Yeah, there's also Dark and High Elves.
I'm hoping Skaven are one of the starting races for the first big expansion.
I don't think it is a surprise given Bretonnia dominate the west of the map but I had concerns, before you mentioned that they have fallen out of favour, that it would be too similar to the Empire. I know the Lady of the Lake and more knight/cavalry then Empire but have the concern
What's funny/sad is that even though Bretonnia is "the cavalry faction", thanks to not being updated for so long everything I've read says their best--the Grail Knights--are worse than Blood Knights, Chaos Knights, or the various monstrous cavalry units. I know there are fan army lists for outdated armies (and armies mention but with no official book, like Araby or Cathay) and I wouldn't be shocked if CA takes a bit of inspiration from them.
To be fair that's a reasonable outcome of sticking to Arthurian Britain levels of technology during the Renaissance. Cannons don't really care how brave you are.
