I was thinking assigning these champions some of the special rules from Hail Caesar, and as long as they are alive (make them test for wounds in combat just like a general) the unit they are with would benefit from that rule.
Of course we have to have a Black Knight. He may not be completely evil, but he is a force of chaos and lawlessness, defying the rule of law which Arthur, and of course Good Count Raymond, wish to impose on their truculent barons. He's usually with the Black Company's cavalry.

I always enjoyed Sir Gawain and the Green Knight in school. The idea of a 'fairy knight' in archaic armour and lost in time appealed. I also wanted to paint one of the Games Workshop LOTR Rohirrim, just because.

Next up is the Red Knight, full of berserk rage and leading furious charges against the enemy. He's from the Old Glory Crusader Command set.

|Guillame d'Or, Troubadour Knight with his fool|
Yes, they are inspired quite a bit by the similar character in a very old Bretonnian army list from a few editions ago of Warhammer.
Finally there's the Brown Knight, or Hermit Knight, Sir Abelard. He went to the Holy Land, was presumed dead and his true love went into a convent. When he returned after many years, he took vows of poverty and chastity and lives in a small hermitage, patrolling the roads for bandits. He looks old and grouchy to me. He's from the OG Crusader Command Pack and is supposed to be the Hospitaler Grand Master.

Here is Iago the Black, Mercenary Captain of the Black Company. Cunning and intelligent, he gets decent command rolls (command 9, combat +3). He is also the only figure I purposely bought for the Black Company. The rest were second hand dark age figures bought cheap and unified with some black paint and wash to hide their otherwise garish paint schemes
