2 - Same question but with characer on a Griffon?

1) No

2) No

Units of flyers cannot be joined by characters. Characters with flying mounts can never join units.

Note this is overruled in the Lizardman book where a chief on terradon can join a unit of terradons. Because they worked out it was stupid that they couldn.t

nosferatu is right about this. just for confirmation.

If they redo Brets I imagine they will change this, as it is a monumentally stupid rule.

Yes - a lot of the "characters may not join...." type rules make no sense when you have the same "mount" joining the unit, e.g. Pegasi and Cave Squigs. It doesn't make them overpowered that I can tell, and has no other basis that I can see.

However the entire 7th ed O&G book doesnt really make sense....

Actually having a Lord on a flying monstrous mount joining a unit of Skirmishers and gaining 360 degree line of sight and gaining look out sir would be vastly overpowering!

A peg lord in a unit of peg - I don't see that as vastly overpowering. Notice I said same mount as the unit - so no Griffon in a unit of Peg.

Good luck this weekend EvC, Gazzors daemons are on top cheese form....

Ah, but the Bretonnian characters do not ride the same mount; instead of an ordinary Pegasi, they ride one of the select few Royal Pegasi as a symbol of their status.

To really show off their special status, they tend to fly around on their own so that their special Royal Pegasi will be more visible to the admiring gazes of the rest of the Bretonnians.

Especially fun when they do so past the innocent looking small lizards with strange "blowpipes" in their mouths...

Well you'd really have to experience it to determine if it's overpowering... and if it was allowed, then the RAF would truly be back in business!

Only 10 Flamers and 5 Flesh Hounds though...

I'd quite like to see them back - it would give brets a nice boost as they struggle against so many armies now.

well, it is only 2K points :D Expecting some nice DE cheese to counter it!
