253 Bretonnian Lord:
Virtue of Heroism (Heroic Killing Blow)
Heartwood Lance (re-roll failed to wounds)
Dragonhelm (+1 armour and 2+ ward against fire)
Shield, Royal Pegasus, HA, Knights Vow (immune to panic from peasants)
121 Paladin(BSB is free upgrade)
Crown of Command (Unit is stubborn)
Shrieking Blade (Unit causes fear)

130 Damsel (lvl 2, Beast)
303 Knights of the Realm x 11 w/ FC & Banner of Swiftness (Paladin goes here)
207 Knights of the Realm x 7 w/ FC & Discpline Standard (General goes here)
50 Men-at-Arms x 10 (Damsel bunker)

278 Grail Knights x 6 w/ SB & Banner of Defense (4+ Ward vs Str. 5 shooting)
90 Field Trebuchet
90 Field Trebuchet
My first thought when I looked at this list was shock as it's essentially an all-cavalry list. I've never played one and don't know exactly how it's going to play out. I like my chances however, as the I've got two units that can really stick (my stubborn KotR and my ld 10 KotR), two assault oriented units (QKs and GKs), solid war machines, and a lord that can really put a hurt on bigger sized models (Heroic Killing Blow ftw!). The gameplan will be to get my stubborn KotR stuck in with (fingers cross) big blocks of str 3. troops and make it a pain for the rest of my opponents army to bring themselves to bear without having to go around this unit or killing them to a man. In the mean time, I will focus my other 2-3 lances on an enemy of opportunity. The Trebuchets will give support, weakening the unit for my lances to finish off. The damsel is primarily for magic defense but id love to get a Wyssan's Wildform off to raise my knights (especially the stubborn unit) to str. 4 tou. 4. for staying power. Beasts is also a great lore for the -1 to cast on cavalry units!
Comments, suggestions, or experiences with/against all-cav forces would be great to hear!
