A good build but i prefere a monster hunter with VoH and heartwood lance. If you stick with this build replace shield with Enchanted shield.

Prophetess - Lv 4, Silver Mirror, Warhorse - 280
Good no probs here, maybe swap mirror for a cheaper dispell scroll

Paladin - Battle Standard, Banner of the Lady, Virtue of Discipline, Warhorse -189
Lose the banner of lady, he needs more protection. Lose Virtue it has no use in 8th ed. Consider Gromil helm and Virtue of Purity.

Paladin - Pegasus, Enchanted Shield, Virtue of Knightly Temper, Lance - 164
What do you ahve planned for this guy. IMHO he is a waste of points with this build. Get rid of him

8 Kights of the Realm - Full Command - 216
Good although a magic banner would help them

8 Knights of the Realm - Full Command - 216
Same as above

32 Men at Arms - Full Command - 187
Need more men, at least 40+

16 Peasant Bowmen - Full Command - 116
Lose the champ and banner they do nothing for the unit. Add braizers for negating regen

8 Grail Knights - Full Command, War Banner - 369
Awsome. Just replace with banner of flame

Trebuchet - 90
Cant go wrong with these. Consider a second
You have got all the right tools for the job but they neeed tweaking slightly. Have a look at what i have suggested and tell me what you think.

With my suggestions above, i have worked out you will have roughly 132 points spare. Use these points to add a lvl 2 beast damsel with pray icon to lead the Men at arms.

thank you for the advice, i've made a few changes taking it into account the list now looks like;

Bretonnian Lord - Warhorse, Virtue of Heroism, Heartwood Lance, Shield - 209
Prophetess - Lv 4, Silver Mirror, Warhorse - 280
Paladin - Battle Standard, Virtue of Purity, Warhorse, Gromril Great Helm - 124
Paladin - Pegasus, Enchanted Shield, Virtue of Knightly Temper, Lance - 164
Damsel - Lv 2, Prayer Icon - 130
8 Kights of the Realm - Full Command, Banner of Swiftness - 231
8 Knights of the Realm - Full Command, Banner of Chalons - 226
44 Men at Arms - Full Command - 247
16 Peasant Bowmen - Braziers - 101
8 Grail Knights - Full Command, War Banner - 369
Trebuchet - 90
1969

the paladin on the pegasus would mostly be used to hunt war machines, lone characters and then help out in combat with a few flank charges so i thought the extra attacks from the virtue might help out. Although i do have one question regarding you're advice, would flaming attacks from banner of flame really help the grail knights more than +1 combat res?

The grail knights proberly wont need the extra combat res, they should enough damage through their attacks providing you have charged. All the banner of flame does is allow the Grails to charge a elite enemy unit and negat the regen save.

I have found that there is more and more units that have access to a regen save and also the lore of life sig spell grants regen save. I would proberly also advise putting your lord into this unit to make a really deadly deathstar capable of killing elite infantry, monsters and units with lots of regen saves (Skaven come to mind).
