2500 points vs Bretonnia [8th ed.] - Friendly match
« on: February 04, 2018, 06:19:25 PM »
Hello, everyone!
I'm working on a Middenheim Regular Army (so black powder will be not forbidden) to bring battle to the Bretonnians: my first goal is to have fun, but I won't despise a good and bloody victory!

The lack of ranged units, besides the archers, doesn't scare me too much, but the addition of 5 outriders (125pts, with his pegasi as their main target) may be possible if we decide to play 2600 points: it depends on my fellow gamer!

One of my doubts concerns the magic lore of my Wizard Lord: I discarded Metal because I would like to play a more defensive battle with my infantry, so Life would make them more resilient while Light would give them advantage with speed and high WS (precisely with Speed of Light or Pha's Protection).

In summary, the infantry shall receive the main charges (Knights of the Realm and maybe Grail), my Knights would move out to charge his flanks or smash in the rearguard (Trebuchet and archers) while the Steam Tank will try to weaken his pegasi or Errant.

I'll be happy to read some suggestions!

Thanks in advance!
