The Arrowhead is a unique fighting formation utilised by the Peasant Bowmen of Bretonnia.


The Arrowhead consists of a single Bowman in the front, with two bowmen behind him, three behind them, and so on, forming a wedge shape exactly the same as the knightly Lance Formation.[1]

The Arrowhead is designed to enable as many Bowmen as possible to concentrate their withering fire upon the enemy. Where the Lance is a mobile attacking formation, the Arrowhead is a defensive formation designed to withstand an enemy's assault.[1]
