Still got all mine in packs and some units of peg knights, along with 3k of Araby.
Fell out with the game due to lack of opponents.
Now GW have killed off the range, I have to question if I will ever get these painted  :'(

Eureka definitely do Pegasus knights

Had it confirmed from them direct, currently you get a pack of 15 for $15AUD they're going to be officially released in 2-3 months, but you can order them now
Do you, (or anyone else for that matter), know what other goodies Eureka are intending to release in the near-ish future please?

I was informed that they are releasing ogres, some new high elves, and snakemen at the same time as the pegasus knights, I was told this on the 11th of June and the timescale was 'about 3 months'

this is from Nic Robson at eureka so should be genuine!

Thanks for the "heads up"!  With the Tridente and Old Glory figures, it looks like a viable Bret army is possible without breaking the bank.

Bump for my question instead of making a new topic:

Anyone know any good female sorceress proxies at 10mm scale?

Looks like only Eureka have one mounted on a unicorn but that's meant for Wood Elves, with an Orion figure, wood hags and hounds with it. :-X

EDIT: Also, any chance anyone has a pic of the Old Glory trebuchet for scale?  Everyone says it's MASSIVE even at 10mm scale and I'm worried it won't fit on a 60mm by 40mm base.

I guess you could always use the hounds mixed in with knights and characters as hunting dogs (= filler). No idea how you'd work the hags and the Orion figure in though  :-\

Oh yeah the hounds are fab!  Wish I could have a whole blister of them!  The unicorns are fab, if I could have a dismounted female wizard that would work.

I have 1 (or maybe 2?) spare sorceresses on unicorns - I only wanted the hounds for my Albion army anyway. Send me a PM and we can probably sort something out.

Just something I realised - does anyone make a 10mm Hippogriff for Bretonnians?

Just looking over the tournament list and realised it's a bit like a gryphon, should I just use an Empire General figure?

Could convert one using a pegasus and giant eagle maybe?

Failing that, empire griffon rider would work fine

Yeah looking at my gryphon in his pack now, I reckon he would do just fine for a hyppogryff stand in!

Well that was a pleasant surprise when I got home tonight.

It was my birthday recently and I'd been considering a Kindle but decided against it in the end. My eldest was going to send me a voucher for some Kindle books but scrubbed that idea when I told him I wasn't getting one. He said he'd think of something else to send.

I'd mentioned in passing that I was going to get a Brettonian army. Tonight there was a padded envelope from him containing 1 pack each of the following:

http://www.pendraken.co.uk/EMM1-p2888/
http://www.pendraken.co.uk/ELM2-p2840/
http://www.pendraken.co.uk/ELM7-p2845/
http://www.pendraken.co.uk/ELM8-p2846/

So a unit each of knights, squires, bowmen and infantry I will probably mix in with http://www.pendraken.co.uk/ELM14-p2852/ for a bit of extra variety in peasant units.

I'd looked at Pendraken's website and wasn't too impressed with the figures in the photos but "in the flesh" they look pretty good and are very close to the same size as WM Empire figures. They'll do for me, plus they are a bargain at 4 a pack. Happy days :)

Now all I need is somewhere to get on with it all - the table in the back room is full of the wife and daughters crafting/dress-making junk, so I'll probably have to wait until September when she goes back to uni.  :(

Largely based on the above discussion and suggestions I have now added a blog post about Brettonian armies without GW miniatures:

Don't forget that Pendraken do plain unicorns:

And that Old Glory do a trebuchet (but it is biiiig):

Yeah, I think the Old Glory trebuchet would not fit on a warmaster base plus it cost 4 times the pendraken one (where you get 2 per pack).

Also the Pendraken Unicorns would need a female wizard rider or something to be useful. I wonder if they have something suitable.
