Hi everyone. I was at first thinking about doing a peasent themed Bretonnia Army but looking at their crappy WS i dont think it would be worth it. So I have already planned to use M@A models for empire foot soldiers because honestly i think the new empire modles look like crap. But i was wondering...do you think i would be able to use bretonnia trebuchets? I love the fluff ideas for it and i was thinking i could use just the rules of and related to the trebuchet from the bretonnia codex and have the rest empire statistics. DO you think it could work? tell me what you think.
I think you would be better off counting it as a mortar.
I like the M@A and think their models are excellent. They will make a nice empire army.
Is it me or does any other necron player get annoyed when they see people saying "Necrons eat souls". How is that even possible as souls are part of the warp and necrons want nothing to do with it? Eh probaly me just me being picky.

For example, cross-bowmen and archers, no handgunners. No cannons and mortars but can use "ballistae" and "trebuchet" models with cannon and mortar rules.
These things can make an army unique and provide challenges for play and conversion.

Got a "good" rumour from a GW staffer? Forget about it, LO'ers know more than any random GW shop staffer.
Voor alle nederlanders:
The Dutch Legion
I think you're thinking about Ireland. I mean- Stirland. You know, the guys with the River Patrols. Colors are green and yellow, or White and Yellow for the patrols. They are pretty backwards... I just love GWs 'interpretations'.
Anyways, the mortar is the closest item to it, and is still legal. Unfortunately, most people are probably going to call BS on your army, since it's going to look too much like Brettonians unless you do some nice conversions.
kay- cheers :drinking:
Actually the fluff provides and easy-out.
There are several towns/regions that are constantly changing hands between Brettonia and the Empire. This Empire army could be one that was recently annexed and is still using the Brettonian equipment.
I use all M@A models for my swordsmen. Shoot, give them the polearms and they have halberds. There isn't really a problem. You can make archers with them, or if you have some of the X-bows/guns from the empire skirmisher set and you can make crossbowmen or handgunners. If you're dying to use the trebuchet model (more expensive) you could easily pass it off as a mortar or Hellstrom Rocket Battery. You can even use the Brettonian knights for the Empire knights. Who cares. at least they're knights and not cold ones. The stats are nearly the same. If you build the force and paint it the way you want, you'll like it and enjoy playing with it more. Using different/alternative models should be the fun part of playing the game. There is nowhere mentioned that you have to use the exact model only for what GW says it is. If anything, with this army you have 2 armies. The only thing you should do, is have fun modelling and playing the game. Part of being a nice player is avoiding confusion for the other player. So far, I can't see anything that you've said being confusing to the opponent. If you start using Beastmen with 2 hand weapons as your swordsmen, that would be confusing, but humans with armor and shields, look like swordsmen to me. The trebuchet looks like a mortar but bigger (which is a disadvantage to you - so the opponent shouldn't complain)
You could even use the Grail reliquae as a war alter imo. GW would probably thank you, because no one else in their right mind is going to buy that model.
