Having taken on that I need some magical defence and the fact we are likely to be playing 1500pt games now I have rewritten my list somewhat. Hopefully this will be correct within the percentage rules.

Lords

Prophetess of the Lady - 280pt
Level 4 Wizard
Warhorse
Silver Mirror

Heroes

Paladin - 95pts
Battle Standard
Barded Warhorse
Grail Vow

Core

9 Knights of the Realm - 240pts
Standard Bearer
Musician

9 Knights of the Realm - 240pts
Standard Bearer
Musician

10 Peasant Bowmen - 90 pts

10 Peasant Bowmen - 90 pts

10 Peasant Bowmen - 90 pts

Rare

Field Trebuchet - 90

Field Trebuchet - 100
Yeoman Craftsman

7 Grail Knights - 276pts
Musician

Adding the Prophetess and the Paladin to my unit of Grail Knights to bump them up to 9. I know my Bowmen wont be achieving much but I'm hoping to help screen my Trebuchets a little. The Grail Knights really are a hammer to bring down on units getting too close with the Knights of the Realm Protecting my Flanks.

Are my bow men just folly and I should replace them with some blocks of infantry?

Also which Lore would be the Best to choose for my Prophetess, they both have some good and bad points.

The hero lay out looks good, though I always like taking the virtue of duty and war banner for added CR. Lore of Life for your prophetess is a nice one to take, I've been using it in all my games.
I can see nothing wrong with two KoTR units with FC. The bowmen are good units, but myself I'd swap 3 small missile units for one or two large slightly more melee ones.
Onto my bane, Trebuchets. I have a curse on the things, they either misfire all the time, or get destroyed turn one by enemy fire, possibly my virtuous army trying to tell me they disdain all missile troops. But with the new rules, I think two of them would be great support to weaken the enemy. The grail knights, I also can't see a problem with

* My mistake meant Knights of the Realm.

I would have upgraded my Paladin a little more with the War Banner but I think i'm maxed out on points in that slot.

Also my Knights are Knights of the Realm not Knights Errant. Do you think I sould save some points and just have Errants instead?

I'm not sure what you mean by maxed out in the paladin slot, with no limit on the banner and max 50 points for a virtue, you have more points to spend, without even going near the limit for your 25% hero slot.

haha.

I've made that mistake many a times.
For some armies, this poses a new problem. However, it appears that Brett's are fairly inexpensive.

Trebuchets have been the bane of my Beastmen.
