Grail Reliquae is a Bretonnia melee infantry unit. The interred remains of Knights are defended violently by those whose existence gives them purpose.


Many bands of pilgrims cart around a Grail Reliquae wherever they go, the corpse of a departed Knight resting at its centre. A Reliquae's exterior is a gaudy melange, adorned with trinkets gathered from many Grail Knights from across all corners of the realm. The pilgrims devote themselves to this makeshift, portable shrine, supplicating themselves before it as if it were a living Grail Knight, praying for its blessing. To pilgrims, the Reliquae is the ultimate icon of their devotion to both the Lady of the Lake and her Knights, from which the chosen amongst them can preach their creed. There is never a shortage of listeners for these demagogues either, for at each town or village the common people flock to the Reliquae so that they might hear, in graphic detail, the latest tales and deeds of the heroic Knight who unintentionally leads the procession.

Because of its aura buffs, this unit is very useful for keeping near your front line. It will ensure that nearby peasant infantry won't rout as quickly. The boost to leadership alongside making them immune to psychology goes a long way to making them stay in the fight longer. The Reliquae is a good choice to bring when you want your front line to be more durable or otherwise want your infantry to perform better. It is obviously a target for archers and flying units however.


  • The Reliquae fulfills a similar role to a corpse cart, ironic given that it is a corpse itself.
