I need help to beat my friends empire army with my bretonnians.
He has two great cannons (uh oh) a lot of handgunners, halbediers, some white wolf riders, a few wizards, greatswordsman etc.
I wonder if anybody can give me any tactics to try and withstand his artillery so i can get to his infantry safely.
If you can help me i will be grateful
His army seems to be suited specifically to destroy Bretonnians. The only way that I see to get the one up on him is to use a large force of Peasant Bowmen. I mean like 600-800pts worth , all with light armor and 1 with skirmishing to make you harder to hit. I also recommend that you use a Prophetess, 2-3 Damsels and a BSB to lead the army if you have more than 2000pts (Y) , otherwise just use a strong group of mages and a BSB. Finally top it off with some pegasus knights if you have the points . And of course you can't forget the 1 required unit of Kotr.
If a tree falls in the woods and there's no one 'round to hear it is it still my fault.
what does bsb mean?
[battle standard. of course
Battle Standard Bearer. In fact.
Green is good
hello MICHAEL 'the bretonnian hero' now i know who YOU are muahahhahahaha
BUT thsi is the same empire army i have trouble beating, bretonianhero is my friend and i always lose to my other friend who uses empire, but bretonianHero hasnt actualy played him yet him yet, michael try aking for tactics WEN U NEED THEM,
Pegasus knights or the trebuchetwill make short work of the artillary crew.
BTW he also has some flagelants which may cause alot of trouble for bretonnia, all i can say is try and kill them with any means necasarry to prevent ur knighjts having to fight them, flagelants will never run in combat or lose any wounds for losing, they are also frenzied making them imune to phsycology.
halberdiers,militia,spearmen should not be to much of a problem.
QUOTE: ALOT OF HANDGUNNERS.... :huh: are u crazy man he has like 20...hardly alot, besides, no match for my cunning plan.
OH WELL, if u lose u lose, u learn alot from losing, you learn even more from losing to a more experienced player..... if u know his tactics u can counter him next time.
thats why i dont plan to lose next time....
use the peg knights to ge to is artillery ASAP, deploy on the sides and screen with peasants to negate as much fire power as possible to the knights, it should leave no problem, divide and conquer
trust me its always scary to go up agaisnt cannons, but even so your in combat on the second turn, so if he still wants to shoot up your knights he has to go thourgh his own units.
pegasus knights will also kill em.
Go for, make bretonnia proud
I think pegasus knights should do a good job dealing with his cannon crew. (Y)
