Lacy's thoughts on Bretonnia

Lacy's Chapter 2 1000 point Bretonnian list of sweetness and light

So, I began building my Bretonnian list for the campaign with a little help from my boyfriend and a lot of excitement. This army reminds me a lot of Monty Python, and of the romanticized picture of the medieval ages. So I enjoy it.
 
I saw the Pegasus model and really wanted to field one. My Paladin will mostly just fly around and look super cool.Oh, and do serious damage to the enemy. That too.

My Damsel will cast spells supporting my knight units. She's awesome because she makes my army even harder to defeat.

My Bowmen are there to support my knights and wreak havoc on the the enemy before the devastating charge.

My knights are there to just kill everyone and everything in a glorious charge.

My Trebuchets will drop big rocks on my opponent's head. Epic.

  1. I have to say a 5+ regen save on knights with a 2+ armor save is really adding insult to injury .

  2. Pegasus rider=death to flank/rear

  3. 2 things:

    Never post point values. Just sum them up and post the total at the end (it's a GW copyright thing).

    Trebuchets: 180 points will put you over the max 15% (150 points) for rare-choices. IMO just bring 1 and put the rest of the points into pegasus knights since you have no special choices and your pegasus paladin will get destroyed by magic/shooting if you don't stick him in a unit.

    Other than that, solid list.

  4. Unfortunately flying characters can't join flying units so your pegasus rider will be going solo no matter what. However, there is no shortage of good warhead to help him shrug off missile fire, and the Blessing of the Lady is great on top of that. You might also consider a weapon that us equally effective in drawn-out combats. Brets are in trouble if their initial charge doesn't break the enemy, so having a hero who can slug it out for several turns without relying on a lance is great. Last, Brets have to have a battle standard bearer; their army isn't legal without one, and you need a general too. Unless the campaign waives that rule, you might need to shuffle points a bit to fit both. Thankfully, BSBs are great to have!
