Alright, here's my first WHFB list, I rather like it, it's alot more combined arms then most lists I've seen, which are mostly all-cavalry..... I think it'll actually take tactics to win with :D


Bretonnian Lord - 110
Barded Bretonnian Warhorse - 21
Shield - 3
Virtue of Confidence - 25
Birth-Sword of Carcassonne - 35
Gromril Great Helm - 30
Gauntlet of the Duel - 10
234

Paladin - 60
Barded Bretonnian Warhorse - 14
Virtue of Duty - 30
Battle Standard Bearer with Warbanner - 25
129

Damsel of the Lady - 70
Level 2 Wizard - 35
2 Dispel Scrolls - 40
145

Damsel of the Lady - 70
Level 2 Wizard - 35
Chalice of Malfleur, Dispel Scroll - 40
145

2 Regiments of 23 Men-at-Arms - 230
Spears, Full Command - 54
284

9 Knights Errant - 180
Full Command, Errantry Banner - 41
221

2 Regiments of 8 Knights of the Realm - 384
Full Command - 48
432

6 Knights Errant - 120
Full Command - 21
141

Field Trebuchet
90

Either:

2 Regiments of 14 Peasant Bowmen - 168
Brazier - 10
178

1999

Or:

25 Peasent Bowmen - 150
Skirmish, Braziers - 30
180

2001


Damsels go with the Men-at-Arms, so my opponent can't ignore them, and the Battle Standard Bearer and Lord each go into a unit of Knights of the Realm. It's mostly a bait-and-switch army, probably a bit worse against gunlines then fluffier armies. I mostly stuck the unit of 6 Knights Errant in because I didn't have anything better to stick in, I think they'd be nice for hitting the flanks of weaker enemy units that charge the Men-at-Arms. The Lord rips through enemy commanders and unit champions in a charge, hopefully giving an overkill bonus, or if not, at least keeping the model from hitting the rest of my Knights. I'm thinking of dropping the unit of 6 Knights Errant and one from the unit of 9 for a nice Paladin that could be stuck in with them, though I'm not sure and doubt I'll do it. If I did, the Paladin would most likely have a Lance, Shield, Barded Warhorse, and the Virtue of Knightly Temper.

Looks good but you dont really need your damsels at level 2. Bretonnians are a defensive magic army for the most part and you can use the extra points for more bowmen or other upgrades and I think the 25 man skirmishing bowmen w/brazers is a better choice because u are charging every time and movement is key. Also make ur men-at-arms 25x men strong because with them, u need as many as possible. Hope this helps :)

Ah, forgot to say that the Damsels will use the Lore of Beasts, so I can use the first spell and make the Men-at-Arms a semidecent CC unit, and the reason they're level 2 is so I can use 3 dice on whatever the first spell is(can't remember its name.... _______ beast?), which is nice and makes it a bit harder to dispel, and so I can maybe get a good 2nd spell. Should I get rid of a pair of Bowmen and get another Man-at-Arms in each regiment, so they can be 5x5?

i think you mean the Bear's Anger. love that spell, and because of that Lore of Beasts is my favourite. imagine Bears anger on a vamp. lord, or in your case the brettonian lord

I like your list a lot.
However, you could better get a unit of 3 PK for that cannon that is blowing up your knights. (Maybe dropping the unit of 6 KE, or something?)
I'd choose for the unit of 25 skirmish bowman as they rock.
It's fun to shoot at T3 elves and watch them being decimated to the last number. (Try this at swordmasters:evilgrin:)

Well, I wanted my list to keep a medieval feel, hence the reason I didn't take the Pegasus Knights. However, I suppose I could drop the little unit of Knights Errant and a couple Bowmen for another Man-at-Arms in each regiment and 3 Pegasus Knights.



Alright, just revised the list, here it is, incoming. It seems to have worked out quite well.

Very nice list congratulations, my only comment:

Split the bowmen in 2 units, 1 of skirmishers and 1 of regular bowmen. Also drop the braciers. Finally give barded steeds to the damsels; it adds a decent save (with blessing) and an extra A plus some ranks in case your MaA get to much attention.

Good luck.

I feel that 3 Dispel Scrolls is to many, lose the 1 from the Single Scroll Carrier
Can't you give the Paladin any additional armour or shield?
I feel the Peasant Bowmen should be 1 seperate units of 10
With the Remaining pts, I'd bulk up the Man-at-arms to 30's, or make your Lord mounted on a Pegasus instead

They are 25 pts apiece, unless there's something in the Brettonian rules I don't know.
