I'm still very new to the tabletop gaming scene. I've always been drawn to warhammer fantasy, but my bf insisted I start a 40k army with him lol! I just have a quick question (sorry if it's been asked or is stupid- I ran a search to no avail)...
Is it possible to have a fully mounted army? I mean without being horribly weakened or anything. I saw a 40k orc army ALL on bikes on ebay. It was so cool! But being the girly girl that I am, I'd love to have a large army of guys on horseback. I'm thinking either Empire or Bretonnia. Any ideas?
Now to get back to painting iron warriors before he catches me "cheating" :ninja:
Greetings and Welcome to LO and the WHFB Boards!
To answer your question, the army you are looking for is Bretonnia. We (speaking as a Bret player) are the premiere mounted army in Fantasy. We have a special formation that maximizes the effectiveness of our knights and our hitting power on the charge. We also boast 5 different kinds of knights . To top it all off, Bretonnia is an amazing army to start Warhammer with IMO (they were what drew me into Fantasy). They have a great armor save and are fairly forgiving for a Fantasy army.
If you have any more questions about Bretonnia in gerenal, feel free to post in the Bretonnia sub-forum. Or feel free to drop me a PM if there is any questions I can answer/help you with.
Almost any amry that has cavalry can be used as all cavalry. Choas would be particularly mean in all cav, a guy I know plays it and wins EVERY damn game. Of course Bretonia are the usual all cav army there not nessisarily the best. Another guy I know plays a mostly cav vampire counts army and is suposedly the best vampire in all of Canada ! (by nemisis crown standings)
I play Bretonnia and I like it so far
And of course another cavalery army is high elves, lots of silver helms, chariots, mages and some skirmishers... very cool
A Tau Ethereal was thought to have been killed today by a Bloodthirster. However, many Tau were seen fleeing the scene and are considered suspects.
you can make an all-cav O&G army too :p
Nah, stick with the Brets, if youre going to do an all Cav army, might as well use the best available. And ofcourse someone has already helped you with a great list for them :yes:
Theres all knights empire, but they don't stand out like the HE or Brets, unless you mix it with lots of cannons and sigmarite warrior priests with an archlector riding a war alter. But this is greatly frowned upon.
1 word for you...

You want all calvary try skaven or dwarves , just kidding
Seriosly Brettonia are your best bet though if you can try a few games using proxies or somthing as they have the tendency to get boring to use, i know i did.
BEN DIESEL FTW!!!
Brets are the archetypal all mounted army, but High elves deserve a mention, They have some of the fastest cavalry in the game, and are getting a new book and some very nice new models next month
