Angels in Bretonnia

Subr1185Subr1185 Posts: 13Registered Users
Since we have demons in the game, it would be pretty awesome if a faction like Bretonnia can have a unit like the angels. They already have Paladins, priests, knights and all that Christian stuff, so angels would fit quite nicely in their roster. I know they are not in the lore, but there is no need to follow lore to the letter. What do you guys think?

    Keep Grombrindal in KaK, K8P should be 10 slots, Dogs of War should be a horde, DoC should be one race- Change my mind

    You're doing it wrong, it's Estalia that should have the angels. ;)

    The only angels in Warhammer came from Imperial Engineers and they were mechanical.

    Edit: Even then actual Angels would be the work of Slannesh and that a Daemon of Slannesh has Angel like wings.

    It's not about following lore to the letter, it would be a hard turn away from the lore. Because all the gods that actually help humanity works directly through humanity. There is no great savors to come down and save you from the daemonic hordes. You have nothing but faith and your own steel.

    So I say emphatically, no.

    If you actually wanted to give Bretonnia more fantastical units that'd be fine, but there are plenty of far better and more setting-appropriate choices for it than angels.

    Every wrong is recorded! Every slight against us! Page after Page, etched in blood! Clan Gunnison! Karak Eight-Peaks! Josef Bugman!

    Yes! to Boris Todbringer as playable, subfaction leading Legendary Lord with Starting Position Middenheim instead for the Empire! NO to the lazy way of moving Gelt and Volkmar who both belong to Reikland!

    Where is Boris Todbringer? Have you seen him?

    Daemons are angels.

    To me, at least.

    I demand that Sigvald be given wings so that we can have an angel. :wink:

    Pegasus Knights are angels to mere peasants ! Pray tell, have you paid your tenthshare this season serf?!

    They already have the Green Knight. He's basically the Bretonnia Archangel. The lost sons could be added as a summoned unit for the Fay Enchantress like how Cylostra summons damned knights.

    That being said, there is one character I would be OK with being made into an angel. Repanse de Lyonesse could be brought back as an ethereal/angel LH. She could just look like her TT model or CA could give her wings, then she would somewhat resemble the 40K living saints but with medieval Bretonnian armour. But to have anyone other than Repanse, let alone units of angels flying around would just break the feel of Bretonnia. This isn't AoS.

    All of them ugly, apparently.

    I could care less for lore, since GW destroyed the world anyway. but i must say even angels are a bit much.

    I would love to see Foot Knights thought....

    Christian stuff? They prey to a disguised Elf goddess which doesn't employ angels.

    Also, hi Equix!

    You're thinking more about the HoMM serie. It is a warhammer trope that there are few supernatural "good" entities, and the only actual gods doing stuff are the chaos ones (the roles of all others is debatable and maybe more aking to belief given substance )

    Bretonnia in particular, is a faction exemplar in having normal troops given supernatural abilities. Chaos warriors could be the same if they weren't accompagned by many monsters. (I feel chaos factions in general have a bit of a sprawling roster problem but that's something different)

    There is no harm in adding Bretonnian angels. As long as we get Nurgle jesters, theatrical plaguebearers and maybe mutant seals.

    There was even a Mordheim warband called The Carnival of Chaos, which was basically a Nurgle themed carnival troupe.

    That's what @Infinite_Maw was referring to originally. He's got a link to his Carnival of Chaos thread in his signature. Check it out, it's fairly dope.

    The Slaneeshi thing is true, at least in the context that the OP wanted. The warp isn't hell, it's raw emotion made manifest. The Daemons perceived represent various aspects of reality at their most extreme.
