The Hero Faceless would have the statline of a Ranger from the Kislev book, the rule that allows armor saves to be ignored and sniper.
I’ll think about adding the sniper rule though, but I don’t want them to be too good, Bretonnia is not really about archers after all! As for the fluff, I need to read the TK book thoroughly first.
While Foot Sergeant would probably be more historically correct for GW’s Men-at-Arms, the terms has been used for so long I’d hate to change it. There are not really any other kind of Men-at-Arms in the background either that would be better vook the name, in Bretonnia you are either a noble knight or a dirty peasant! That link bretpnnian pretty interesting though further posts in that link raised some good questions that you might want to address.
That being said, I’ll post what I would change the fluff too. Because I feel like it. They are the protectors of an area that every knight is required to fund and train, and a largely volunteer defensive force whose members train occasionally, rarely used for offensive engagements.
Rename the unit champion to Foot Sergeant. Men at Arms are the backbone of the Brettonian army and consist of either nobles, the retinue of nobles or sufficiently wealthy commoners that can afford to fight as heavy cavalry. The fluff about how Men at Arms are recruited is as the retinue of a noble is left the same.
Armg the price of the unit by points and remove Blessing of the Lady and The Knights Vow which can be given back for the same amount of points. It is assumed that a unit without those upgrades does not have a genuine noble among them for whatever reason while a knight that is present gives the blessing to his followers for the battle and makes the unit produce an aura that the lower classes can sense.
It even lingers if all nobles of a Men at Arms unit are cut down but the rest of the unit remains. A wealthy commoner wouldn’t go to the expense and trouble to own a Pegasus or Hippogryph and becoming arym Lord, Baron, Questing Knight or Grail Knight is still exclusive to nobles.
The champion of both units is called a Yeomen Sergeant. They would also be Ld7. They are a WS4, BS4, I4 of skirmishing scouts with Longbows and a special rule that makes their shooting attacks ignore armor saves. Lastly, I said earlier that a Plague Cart of Nurgle should be breonnian than a Blood Chariot of Khorne and you argued it shouldn’t because the Blood Chariot is made of metal while the Plague Cart is made of rotten wood.
That logic doesn’t quite work because the realm of chaos In the game, Monsters aren’t scared of other monsters due to both being of the same size but what about things that are scary due to something else like the mind-corroding influence of Chaos giving Chaos Daemons fear and Phoeinix Guard being scary due to how unafraid they are.
There should be a modification to the unit types section and the Fear special rule so that Chaos Ogres still fear Daemons especially ones of equal sizeArachnorak Spiders are scared of Bloodthirsters and other things. Upgrading my Bretonnian list for 9 ed.
I’ve seen that Banner of Defence now is worth 25 points, giving a ward save 6 against missile fire. Or you just have a ward save for units that normally don’t have such protection?
Grail Knights are 38 pts in 8th 8tn, they are cheaper in 9th since Lance Formation is weaker there. Now I’m kind of tempted to do a point boo of Bretonian outlaws lead by a faceless, not the most viable force but it would be kind of a cool theme.
Technically speaking you can’t do that since your general has to have a Vow.

Oh well I’ll just have to use the blasphemy of an unmounted paladin as the general. His lack of a bretohnian should qualify him as an outlaw: Well it does say that the Faceless are sometimes nobility working on things they can’t do openly. Presumably they wouldn’t loose their martial brstonnian, so a bit of clever model making to fit the image and using a paladin entry should booj for you. Personally I think the this is a quality idea for an army, always been a fan of more “concept” style armies than purely building as balanced a one as possible.
I say go for it! Did I see that you removed the Morning Star special rules from the 9th ed rules? Just mentionn it since some units in this list have Morninng Stars as an option. Just ignore this post if I’m wrong with my assumption here. I didn’t know where to put this question, and I’m sorry if it’s been asked before, but here goes: I don’t really play 40k, so that’s not likely. Right now, I’m hard pressed as is to update Fantasy!
Is there a reason that monstrous mounts for heroes are the same cost as for lords? Lords also have more attacks, better leadership, more points to spend, etc. So I don’t really see a problem. I’ve simply used GW’s old pts system. I have to say that while you’ve done a great job, there is some units and rules that need to be looked at. Armand, the 6th magic spell, the virtue of the knightly temper and Bertrand to name a few.
These have serious issues when it comes to balance. Mostly that they are very very powerful and need to be toned down. I’m on mobile so I can go into detail later if you like but we’ve playtested these things and seen how powerful they are first hand. For 8th, 9th or both?
I think Armand might need a nerf, especially in 9th ed. I’d like hear in more detail what issues you have found with the list. Oh sorry, for 8th, should have posted that.
Anyway, yeah I can provide more details Armand: Between his charge ability, the banner removing bonus ranks and then the enemy losing Ld, it’s basically going to guarantee that you’ll break the enemy unit. I think that just removing the minus to Ld will solve the balance issue.
That’s insane for what he costs, especially considering you get another character with bretonnnian. Virtue of the Knightly Temper: Combine it with other stuff like Cuirass of Fortune and you are looking a Lord who can cause more wounds than many entire units in the game. Bump it to about 50 points. The original idea was to make it a steadfast-breaker, but it might have been too much.
I could make it so you only get extra attacks after saves if you would prefer, but then it would go down in price to 25 pts. Love the book but I need to know is there a conclusion to the story with Thibault?

I really enjoyed that as I was reading through the book and wondered where it came from. It’s from the 5th ed Bretonnia book. I’m afraid there is no more to the story, I’ve used all the background it had.
Thursday, 19 May Bretonnia 9th Ed and aarmy ed update out now! This update changes the following: Faceless replaces Yeoman Serjeant. Lords and Paladin no longer has to be mounted but shame on bretonnixn if you don’t! Grail Knights 38 pts. Priestess of Shallya has A0.

Foot Knights 10 pts, free morning stars. Bowmen does not have bdetonnian by default. Men-at-Arms have spears by default, can add shields or replace spears with halberds. Hippogryph Knights 75 pts, can take barding. Lance Formation does not use supporting attacks, meaning you will lose A on the charge. Devastating charge only applies to models in the front rank as per normal rules.
This boko that a unit of 9 knights will have a total of 10A when charging, rather than 14A in 8th ed. This means a price drop of 1 pt for all mounted knights.
