Hey Alan,

With Brets I have a small problem at 500 points due their 'must have BSB Paladin' rule.  Then I need some sort general which means another Paladin at least.  This takes me over the 125pts limit.  I then do not have enough basic troops.

Can I forgo the BSB rule at under 500pts?  Therefore just use a basic Paladin as my initial general?  

Kev

Kev, did you read the post about the change of point values, that due to the end times, you can now spend up to 250pts in Lords, Heroes and Special at 500pts? as long as you have three units (not including characters), you can spend more on lords/heroes
ie.

    Paladin w/shield (76pts),
    Paladin BSB (74pts),
    5 Errant Knights (100pts),
    10 Men at Arms (50pts),
    10 Peasant Bowmen (60pts),
    5 Questing Knights (140pts)

Total 500pts!

Yes confirm me please.  Have ordered Breton Battalion box set for xmas.

Would also like to ask how we are doing the initial 500 point game.  How about doing an initial game night of several tables all lined up and each player gets 3 games against a different army.  This is basically what happens at the 500 point combat patrol nights.  

So we could play first game and then everyone take a step to the table on their right and then they would play some different on a different scenery layout.

This way every one gets a quick 3 games against different armies to kick start their campaign and story.

Just a suggestion......

Now we are down to 12 the first months games will be either 3x 4-player or 2x 6-player Triumph and Treachery games with points/gold being the factor that decides who gets which land plot on the map.

The first game will hopefully take place on the 27th January - so this is the deadline for your painted armies and starting fluff. We'll take photos on the night and hopefully (if i can twist Sanj's arm enough) do a battle report for at least one game.

Pm me if the 27th is OK or not. If not we will try a game the week before as well as the second week, but would be ideal if all there for the 27th for post game campaign rolls etc.

Just for some motivation, here's my first unit, fully converted and painted!

Tuesday 27th good for me.  I do not know Triumph and Treachery rules so will have to be lead by you guys.

Should have 500 points painted to basic ability.  

 

Also a question from reading over the rule book:  In the section concerning weapons models only get a parry save with a shield if they are on foot, to their front and armed with a hand weapon.  Does this mean that models armed with say Spear and shield do not get a parry save?
