Battle Pilgrims is a Bretonnia melee infantry unit. Although a fierce foe to Bretonnia's enemies, Knights should be wary of their kleptomaniac tendencies…
Wherever the Grail Knights travel, they gather a trail of fanatical worshippers whose only goal in life is to bask in the reflected glory of these mighty individuals. Driven by relentless obsession, these devout followers collect almost anything that a Grail Knight casts away, whether it be scraps of ruined armour, clothing, or even discarded food. Such is their burning passion, these religious scavengers will follow their idol through all weathers and lands, exulting in his acts and praising his sparing words. The Knights bear these followers with a dutiful resignation that borders on the stoic, though they endeavour not to encourage their self-appointed apostles. This is a vain hope, for even the merest word or gesture is seized upon as an act of great import and eagerly immortalised in tales and discordant song. If a Grail Knight is unfortunate enough to fall in battle, his devoted followers will swarm over this corpse, picking it clean of anything that could bear the Blessing of the Lady.
- ↑ Shielded: Shields have a chance of blocking arrows, bolts, rifle shots and similar small arms fire - but only in a forward facing arc.
- ↑ Frenzy: Units with frenzy cause more damage while their leadership is high.

The first decent infantry for Bretonnia, these fanatics will deal solid damage as well as hold the line longer than Men-at-Arms because of their Frenzy and relatively high leadership. Their armor is the same as Men-at-Arms, which is relatively low so they should not be relied upon to tank massive damage.
