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.

Background[edit | edit source]

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[edit | edit source]

  • 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.
