Now I am not a Bretonnian player and most likely won't be but I have an idea for a Bretonnian army theme that I think would turn out to be very fun and unique. I don't know if my idea is a new one or not but if it is I hope that someone tries it out and if I ever play you I be laughing the entire battle.
Ok, an entire bretonnian army that does not include a single horse. Instead use the cavalry bases and on the front half of the base have a footsoldier that matches the bretonnian theme and behind him have a small peasant character holding a pair of coconuts. An entire army made in this fashion would be hilarious in my opinion.
What yall think?
Oh, another Idea you could have a damnsel with the "holy hand grenade" and count it as a magic missile of some sort!
oh thats cool.....

This- I beleive- has already been done, and I believe that it was done by a forum member. However, it is a great project. I love the idea of it, but I'm not sure how you'd go about all the arm positioning and coconut making. Plus, I can easily imagine people whining about the true LoS benefit you'd gain by having such short "cavalry"
What is with the coconuts? It sounds ok but I don't see how foot soldiers could go that fast.
Daemonic cheese-how? Well, you would need to start with daemonic milk, i guess...
Coconuts allow a noble knight of the round to mount a 'horse'.
I think that this is a solid idea. I'm not sure that you are the first person to have it but then the chances of you bumping into one of the other people are probably miniscule.
The real challenge is the execution. Why not try putting a sample model together to see how much work it is going to be to pull your idea off. I think you are on to a winner but whether or not it will work across a whole army really depends on whether or not you are going to be able to complete the project.
After all the hobby world is littered with the crumbling remains of good ideas. Well and plenty of bad ones too...
Ah, a brettonian after my own heart. I'll drop a few of the ideas I had for my own army in here.
1) Trebuchet with a cow instead of the block of masonry. Converted it myself, but tricky due to the poor casting quality of the trebuchet (more greenstuff on the model than metal now....). Used the cow from the plastic giant, and fashioned a sling out of paper.
2) Grail Reliquae with the holy hand grenade. The unit fits round the idea of monks carrying a relic, and some of the battle pilgrims have quite a monk like look.
3) Questing knights with the coconut peasants. These guys come with the furniture for their horses (i think) which you could mount on the back of a peasant to replicate the film quite well.
4) The Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog made from greenstuff. Not really any existing rules that match, so you'd probably have to make your own.
5) Tim the Enchanter as a damsel. Empire wizard box can build an almost perfect Tim, just have him count as a damsel.
Ya Im sure its been done but I doubt its been executed that often. After some more thought I think I may attempt this. After I get done with my WoC it would be fun to take on a modeling project. Im thinking maybe only a 1k list or so but still could be cool.
As far as the line of sight Im sure that I will lose some game strategy there but running this heavily converted army I doubt I would care about the outcome of the game. I love the enchanted Tim Idea. There are a number of things I could try and do here and there. I just absolutely love that movie so this would be a very fun project for the furture. I gotta grab a book and check out the units to see what can be used for what. I gotta believe the bunny has a place somewhere
But thanks for the replies. Nice to know Im onto something good even though Im not the first.
