Hey, so. This may be a dumb question, but in the Codex it says you can have a virtue and magic items up to 100 points for a lord. Just wonderin' if the cost of the Virtue is added into that 100 point maximum.
Thanks a bunch.
The virtue DOES count towards the limit as the entry states "Virtue and wargear for a combined total of 100 Points"
yup- that total is combined for a maximum of 100 pts

Did anybody ever get an official ruling on this from GW?
"May choose one Virtue from the Virtues of the Chivalric Knight list and a mix of magic items from the Common or Bretonnian magic items list with a maximum total value of 100pts."
This is exactly the same as the wording for all other army books without Virtues.
example Orc and Goblin
"May choose magic items from the Common or Orc & Goblin magic items list, with a maximum total value of 100 pts."
To me it just sounds like you are restricted to one virtue and is irrelavant of points.
The High elfs have a very similar wording where they replace the word 'virtues' with 'honours'. They count the points of the honours along with any other magic items. Therefore, it makes sense that virtues also count towards the 100 or 50 point limit.
If you think about it, without this restriction, Bretonnian lords will be vastly overpowering for the opponents
It's only a lance of Grail Knights... won't hurt at all!
O.O I never read it like that but that makes sense!
There once was a Lord named Vlad,
Who's fighting skillz really were mad.
He killed and he maimed,
He spilled blood in Khorne's name.
And the fact that he's legal makes me glad
(special thanks to Uriel Zarium for the last line/touching it up)
Green Knight - It is not the same as every other army book, as this ones states a "combined" total. That means the cost of virtues and wargear are combined.
