Hello, i was thinking about doing a Bretonnia Army based off their kingdom being on the borders of the forest of Arden. I was thinking about using a color scheme of Dark Green, Gold, and white with the symbol being a black wolfs head. Now this is were it gets intersting. Instead of using normal peasent archers i use wood elf glade guard (the ones with the hoods covering their faces) to represent how they hunt and fight in the forest. I think it would look a little cooler then the standard peasent bowmen. Ill try to creat a more fleshed out fluff one later, just tell me what you think!
You may want to include some Beastman skulls as trophies. Or maybe even some Wood Elf skulls! Those would be the major enemies of humans in the area.
i like this idea, you can also do a lot with the bases, to make it more forestlike you can also add lots of fallen leafs and tree stumps on the bases.
I would also refrain from moving the paintscheme too much towards "Camo". This is still a feudal world in which color was used to communicate and intimidate. Elves wear muted colors and skulk around in bushes, the soldiers of bretonnia show they are present and to be reckoned with! 8Y
And to make it easier to see them and get out of their way as they run. 8X
Do not question the dice gods for their wrath is swift and terrible.
Sounds like a pretty good idea. I'd take heed of what Zemaphore has said though, in regards to the colours; the knights seem to be very proud of their heraldry, and would probably still display it. Your green and gold could still be used, as could the wolf head, but the knights at least would probably still have their own personal heraldry on display.
Peasants you could probably keep the green and gold scheme. I doubt they would all have personal heraldry and to be honest they're probably quite happy NOT being seen! Banners and pennants and the like would probably still be coloured, for communication purposes (as was pointed out earlier)
Otherwise, a great idea, a lot of opportunity for creative basing at the very least.
If you could get hold of the old Bertrand the Brigand mini he would be a great champion for your archers- Errol Flynn Robin Hood type that he is

sounds like a cool idea. the only trouble that i see, is that your army would be very high in skirmishers and infantry. No idiot is going to step out of the trees and fight on an open field against knights, and no knight is going to try and ride a warhorse in to root him out.
So, for cav, i'd use mounted yeomanry. But you can do whatever you like i suppose.
