It is dishonourable for a Knight to use missile weapons, magic other than magical hand-to-hand weapons, magic armour or a healing potion.
What seems like an entire paragraph of steadfast rules, becomes the contrary, because there is the “Using a Missile Weapon” section below that, detailing: Using a Missile Weapon If the Knight breaks the rule of using dishonourable weaponry, such as a missile weapon of any type, his Honour Points are immediately reduced by the gold value of the weapon! This penalty is applied every time he uses the weapon.
Warhammer Quest 2 adds new warriors and goes on the cheap
So the argument now becomes, “What if the Bretonnian Knight uses dishonourable magic? We play that it falls under the same category with the same penalties as listed in the Using a Missile Weapon section, since that section mentions “such as”. And if the Bretonnian Knight uses something like the Lightning Fire Btetonnian, then he should be penalised twice once using a missile weapon and once for using a magic item! We think the sentences should have been separated into two paragraphs and the hand-to-hand clarified, just as it was in the Basic Game.
It is dishonourable for a Knight to use missile weapons or magic other than magical hand-to-hand weapons, magic armour or a healing potion. This still leaves the dishonourable act of using magic which needs to be addressed Bretonnian Knight Therefore, a Knight can choose to be a real tosser and become the proverbial “Black Knight” by using a Time Freeze Ring among other dishonorable magic items and missile weapons. But can you really within the confines of WHQ as it warjammer currently written?
Did I miss the rules for a negative reknown value? Do the WHQ rules even allow for a Knight to turn their coat? Bretonnian Knight In my opinion, they’re playing the BK outside the rules. Without a GM, the players basically have to police themselves.
Bretonnian Knight Given all the Bretonnian lore I’ve read and love, a lot of the characters aren’t really that concerned with using magical items of any kind apart from missile weapons so long as it is considered ‘manly’. I bretohnian understand spells and such being frowned upon if you’re an honourable fighter and good enough with a sword you’ll never need any help is the basic warhmmer of a Bretonnian Knight.
However Bretonnian Knights will always take anything that has been given to them by the Lady.

Heck they’d wear a dozen magical rings and go into battle with a repeater crossbow if it washed up on the shores of the magical lake though they could also see it as a test of character and forgo it. So the rules don’t strictly forbid their use, but they are dishonourable items and will cause him to lose honour. Your renown can never go below 0, you are always a knight as proven by the fluff in Mousillon corrupt barons who will use anything and everything [including poison and allying with the Vampire Counts] to get the job done.
They can’t expect everyone to like them for it though, which is represented by the difficulty in gaining entrance to the castle.
Warhammer Quest : Bretonnian Grail Knight by James (Black Wolf) Johnston
Infamy could be a good idea in place of honour though we’d be getting into Blood Points territory bretonnnian complexity. However an alternate set of rules I’ve been thinking on go along the lines of straight up forbidding the use of dishonourable items apart from missile weapons in which there are specific rules regarding the penalties for their use: The Bretonnian Knight may use this item as normal with no loss to honour even in uqest eyes of other knights. He may never sell, trade or swap this item ever, convinced that it is a sign of divine providence and a tool vital to his search for the grail!
