I have a whole Bretonnia Army downstairs in the basement that I have been putting off painting for somewhile - and I am putting together ideas for a theme - and though not original I am thinking of doing an English, Scottish and Welsh background to it. i.e Albion.
Lord - St George de Drakken - with the Men at Arms being Red/White with Dragon emblem
Pally - St. Andre the Lyon. - with his Men at Arms being Yellow/Red - with Lion emblem
Bowmen being Welsh.
The only problem is I have never heard anything about Albion at all - anyone got any thoughts.
As far as I know the Warhammer Albion is more like the ancient britain of Stonehenge etc. than medieval England, so im not sure how fluffy a brettonian army would be- why not stick to yur theme but have them coming from somewhere in Brettonia- wouldnt stop you using English, Welsh and Scottish heraldry on your army though- the crosses of st George and Andrew, scottish heart motifs, welsh dragons etc would look pretty good.

Thanks for the reply - much appreciated - I think I will keep the theme and have the army going to Albion to expand the Kings lands. St.George, St. Andre, Morgana le Fey, and a young Arthur - Leader of the Knight Errant etc. That will keep things pretty consistant.
The question comes in as to why Le Fay would actually go to Albion, seeing she is the high preistess of the Lady. Why not make a Merlin character? Use the prophetess rules though.
Albion itself is dotted with minor tribes and villages. Sort of pre roman colonisation.
May the Emperor forgive you, for his servants cannot.
Albion was the old name for Britain.
I'd say that Brett would be the best from that perspective. There was quite a large campaign associated with the place, so it might be an idea to check that out.
Yeah, there have been a campaign located on Albion. The island itself is very difficult to navigate to since its coast is covered in thick mist and there are few naural landings with most of the coastline made up from massive cliffs.
The campaign was about the Deamon Prince Be'lakor's corrupting of the wizards who protected the guardian stones on the island. Ultimatly the stones were saved from Chaos, and the most recent events on Albion is that the Lizardmen under the leadership of teh legendary Scar-leader Kroq-Gar have conquered the island, driven off most of the natives, started changing the climate of the island to be more tropical and started building a new temple-city called Requoncista.
Having a Brettonian force themed around Albion would be somewhat difficult to justify, since the island is pretty much isolated once again. I would say that your force could have participated in the campaign and saw extensive fighting then. You could say that their long stay on the island deeply affected the Knights, which have resulted in them "theming" themselves after it.
