Bretonnia is the only army I've ever collected that can be considered in the "good guys" box. There will be Eldar in some time but I don't really consider them good but more on the "I don't give a shit, I do what I want" style like Honey badgers.
So why Bretonnians?
- Well because they have plenty of knightys and we all agree that Knights are cool,
- because they have hot chicks and that can be considered cool too
- because they rely a lot on medieval France and though I'm no nationalist, I kinda like the idea to relate them to real places.
- last but not least, I had had an idea of doing a "holy grail" themed army for a time.
As I said, Bretonnia is strongly linked to France and most of its name come from real french places.
It's with this idea in mind I began my army.
Since I come from a great region called "Bresse"
I decided I would have this region as a start for my army. With a bit of imagination you could place my region in the vicinity of Quenelles :
|Quenelles are a delicious specialty - They feel so right in my mouth gaaawd|
But let's get to point, I mean minis !
Just like I do as usual, I always pick up a Champion or a hero to get the feeling I want for my army.
But just before that I had to choose a device for my army and I obviously chose that of my region : Bresse to fit the purpose:
And there came this guy :
I guess you can all feel the good "holy grail" vibe from him...
I had the idea to do the whole army like this and then a whole unit and then I realised I would go lacking different minis to do it easily and I just decided this guy would be a champion.
Since no Brettonian army can exist without a hero and a great banner bearer I made these :
The standard bearer is supposed to have the armory from Normandy (where my wife comes from) and I did from the memory I had of it.
EPIC FAIL, .... BIG TIME
The lions on the shield are facing THE OTHER WAY MORON.
Like in here :
Too bad for me, guess I'll just have to hide this one from all my friends in Normandy and to all of my step family...
