What do you expect here?

As the title suggests, I am going to post pictures of my Bretonnian miniature collection which is going to be actually every single one that Games Workshop / Citadel has ever released. It now follows a brief introduction as it also can be found on my own website.

How I came to collect Bretonnians?

Through a friend I met in 1994 Warhammer Fantasy. At that time was just the 4th Edition to date. Such a game (tabletop) I didn't know by then, but I was very interested in fantasy and had some experience with RPGs. I was immediately excited about it and got the 4th edition boxed set. The miniatures contained (High Elves and Goblins) didn't please me at all. My interest was from the beginning especially one: knights!

Thus I came to build my army of the Empire, because there were some nice knight models (Reiks Guard, Knights of the White Wolf, Knights Panther) and gave me the background otherwise mostly liked (there was already an army book available). It just bothered me that there were so many gunpowder-based war machines which in my opinion did not fit for knights. But you don't have to use them if you don't like (I've only used a great cannon sometimes). So I played quite successfully for about two years with my Empire army, until the 5th Edition was released and thus changed everything: suddenly the Bretonnians as we know them today appeared on stage and I was highly enthusiastic!

The background of the Bretonnians was exactly what I was looking for. And the best part: It's all about knights! The fact that the Bretonnians had not a single war machine didn't bother me in the slightest, quite the opposite. For me, it was immediately clear: In the future I would only play Bretonnians. So I started to build my Bretonnian army. I was extremely successful with Bretonnians as the army book of the 5th edition was admittedly very strong.

That went up to the appearance of the 6th Edition, with which the game was turned around completely, which did not please me. Above all, there was initially no valid army book for the Bretonnians and the list from the booklet "Ravening Hordes" was anything but edifying. Since most of my friends had already lost interest in Warhammer, other private interests came to the fore and I laid the game temporarily back on the shelf.

It was not until 2007, when already the 7th Edition was current, I took my army once again emerged from obscurity. In no time the interest came back and I tried as soon as possible to make up for missed connections. All my Bretonnian miniatures dated from the 5th edition, but the new miniatures from the 6th Edition I really liked. Since then I started collecting Bretonnians and now I own all the Bretonnian miniatures that were released since 5th edition. Even the oldest Bretonnian models that appeared in 3rd edition I own almost all (Note: During the 4th edition (ie 1992-1996) no Bretonnian models were released). Before the 3rd edition there were no models explicitly labeled as Bretonnians, but only miniatures representing Humans (Fighter) which could be used more or less for Empire, Bretonnian or Dogs of War armies.

Since the whole collection has been getting bigger and bigger, I had the idea to launch a Bretonnian miniature archive as it didn't exist in this form. The link to my web site you will find in my signature.

I'm starting with the Bretonnian models of the 6th edition, which appeared in 2004 and currently represent the most recent or still current models, although some of them are now no longer available.

Grail Knights Command (I didn't create a Champion because there is none in the rules). The standard bearer is the BSB model, but carrying the Grail Knights standard.
