Welcome to Librarium Online!
Im gonna play a 2k game tomorrow against a friends bretonian list. From what i know he uses lots of calvary and very little magic... So im gonna go magic heavy most likely but i was wondering if anyone had any tips against bretonians?
Vampires are essentially the bane of brettonians. Brets need to win on the charge and lose in protracted combats, so your unbreakable army should be fine against him. Brets also fair poorly against terror causers, and the peg knights are especially vulnerable. All in all, you should be fine.
You can also take a magic lord combo
master of the black arts
take metal spell 6 is 2d6 str6 no as for his knights
it's pretty strong against him
Take multiple units of Black knights, which can charge through difficult terrain at full pelt, or even through a bulding if required, as long as you can see the enemy unit.
Black Knights may not quite invole the same sense of dread that the blood Knights do, but Blood Knights are frenzied, so can be dragged around a battlefeld by a savvy Brettonian player, using a pegasus unit. They can then be hit by Grail Knights (immune to psychology, and frightfully good).
Remember the Bretonnian charge range is not modified by barding, so its 16" across the board. Only Black Knights can match this, but have the added bonus of not being afefcted by adverse terrain
Oh - forgot to mention - if he's magic light, then take a Vampire with the appropriate sorcerous powers and Lore of Metal - and see his Knights melt!
Most brets I've seen have 4 dice [2 damsels], 4 scrolls, and magic resistance in a lot of their units, best bet is to cast on your own units (invocation, VHD) so that he doesn't get those extra dispel dice from the MR.
Yea it was a fun game (happened today) I tried using ghoulkin and ghouls as screening for the first time ever.. and now for 1v1 im never going back haha lucky me his knights couldn't even break down every model in the units of ghouls I used for screening so from that point on he was pretty scewed. Thank you very much for the tips and the help for the win
