New Bretonnia 9th Ed update out now!

This contains the same changes as the 8th ed update. Let me know of any transission bugs that might have occured due to having to remake it from the 8th ed version rather than just updating the current 9th ed version.

Also uploaded a new version of the 8th ed book with some minor changes based on feedback from the last update.

  2. This is not related to Bretonnians, but to Dwarves: given that you're working some AoS models into the Old World setting and given that GW will likely discontinue Dwarf models, can you consider replacing the gyrocopter and gyrobomber with equivalent airships? Looking back to Oldhammer airships were the thing before some GW "genius" got it into their head to start steampunking things. I wouldn't recommend them being aethyr ships (or whatever they're called) and some cool conversion work might be in order, but I think they would fit well.

    1. No need to worry, there's is already a Thunderbarge in the the Dwarfs' Ravening Hordes list ;)

  3. Question about Louen - is he 375 points including Beaquis, or 375 on foot? And why does he have the Lance Formation as a special rule if he can't join units?

    1. That's 375 on foot, he can join units if he's mounted on a warhorse.

  5. Do peasant levies still have the "disorganized mob" rule in 9ed? It appears in the Army List but not in their description.

    1. No, they do not have it in 9th ed. Will fix that.

      The Green Knight was streamlined a bit. Is this something you wish to see included again?

    2. Yeah, I think the Green Knight is a pretty unique character, and his mobility around the map made him very fun to play. He also wouldn't be competitive without it, especially now with Spirits of the Fay - he can't be the general but he takes up a lord slot, in sub 2k games this essentially forces you to take a paladin as the general. I think he needs to keep his mobility both for flavor and for competitiveness. Thanks!

  6. Also, the Green Knight can no longer teleport around the map - that's a pretty big nerf. What was the thought behind that?

  7. Just noticed - the Relic Sword in your BRB does the same as the Sword of the Lady's Champion in your Bretonnia book, but it's half the price and doesn't require Grail Vow. Not sure what to do about that but wanted to point it out.

    1. Another thing - Royal Hippogryphs are not given the barding option in the Bretonnia book, but Royal Pegasus, Hippogryph Knights, and Beaquis - Louen's royal hippogryph - can all take barding. Was it intentional not to give barding to Royal Hippogryphs?

    2. I will need to look into that, they should at least be on par with each other.

      The reason Bequis had was because of it's model really, but I don't have any issues giving it to the normal hippogryphs either.

  8. Hi, I'm loving these books BTW.

    Question regarding Truffle hounds.

    Is the idea to stop a unit charging the peasants like a Fanatic, like a counter charge?
    Or simply hit the charging unit and then die for free hits?

    1. It can be used for both really, depending on what you face. Against fast cavalry, they can deter charges, whereas they can remove a rank bonus from a bigger unit of infantry for instance.
