ok, i just want to ask if anybody considered using massed ranks of bretonian longbowman as a main unit [because they have skirmish and can shoot through themselves] and for instance, in a 2500 pts batle use 10 units of longbows, each conparised of 20 men. thats 200 longbows that sees everywhere and costs with skirmish about 1400 pts.... thats not too much when u can shoot anywhere, and through units, having also range of 30 .... so any comments please, cause i am considering buying this kind of a army... thanks!

so, what do you think? that 200 longbows will pepper enemy and the rest when it will came will be finished by those knights units and the lord with 5 WS8attacks.
Please i need comments if it has at least small chance of success.....
Shooty army of Doom Bretonnians? Well that's new
together with those 2 trebuchets, it might work! Go for heavy armoured with the trebuchets and lightly armoured with the bowmen. Seeing as the bowmen can run everywhere and shoot all over the field (almost), it could do well!
I would have men at arms and yeomen instead of errant knights and some less knights of the realm, just to keep it fluffy with a peasant army.
Have fun painting them though
Wow, this looks wicked. If you're starting this army you should really consider adding in some of the old squire models for variety.
I kill two dwarves in the morning, I kill two dwarves at night. I kill two dwarves in the afternoon, and then I feel allright. I kill two dwarves in time of peace, and two in time of war. I kill two dwarves before I kill two dwarves, and then I kill two more.

No no no! Bad idea, you guys have overlooked something major unless I'm missing something here... The army book say one unit of bowmen may exchange spikes for skirmish ability, yes that is correct you can only have one unit of skirmishers in an army so it is completely illegal.
Correct me if I've missed something, but I am unaware of any item or ability that removes the 0-1 of skirmish bowmen units...
OH my god! i overlooked it ! i am totaly blind, Thanks
but on the other side, you just ruined my whole army! Bad person! :realmad:
Damn! Sounded like fun
Now this thread is a bit pointless 'cause it can't possibly be done, so lock 'n roll!
