Mounted Yeomen Archers is a Bretonnia cavalry unit in Total War: Warhammer. Archery from horseback is fast and dangerous to the enemy, who have little time to react.


As they hold such privileged positions as head gaolers and militia sergeants, to become a Yeoman is the highest rank to which a peasant can aspire. It takes many years of dedicated service for Men-at-Arms to be so promoted, and even then only an act of bravery on the battlefield will guarantee ascension. Though no peasant may ride the steeds of the Bretonnian Lords, favoured Yeomen are permitted to ride to battle on draught horses. Such troops will often scout ahead of the main army and keep the Knights informed of enemy movements � a dangerous task, and one which earns no honour, so it is a task that the nobility believe is best performed by peasants. All Men-at-Arms dream of one day becoming a Yeoman, possibly because of the folk stories that tell of Yeomen being raised to Knighthood after performing a great service or some brave deed. The truth is that it is almost unheard of for a peasant to be elevated in this way � the nobility have no wish to sully their ranks with low-born commoners.


  • Vanguard Deployment: This unit can deploy in an expanded deployment area, allowing it to start the battle within striking distance of the enemy - or somewhere unexpected.
  • Very Fast: This unit can run circles around most other units, taunting and harrassing the enemy or evading its missile fire.


This unit offers the same benefits as Mounted Yeomen do with the obvious bonus of having ranged attacks. These units are much better at harassing enemy front lines with their ranged attacks and running away before they can be caught.
