I have been on a list writing tear lately and have made a bunch of themed and goofy lists. Last night I came up with this 2800 point UL all cav Bret style list. After looking at it a bit I think it might actually be pretty good. What do you all think?

What unit(s) are you running the VL and WK in?

Baby Vamp Goes with the Blood Knights.
VL and WK go with the Black Knights. Or in a pinch with the TK Horseman depending on deployment.

In that case, I would drop one Black Knight and take Banner of the Barrows instead. One BK is 26 points +9 points remaining + 15 points from banner of swiftness = 50 points for Banner of Barrows. This will also help your WK and if you need to run them 3 wide, it will give you more even ranks.

Also, in general, trading 1 wound and "1 attack" for +1 to hit for the rest of the unit would be worth it.

Thanks I will retool when I get home. Question though don't I need to be 5 wide for rank bonus?

You need to be five wide for CR, but not to break steadfast. Also it reduces what your opponent can deal back in damage to the BK and helps CR that way.

Hey alabaster, I was looking today for that rule on 3 wide to break steadfast. Everything I have read so sar seems to say ranks to count for steadfast on Cav needs to be 5 wide. Thanks!

So yes, the cav bus does need to be 5 wide to break steadfast. On page 60, I think, it says you just need more ranks, but on page 42 (I think) it says they need to be 5 wide. Brettonians, though, count as having a full rank if only 3 wide.

Thanks! 3 wide would fit with the undead Brets theme. Would just have to generate CR the old fashioned way.
