in the stories in the army book, the focus is always switched from him to another duke, such as landuin.
but i really think he i awesome. why, because he was braver than anyone else ever in the old world, he isnt made out to be the best fighter, (ie landuin's goodness) but he was incredibly brave, and always met the challenge, do you agree
Umm.. he was the first devote of the Lady, she appear directly to him and blessed his banner. He alone began to setup the foundations of Bretonnia, I'd say he was pretty damned important. He was after all the First King.but i really think he i awesome. why, because he was braver than anyone else ever in the old world, he isnt made out to be the best fighter, (ie landuin's goodness) but he was incredibly brave, and always met the challenge, do you agree
But the thing is Gilles wasn't the best knight and hero, but a uniter. Behind him the lands of Brettonia were slowly being cleansed of greenskins, its people rallying to one banner. This is his fame, the others all had their own fame and became known for it.
I agree that Gilles was brave, but Gilles united the lands of Bretonnia, whereas the other 13 fought along side of him. Each of the others had there own trait that they were known for. The reason that they switch from him to the others is because they were all pretty much equally important to the uniting of Bretonnia.
If a tree falls in the woods and there's no one 'round to hear it is it still my fault.
yeah your right but still i think theres a lack of good fiction on him and i dont understand why he wasnt more powerful, like sigmar. hmmmm, good point though
Lets get one thing straight: GILLES BEATS SIGMAR!!!
Sigmar is not a god, the peple of the empire just think he is. And Sigamr relied on an uberly powerfull weapon he scabbed of the dwarves whereas gilles made his.
Blackfire pass: Sigmar and a small army fight some orcs.
12th battle of Gilles: 14 men against an army of greenskins, skaven and beastmen.
Gilles own you all

Sigmar did fine without Ghal Maraz, just that when he got it, he was pretty much invincible.
And as Kuffy said, all he did was unite a few rowdy tribes. And even then, only because the Lady said so.

You wouldn't catch Sigmar letting some tart telling him what to do >;o)
What's with the raising of 2-3+ year old threads in this forum lately...
It's fluff related, so I see no harm. As for who would beat who, Sigmar would own Billes. The game is called Warhammer, Sigmar became a man-god. I don't see Gilles even seen as a saint. Sigmar would probably laugh at the Bretons. They follow some aquatic tart. Sigmar united the tribes of man by himself. It wasn't ordained by what i strongly beleive is some wood elf Sorceress deceiving the Bretonnians. He did it by his own hand (Yes he had help with the dwarfs, but he had saved their king) He made himself Emperor, which is higher than a king. It might be close because of that Witch Lady helping Gilles but Sigmar, with Ghal Maraz in hand would cave in Gilles skull, and any dwarf would agree with me on at least the warhammer part. Comparing Gilles to Sigmar is like comparing King Arthur to Conan.

If a Million Guardsmen die, that's a statistic. If one marine dies, that's a tragedy.
In a fight between Gilles and Sigamr, though, Aenarion would win. He is the goddam Chuck Norris of Warhammer.
