Total War: WARHAMMER Wiki

Artois is a minor Bretonnia faction introduced in Total War: Warhammer. It is the combination of two dukedoms from the tabletop, Artois and Gisoreux.

Artois does not appear in the Season of Revelation campaign, but Gisoreux does.


The forested realm of Artois has notable significance in Bretonnia’s history – it was the location of the first Gathering of the Companions, where the fourteen newly-united Dukedoms were first legitimised. Emblazoned on the Heraldry of Artois is the head of the monstrous boar Morthanok, symbol of Lord Folgar, the first Duke of Artois. A renowned hunter and lancer, Folgar's skills made him an invaluable Companion Knight who fought in several Great Battles alongside Gilles le Breton. Morthanok’s image is a reminder of the inaugural feast of the Companions, for which Folgar hunted down and slew the dangerous beast.

Diplomatic traits[]

  • Aggressive - Belligerent and wermongering, their armies reach far with little regard for defence.
  • Unreliable - Agreements hold little sway. This one is not to be trusted.
  • Underdog - Instead of trying to get to the top of the food chain, this one prefers joining a worthy faction in confederation.
