    If you are starting out, this is the thread to read. I am hereby asking all seasoned Bretonnian players to come forth with their thoughts on starting a Bretonnian army.

    The purpose of this topic is to preven a swarm of "hi, im new to Bretonnians. Got any starter tips?" and "What units should I get?" type posts, and gather all such stuff riiiight in here.

    So, new aspireing Bretonnian generals, feel free to ask questions about starting a Bretonnian army in this topic, and all Bretonnian generals who knows their army well, feel free to share your ideas on starting such a force with the new kids.

    All other posts that i feel should belong in this topic, will be deleted.

    Well, I was thinking of starting Brettonians. (getting the codex next month)
    So i wonder, witch is the "standard" army to get and build it up from there?
    And, is the 100$ box a good start? + My friend has somethings he has never used..He has 8 Knight's of the Realm (ur whats their names) a box of archers (never even opened&#33 and a Duke mounted on a Griffon (Can he be mounted on a griffon? I mean, Is i legal in the rules? Cos' the new Duke sits on a horse )

    You could have Hippogriffs in the last rules, so i believe you can have them in these aswell. Most races can have big monsters.

    Name one that doesnt have big monsters for lords?

    Hey&#33; Don&#39;t ask me.
    I&#39;m only familiar with WH 40K (as a Daemonhunters and Eldar player).
    So, a Hippogriff mounted Duke would be legal?

    Skaven?

    As for starting Brets...
    Start off with designing a 500pt army, play around with them for a bit to be sure that you like them, then paint your army.
    Rinse and repeat with 750pts, 1000pts etc. etc.

    In small games units of 5 Knights with a character work well, especially if supported by ranged troops.

    Well, I guess I have to wait until the 1:st of March to get and start configuring my armylist.
    And what I have been thinking of making is an army with a MASSIVE ammount of Knights of the Realm and Grail Knights backed up by Peasant archers and all those led by a Duke (Maybe I will sneak in some pegasus to ).


    So what do you think?

    Is there anyone here who has played some games with the new Bretonnians and could make a tactica like in some of the different army sections. They are very useful.

    In a 2000 point game what do you thing the best size for a lance is?
    I was thinking something like 2 Units of 8 Knights of the realm with hero in each making 3x3, a unit of 5 Grail knights with a hero and a unit of 5 Questing knights.
    Maybe a unit of 6 for flanking. I have never been a major fan of infantry but some skirmishing peasant archers might be ok


    Name one that doesnt have big monsters for lords?
    Kislev, bear is hardly big and it is a special character.

    I would skip the men at arms and get some pegasus knights or more knights of the realm or maybe knight&#39;s errant.
