Warhammer Armies: Bretonnia (5th Edition) Armies: Bretonnia Warhammer Armies: Bretonnia is the current army book for the Bretonnians in. This section will cover the new units included in Armybook, not those from 6th Edition. Crusader Templars Those. So after toiling away for nearly the entire day (almost 12 hours straight, back says ouch!), I've finally finished the Bretonnia book, my longest to.

However, the war had so weakened the High Elves by this time that the next Phoenix King, Caradryel , ordered a withdrawal of all elves back to Ulthuan, leaving those colonies that stayed behind to fend for themselves. Circa fifteen hundred years before the time of Sigmar, an agricultural tribe of people arrived on the western edge of Axe Bite Pass. These primitive tribes had little knowledge of metalwork or warfare, and relied heavily on agriculture and flint-crafted weapons to survive in the harsh wilderness.

These stone circles were places of great natural power, and were marked with symbols that remain as a foundation of the druidic Old Faith to this day. These new human tribes were warlike, strong and and fierce, and they fought both greenskin and indigenous human populations alike.

While most of these tribes settled within and eventually became the Empire, one far-ranging tribe crossed the Grey Mountains.

~ Blog about Bretonnia

This tribe, called the Bretonni , was to give its name to the land they found. When Sigmar founded the Empire , he extended an invitation unto all the Bretonni warlords to join him in his new confederation. Despite noble Sigmar's goal of pan-human unity, the cultural differences between the Bretonni and his people were apparently too large to overcome, thus his offer was quickly rebuffed, unable to accept a foreigner as their leader.

While the Empire experienced many growing pains throughout the first millennium of its existence, the Bretonni would remain, as a whole, a fractured people. It would be foolish to say that they did not advance though. Among the tribes of the Bretonni it became the custom for the best and bravest young man in the village to be armed and ready at all times to fight off foes.

Everyone else in the village toiled to provide for themselves, but also to feed and equip the warrior and his warhorse. The warrior lived off the fat of the land, ate the best meat and drank the best wine. This, together with constant training and practice at arms, set him apart from ordinary men.

He was physically bigger, fitter, and more robust, standing head and shoulders above an ordinary peasant. In return for all this, the warrior was honourbound to defend the village against any foe, no matter how terrible.

If necessary he would take on even a horde of marauding orcs alone. These warriors became known as "knights", and as the centuries passed both knight and warhorse became exceptional examples of their kind.

Although knights were known among other human tribes of the Old World as well, it was among the Bretonni tribe that the tradition of knighthood was perfected. By the year IC, the lands of all Bretonnia had since been divided into sixteen realms, each ruled by their own duke.

By the year of IC, a massive horde of orcs, led by the warlord Gragabad , poured out of the mountains of Massif Orcal and overran the lands of Cuileux.

Faced with imminent destruction, the last of the remaining knights of Cuileux rode out in a last, desperate battle, and fought the greenskins on the open plains.

Though the greenskins fell like wheat before the scythe, the last of the knights of Cuileux were killed to a man. No sooner had the orcs began to route from the battlefield than the two Bretonnian armies faced each other for rulership over the charred-husk that was Cuileux. Fortunately, the two armies hadn't the stomach to face each other in open combat, and instead, the two dukes of each kingdom fought one another in a honourable duel. By duel's end, the Lord of Brionne was struck down, and Quenelles was expanded.

It is said that the destruction of Cuileux marked the beginning of the wars that would culminate in the unification of the entire Kingdom. In the battle, Gragabad's great axe became lodged fast in Balduin's shield, and the lord fought the entire battle with the axe in place.

Afterwards, the axe was adopted as the symbol of Brionne in memory of this event. This victory did not the stop the orcs, however, and around IC, the northern lands of Bretonnia were engulfed by waves of enemy armies. Northern raiders from the frigid shores of Norsca burned the coastlines of Lyonesse and Couronne , while beastmen warherds poured forth in implacable numbers from the dark woodlands of Arden.

Beset by three enemy invasions, the Bretonni of the northern lands were forced to relinquish all they once ruled, hiding behind their stout walls while the enemy roamed across their lands at will.

No sooner had the orc and goblin armies rampaged through the realms than the undead hordes swept across the lands and completed the desolation with silent impunity. To the south and east, restless goblin tribes came down from their homes within the Grey Mountains , pillaging and burning their way through the dukedoms of Quenelles and Bastonne.

By IC, orc tribes poured from the mountains and forests in numbers never before seen in Bretonnia's history.

Cut off from aid, the once ancient dukedom of Glanborielle was utterly destroyed. In response, the Bretonnian knights rose up against the onslaught of the greenskins, charging headlong towards the many battlefields that were springing up all across their realms.

However, the lords of each dukedom had not the time to properly gather their knights into a single unified force.

Outnumbered and surrounded, these scattered bands of knights were soon overwhelmed by the superior numbers of the greenskin hordes. With the enemies of mankind amassing all around them, the remaining dukes had all but lost hope.

This ancient and legendary uniter was Duke Gilles le Breton, the newly crowned Duke of Bastonne, the famous knight who personally slew the red wyrm Smearghus, deep within the forest of Chalons. Upon the morrow, they felt certain to face their doom upon the field of battle, with the war drums of the orc Waaagh! That morning, when all hope seemed lost for the Bretonni cause, a true miracle unfolded upon Gilles and his army of knights. As Gilles knelt before the lakeside to drink of its pure waters and pray for strength, an ethereal and heavenly beautiful woman arose from out of the mists, leaving the Bretonni army agasp and afraid.

Gilles was the first to make a move, raising the bloodstained and tattered banner of Bastone high, inspired by some genius or desperate madness, he cried out: "Lady, wouldst thou bless mine banner! He then dipped it into the lake at the Lady's feet.

When he drew it forth and raised it high again so all could see, it was dry and fully restored, only now also emblazoned with the glowing icon of a golden grail. The other dukes and knights then scrambled to follow his example, asking the Lady to bless their sword, lance, or warhorse for the coming battle.

Finally, the lady held forth a large gilded chalice overflowing with light, giving it first to Gilles and then to his companions to drink from and gain the strength needed to achieve victory. These three became the first Grail Knights , and, fighting under the banner of the Lady of the Lake, the Bretonni gained the courage needed to face the greenskins upon the plains. The knights hurriedly took up their weapons and mounted their warhorses.

They gathered in a battle line around Gilles and the banner. The orc horde darkened the horizon ahead of the Bretonnian knights.

Steadily and without flinching, they rode on as the arrows dropped around them. Then the moment came to charge and the knights plunged into the midst of the orc horde. The first ranks of the enemy crumbled before them. The entire horde reeled like some great beast pierced by the hunter's lance.

The knights cleaved through wave after wave of the enemy and burst forth into the open plain beyond. All around them the enemy began to scatter in flight.

As the sun began to set the knights ceased their pursuit and rode back to the Sacred Lake. All the dukes and knights gathered around Gilles and together they vowed to serve and honour the Lady of the Lake. They also vowed to stay together as an army and free Bretonnia from orcs and all her other foes.

Gilles was proclaimed 'Leader of Battles', with the authority to command the army and the entire resources of all the dukedoms until Bretonnia was freed.

This moment marked the origin of the Grail Knights and also the Kingdom of Bretonnia. In the years that followed, under the banner of the Lady of the Lake, Gilles led the Grail Knights from victory to victory throughout the length and breadth of Bretonnia. The morning after his encounter with the Lady of the Lake and his first grand victory over the greenskins, Duke Gilles of Bastonne led his army against the orcs besieging the Dukedom of Bordeleaux.

The three Grail Companions did as much slaughter as the rest of their army combined, and the greenskin hordes were driven into the ocean. Seeing a means to retake their lands from the greenskins, Lord Marcus d'Bordeleaux and Lord Fredemund d'Aquitaine eagerly joined Gilles and his ever-growing army of knights. After the victory feast, the Lady of the Lake appeared in the private chamber where the Lords were gathered, where she bestowed Marcus and Fredemund the Holy Grail and thus become the fourth and fifth Grail Companions.

Marcus turned that chamber within his castle into the first Grail Chapel , a site still of unparalleled sanctity today. Lord Fredemund summoned a great flock of falcons, which struck the flying beasts of the orc's armies from the sky. With the flying beast slain, the Grail Companions sounded the charge and fought their way deep into the heart of the enemy army, where Lord Landuin struck the warlord down with his own sword.

With victory achieved, the Companions hurried their armies towards the besieged capital of Brionne.

The knights drove through the unsuspecting besiegers from the rear, shattering their resolve and breaking the siege. Lord Balduin d'Brionne sallied forth with his knights and met Gilles in the midst of the orcish army.

As they clasped forearms as brothers, the Lady of the Lake appeared and gave Balduin a drink from the Holy Grail, thus becoming the sixth Grail Companion. Likewise, I'd rather see them be used with pole-arms instead of bunkering up with swords and shields, you have foot knights for that purpose. Crossbows haven't been apart of the Bretonnian list since 3rd ed - crossbows themselves were practically known as "knight killers" so issuing those kind of weapons along with pikes!

I take your point on crossbows - the knights wouldn't want the riff-raff to be too well armed. So maybe: You could still use the old models, they just follow the same rules.

I don't really want the M A to be equivalent of Empire State Troopers in that they come with a ton of weapon options, but rather have them with a fixed given role. I very well appreciate your work here sir! Thank your for your time and effort. I am trying to find a new armies and everything I have found is leading me to bretonnia! And i was sad since the 8th edition book hadn't come out for them. I'll be needing all the help i can get since I'm going up against dark elves, Warriors of the Chaos wastes, and high elves.

Heres hoping they will let me use this book!!! Hello, I tried to download this on scribe but the site said it was removed and the other site wouldn't let me download it either. So I was hoping you could send the PDF directly or perhaps some other way.

Thanks for your time. Hi, you can download the book on this website under the "army books" tab in the upper left corner.

I know the old models had either spears or halberds, but the new ones have pole-arms, which is what I based the list on.
