Description

Like their kin within the lands of the Empire, they displaced both the greenskins and human earth-worshippers, thus soon becoming the dominant culture west of the grey mountains. Duke Folgar told the knights that an army of beastmen and undead warriors would march upon the city within a matter of hours, and so the knights took to the city's defences and stood resolute. In the heat of battle, the Fay Enchantress appeared from the shadows and lent her aid towards the Knights, with the very trees of the forest rising up to meet the Greenskin invaders. As Lord Agilgar and Martrud watched over the body of Gilles, the Lady of the Lake appeared before them and healed Gilles of his injuries. As the crusaders sailed with the aid of Estalian ports and Tilean warships, Jaffar and his men prepared for the coming invasion by fortifying most of the major sea-ports.

He decided to forge an alliance with the Wood Elves, sending one of his most esteemed Questing Knights, Gaston de Galliard to brave the dangers of the forest. Anyone travelling through Bretonnia, outside the blighted land of Mousillon, sees a country that looks fair and prosperous. With their purpose achieved, they fought their way back to the surface covered with the black blood of their enemies.These unseasoned knights throw themselves into the thick of battle, often fighting recklessly, trying their best to outdo their comrades and gain the attention of their superiors. The meeting place was the small town of Ravola, the first settlement on the Tilean side of the mountains and one which was coveted by the Bretonnians because of its fine vineyards, even though all the people were fiercely loyal to the Prince of Miragliano. However, the lords of each dukedom had not the time to properly gather their knights into a single unified force. We’ve revealed one on foot, one on horse, and completing the trio is a Battle Standard Bearer on Pegasus.

Furthermore, any large army passing in the vicinity of Skavenblight was certain to be decimated by plague. That morning, when all hope seemed lost for the Bretonni cause, a true miracle unfolded upon Gilles and his army of knights. 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. At roughly the same time, the undead armies of Settra the Imperishable and his fleet of rotting warships and skeletal warriors appeared upon the western coast of Bretonnia.During this dark time, not all Knights roaming the lands of Bretonnia followed the sacred codes of chivalry and honour. The Bretonnian calendar is offset from the Sigmarian Empire's by about 977 years, as the people of the Bretonni weren't fully united until King Gilles' reign as the first Bretonnian monarch. Pigs forage in the leaf litter, trees are felled for building, and others are coppiced or pollarded. However, the question of whether he should also be proclaimed King of Bretonnia, as old tribal tradition allowed, was much debated.

Many shepherds carry the Bretonnian crook, a spear with a hook at the end of the handle, and are skilled in its use. In fact, many traders preferred to move their activities to the Bretonnian hinterland thus avoiding the taxation of the Estalian kingdom. These brave warriors form a bulwark against the growing evils of Chaos and the power of the Orcs, Goblins, Skaven and other monstrous creatures that threaten mankind's survival. Charlen responded instantly to their appeal for aid, declaring his intention to rid the Old World of the greenskin menace once and for all.

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. Joining forces with Duke Beren d'Gisoreux, Gilles faced a horde containing many of the orcs' deadliest shamans, who turned their foul magic upon the Bretonni. The knights of Bretonnia are trained to fight from childhood, and even the lowliest Knights Errant are considered superior to ordinary warriors.

Such was the overbearing pride and arrogance of the Bretonnians that one of them, the Baron du Bors, declared that the Bretonnians were better knights than the Tileans and so the Tileans should just hand over Ravola and be done with it!These original vows of chivalric knighthood still exist within the halls of Bastonne, upon a crumbling parchment, decorated with an elaborate script, detailing all the duties and privileges of a knight, and those of all other ranks within noble society. Faced with the might of all of Bretonnia, Merovech was finally slain, though many brave warriors fell beneath his blade. Grail Chapels were built in places of holy significance, and the Fay Enchantress guided the Dukes of Bretonnia in their worship of the Lady. Just when all hope seemed lost and the army was almost at the breaking point, a host of both Empire and Bretonnian knights charged furiously at the tightly packed army, mowing down the lightly armoured soldiers until finally the armies were scattered by the sudden death of Jaffar by a Bretonnian lance.
