Hi everyone. I've been haveing a lot of trouble beating my friends bretonian army with my HE cavilry army. The're cavilry usualy thrash my poor silver helms becase of their lance formation, there 5+ ward save makes them almost imposible to kill and let's not even get started on pegusus knights! I could realy use some help. :cry:
use your mages to kill those f****** damsels. you have 9" moove, and they have only got 8", so you shouldnt really have trouble with their lance formations. just be sure that it is YOU who charges, and NOT the bretonian player. shoot their mutated birds down with your boltthrowers. CRASH! then you WIN!:yes:Originally Posted by Eltharion
Beating Bretonians is a pain in the rump!!
The best way I have found is to use eagles and shadow warriors to stop them from marching. Spells like the Howler wind and Pit of Shades can also help here. Then use bolt throwers, archery and magic to weaken there ranks.
Finally, charge them. If they don't charge, they don't win. Hit them with chariots and cavalry units in the flank and spearmen and infantry in the front. They can't win if you deny them the charge. (or at least win easily).
TOP TIP: If pegasus knights can see your lone mages/war machines/archers, you can see them. Don't be afraid to use spells like Uranon's Thunderbolt or fury of Khaine on them!!
The eagles sound like a great idea but the real problem is the Pegasus knights. With T4, a 3+ armor save, two wounds apiece and that 5+ ward save, THEY JUST DON'T DIE. Also, SH only have movement 8 because of their barding.
Remember that it is only a 6+ ward at str4 or below. So multi bolts will effectively give his pegasus knights a save of 5+ and a ward of 6+. Uranons thunderbolt is simular, only the ward save remains!!
Ha! So my friends been lying. I can't wait to tell him.

[QUOTE=Eltharion]what has he been lying about? the armour save???Originally Posted by gingerninja
He's been lying about the ward save. He's been using a 5+ ward save against all attacks instead of just the st5 and over attacks.
Bret all knight armies are hard to beat. Use stuff that is fast. Take chariots and dragon princes. That way you can deny them the charge and they will be pretty weak if they can't charge. Also use Eagles to redirect knight blocks and make them expose their flanks. Bolt throwers are killers for the pegasus knights. There are usually only 3 so that's only 6 wounds total you have to do. 2 RTB's is 12 shots that hit 50% so 6 hits and he will only have a 5+ AS and a 6+ WS. That with a thunderbolt could kill them in one turn. Like I said. If you deny the charge you take away their biggest strenght. The eagles can do that easily (by taking the charge and making the knights expose their flanks) and you have 18" chargers (DP and chariots). So get practicing on guessing and you should be able to charge him rather then him you.
