two rank fighting for as much hits as possible.Sometimes helps win games

20x Bowmen w/Full Command
Light Armour 160Pt's

Sit back and let the arrows fly sums it up

Special Units

3x Pegasus Knights w/ Full Command 195Pt's

Used to stop flankers and take out enemy missile units

Summary:

10 Calvary
3 Flyer's
43 Infantry



Total:1000pts

*Henderson*

PS Morning Stars add +1 strength on first round of combat

Well the battalion has those numbers, and your lizardmen will close kind of fast, in 1500-2000 point range I will have a Paladin to keep the peasants in place using the Virtue of Empathy, more knights (what else? :), maybe some skirmisher bowmen, and +8 men at arms to both units.
need more lances on the field...

as I said before, the list is based on the contents of the Battalion, I try to be as cheap money wise as possible, and that means costly leaders :P. I thought that the Brets were to win with hellish charges...

Oh yes, can anyone tell me what a morning star does?

I would think so but you wouldn't be using your shield so no +1 armour save for your guy.

I may be wrong consult a Senior Bret player or they may post here.

I don't play Bretonians but I can tell you that archers work virtually the same for all armies.

If they get into close combat, they are more than likely dead. 95% of the time. So do not give them a standard, ever. You'll just end up giving away an extra 100 Victory Points to your opponent.

Drop the standard and champion, take only a musician.

Other than that, the list looks great!

The gromril thing lets him re-roll a failed save, but w/o shield that would put his unmodified save at a 4+, but then blessing that's a 5+ ward because of the Virtue of purity...
Use depends on target I suppose...

@Alasi- Units with the Peasants Duty (men at arms, bowmen) do not confer victory points to the enemy for a lost standard, it's a bret thing. They're peasants, no one cares.

If you drop the musician you can get 3 more Men At Arms or 2 more more bowmen.
