The Paths of Virtue, also known as the Paths of the Chivalrous Knight, were styles of combat and warfare practiced by the Knights of Bretonnia.


The History of Bretonnia is replete with tales of honour and glory, and none are more glorious than those of Gilles le Breton and his mighty Grail Companions. Together they freed their land from the armies of Greenskins, Chaos and the Undead before founding the great kingdom of Bretonnia. Each of these knights represented the very pinnacle of martial achievement and nobility, and throughout Bretonnian history every knight since then has them up as virtuous examples of all that is best about their code of honour. Each of the Companions of Gilles exemplified a particular virtue of battle and later knights would seek to emulate the virtue of one of these divine warriors.[1]
