Quick question on Bretonnia, I'm wondering how you can tell the different types of knights apart. I mean other than the questing knights the errrant, realm, and grail knights all look identical. Is their something I'm missing or is this a valid question?
Wow, I just had a look at the newer models (my army is from 6th) and they're a bit harder to tell the apart. Still some basic things stay the same.
Errant: Basic knights without helmets or helms without ornamentation.
Knights of the Realm: Basic knights with helmets.
Questing Knights: Fancy knights.
Grail Knights: Fancy knights with Grail iconography.
The old models were much more distinct.
They are my bulwark against the Terror. They are the Defenders of Humanity. They are my SPESS MAHREENS!
Well my knights Errants have no helmets on.
Realm knights have a helmet but the little animal statue on top has been taken off and have big red crosses on their horses barding and shields.
Grail knights have the animal statue on and it is painted gold. They also have a grail cups painted on the barding of their horses instead of crosses.
Questing knights have giant swords and Pegasus knights have wings.
Much like he said,
Errants have no Ornamentation ... I used the old KotR models with the simple/no helmet heads from 6th Ed. And they have no heraldry on their mounts.
KotR have all the basic ornamentation and heraldry.
Questing Knights have Great Weapons. Even if you want to use the plastic KotR, you can just give them all Great Weapons and they make good QK.
Grail knights have their ornamentation plus Grail stuff all over them. I usually paint these guys predominantly white also to really set them apart has holy warriors.
If you look in the Bretonnia army book they show examples of each type of knight. Grail and Questing have their own specific models so they should be fairly easy to distinguish between. KotR and Errants have the same models, but use different heads.
