    looking for an army theme

    Here you go-

    I need inspiration for a theme to my army. I have played for many years, and played almost every army. Each time I have played with a theme present throughout the army. for example: My last was a shark themed lizards army, i went all out - kroxigors were the ware shark reaper mini- I exaggerated the fins on the skinks and gave them all green stuff shark tails- got bored with the southlands, and now i have picked up Brets again- i have all the models i need and have them assembled- now that i have worked out a balanced list, im sure that im going to go thru 07' with the Brets- im drawing a blank as to how to theme them- i was thinking dragon hunters- but opted against it as I did it b4- and I didnít think it was set up that way theme wise. The army works for me pretty well play wise- I murdered a ďturnie levelĒ undead army last night with it.

    Im not really asking for help with the army construction, what im looking for is inspiration. A starting point i can go wild with. I liked the dragon hunting idea at first but opted against it I have been there already and I didnít really feel it as E knights hunting down a dragon. Thereís not a real punch in the bunch thatís built to take on monster on its own.
    All the units complement each other. I was thinking a crusader theme but i feel id have to add a grail Reliquae- and I donít want to, so. Here I am any ideas? All the models listed are built and ready to prime/paint. Your ideas and history references will be well appreciated.

    Mike

    What about a crusading army built to destroy the evil that lurks in Moussillon- for a historical perspective you could research the crusade of Simon De Montfort against the Cathars of Southern France- plenty of reasons for Errant knights to go to prove themselves and win their spurs by destroing heretics, second only to infidels in a medieval knights hitlist

    In an earlier Bretonnian army book they mentioned the Marches of Couronne, a part of the Kingdom which had not yet been organised into a formal Dukedom. I think there was a hero called Roland who was in charge but as I remember the place was a little lawless and plenty of the land was still up for grabs, something most Knights Errant would be very interested in. Other than that I'd go with a great warrior going after a named enemy such as an Orc warlord or chaos hero who had wronged the warriors family. The Errants and hero could then be converted to include trophies and weapons from the pursued race.
