I have come to suspect that building a 500 point list for the Brets under the current rules is impossible. Is there a possible 500 point list? Any help would be appreciated!

How do you mean impossible..? Well actually now that I think about it, it IS against the rules. Your only allowed MAX of one character, yet brettonians MUST take a BSB. But that one character CANNOT Be a BSB. Fucking perplexing. Check the faq, to see if it has been adressed. Assumign that has been cleared up. I dont see why you wouldnt be able to make a 500pts list.

Actually the reason I believe it is impossible is because I cannot fit the required general and BSB in the 125 points allowed for heroes in a 500 pt army. Without getting into specific point values, I can also say that I can't use the Lord points to get a general either. As for the 1 character limit, that has never been the case for Brets because they have a rule that gives them one extra character. However that doesn't apply (I believe) in 8th ed because of the faq.

But I believe I am only allowed 125 points for heroes. Therefore if paladins were worth 65 (which I don't believe is accurate, but I can't post their value) it would still be 130 points, even without the banner. Additionally, no lord can be put on the field at 125.

It would only be that expensive if you fully equipped him. I knew it wasnt that cost, I was ball parking it :p So I didnt break the rules.

No you see the bare bones minimum for a lord is still too high. Even without a shield or anything he costs too much.

You can have a Paladin and a Paladin BSB in a 500pt army if they are both on foot - 60 pts each. It would be rather strange to say the least! Give the Paladin a shield, put him and the BSB in with a unit of 23 Men-at-arms with full command. Add 6 knights errant with the errantry banner and 12 bowmen and it all comes in at under 500pts. (I think!)

I think that paladin have to have a mount unless they purchase the virtue of Empathy. However, that also costs points, and two paladins with Empathy cost more than 125. Not even having an Empathy Paladin and a foot Damsel is cheap enough. I would still have to shave off points which just aren't there to shave.

My bad, I forgot about virtue of empathy. In the old border patrol game, based on 500pts, brets didnt have to take a BSB. I still play it at times, it makes for some interesting games.
