Each option will have some longsbow, Crossbow, LF battlegroups, it is...

TYW camps

I have almost completed painting my figures for the TYW but how I need to think about a camp, what tents did the Western European armies use? Or did they base their camps in villages and towns?

From personal experience the Later Crusader army is CRAP in a comp. It does not have any flexibility you almost have to reply on your opponent to stand still while you thump him with your knights. The crossbows will loose in a shoot out with bow or longbow. I would do the Plantagenet over the later ...

Awesome I have been looking for a knight heavy army that can handle a bit of rough going. Are your longbows protected or unprotected and do you take the swordsmen option?

I am not sure if I think the Latin Greece is as good as it gets for Knight armies, personally the Spanish Knight and the Catalan company armies are better. Though the Latin Greece has one interesting option;
4xTC
52x LF poor bw
20x KN superior, hvy armoured lance
equals approximately 800pts.

Thanks for the serious answers.

As the first items in my music collection were made of vinyl records and cassette tapes, which is why I can not remember my high school algebra to do the maths for myself.
