Dwarfs.
Not a horsey in sight and is quite the change from the fast and aggressive Brets.

Excellent mid-range shooting even tho BS3 but they hurt when they hit especially the war-machines(and with the rune system you can negate much of these drawbacks).
Melee they are very strong especially when you look into the more elite troops like the longbeards.
But the dwarfs can be summed up to slow and defensive which is the direct opposite of bretonnians fast and aggressive. With Brets you need to get the charge, with dwarfs however it's nice when you get the charge but you don't need it, you will no doubt win the fight anyway.
But do note that you will have no magic phase unless you take the anvil which IMO is still up to debate wether or not it's worth it. Other then that, you are mostly anti-magic which is fun in it's own way.

Chaos daemons. Lots of variety.

i would have thought deamons to be hard to play to get bk into fantasy beacause of the variety.

Had my first game in 3 years with daemons, had such a good game and they performed well.

Seconded on Dwarves or Skaven, with a personal preference towards Skaven.
Bretonnia is all knights and chivalry and honour, Skaven is all infantry, backstabbing and lying. It's an army that focuses on hurling destruction at your enemy and cowering behind your lines instead of meeting them on the field and charging bravely forth.

If you want something different, can't get much more different than Skaven.
