I’ve only played one game of Kings of War so far, of any edition. I’m coming from a certain other mass battles system set in a fantasy world. I was originally planning on playing the Brotherhood (as my mainstay army consisted of Grail-seeking fantasy Frenchmen), but as that faction has now been split up, it seems like I’m going to have to choose between the Brotherhood’s successors.
As far as I can tell it looks like most of the peasants…er…villeins have migrated to the Brothermark, whereas the knights have generally moved to the Order of the Green Lady (notwithstanding one major exception, but I don’t have any Abyssal Hunt knights ready to go anyway). Would an all knight army be viable in 3rd edition Kings of War? Can I get away with having 90% Order of the Brotherhood, with some support from the Order of Redemption and maybe some allied bowmen from Kingdoms of Men?
What are the principal magic items a cavalry army should consider?
EDIT: Oh, one other thing that I should ask - do I need to field chaff (maybe Mounted Sergeants from Kingdoms of Men) to be successful with an all cavalry army? That’s very much the case in the other game, but is it in Kings of War?
