Well, with 27 Knights, 9 power dice and the overrated Helm of Commandment, you're going to take a hit in comp. Mostly because people are jackasses. When I first looked at the list, to be honest, I was going "What are you thinking?", but now that I know it's an army comp tourney, I know why the list is tuned down.

I think that many Knights are unnecessary. I'd drop a unit and spring for Grave Guard. I'd never trust my Lord to Skeletons. And while you can't boost your magic anymore without taking a major comp hit, you won't have enough to keep up, since you can only raise 1 knight at a time, and Skeletons die faster than Humans.

hey,

Thanks for the reply. I left the +1 Magic Level off my lord so i have 10 power dice. I understand what your saying about the black knights however I am unable to change my list as the deadline for dogcon has passed so this is the list i am running with for the tournament. I am going to Clash of the Titans in February so i may think about changing the knights for a unit of grave guard. Any magic banners/ supporting character ideas. I'm thinking 25 or so of them with command and great weapons.

Cheers,
