newb question of the week (day?) what happened to Bretonnia?

Post by Guildenstern » Wed Jan 21, 2015 6:40 pm

I don't mean in the lore, unless that's relevant and someone wants to 'splain it ;) I'm curious because it looks like GW killed them (as a force people play)? I mean, there's like 20 models, so unless they're *really* OP...

been curious about that for a bit, thanks for any insight

Obviously no one knows for certain, but various rumors point to Bretonnia getting rolled into Empire for 9th Edition. At this point there is no solid knowledge, but the main concept is armies get combined into more manageable factions, choices get reduced, and the lines will be "spiced" with special limited-duration releases throughout the product lifespan. Many Bretonnia units haven't been available for over a year now.

There's also rumors of a new army, along the lines of 'Space Marines....not in space'. I've always wanted to start a Bret army (is there an army besides Elves/Lizardmen I haven't wanted to start) and figured I'd go with that. Oh yeah, I heard that they were supposed to be in the new starter set :)

I always wanted to do a Brets army as well. I had planned to use my family coat of arms as the Baron's heraldry. I'd do the men and the Errants in that color, but then the knights and the grails in their own.

Remember though, this is only rumor, so who knows? I will say I think it looks bad for Brets though.

Me thinks so too. They must be holding them off to be a bigger player in the new edition. As for being rolled into Empire, not sure. For the armies that don't have their own end times book, I heard that certain armies are allowed a percentage of allied units to be taken, so for instance an empire force could have 25% of force made of up allies dwarfs and so on.

There's just so many rumours and many of them contradictory, going around that it's hard to tell what's really going on. I don't think they'll be gone though.

If the sisters can still around so can the knights.

ooh space marines not in space that'd be cool. Ah well, I need another army like... well I don't lol I haven't even gotten to fully play with my scurvy Skaven!

Still, I do like the Bretonnian models a lot. Be good for D&D/Pathfinder night as well (yet more minis yay!)
