Peasant Mob is a Bretonnia melee infantry unit. "Rejoice! For a Knight of Bretonnia provides your shield…"


The life of a Bretonnian peasant is thankless, impoverished and - if the gods are merciful - short. Yet it is their duty to labour for, pay tribute to, and die in service of their Liege. Yet although a life spent toiling the land for pitiful gain is a damnable existence, it pales next to a day upon the battlefield. And indeed, should a Duke ride to war, he will surely drag his droves of human chattel along with him. These hapless wanderers are then assuredly butchered in their multitudes as fodder to their Lord's worthy cause. To make their numbers count, peasants are ordered into huddled units on the battlefield, which makes up for their lack of training and skill. Like Men-At-Arms, Peasant Mobs are not very reliable if left to their own devices, but under the stern gaze of a Knight can aspire to adequate, though not exceptional, deeds.


  • Expendable: This unit is comparably cheap to recruit, maintain and replenish.
  • Poor Leadership: This unit suffers from poor leadership and will easily rout. Keep its flanks secure and your Lord or other encouraging units nearby.

They're extremely cheap to upkeep(with the right upgrades) so you can have a secondary army filled with them and use them like Skavenslaves, in the campaign. Otherwise use them as meat shields in multiplayer for your better troops. They are great for absorbing charges, giving time for the Bretonnian cavalry or ranged units to deal damage.
