Basic Impetus v Impetus?

Post by jeztodd on Tue Feb 23, 2016 5:46 pm

Hi All

Just wondering if regular players are mixing between playing Basic Impetus and Impetus? This has just arisen for me as have some SAGA Norman and Anglo Dane figures - I want to use for an Impetus game but did not have enough skirmish figures for a large army.

I suddenly thought of Basic Impetus and can see from the list that this would be a possibility. I can easily add on to a few sabot type bases. This led me to review the Basic Impetus rules and found I quite liked the simpler approach in a lot of areas.

I have not played Basic Impetus yet though - just curious if other players are mixing and matching?

Sure I play both Basic and full Impetus. Basic Impetus is a great way to get your figures on the table quickly and equally gives a quick easy game. Later you can play full Impetus which is a more comprehensive game, but of course requires more figures and time to play. Both versions are highly enjoyable so you really can't go wrong.

Hi Jez, I had my first game yesterday for basic Impetus 2.0 and I really liked it. It is a rather quick game perfect for a limited time frame. Having around 10 Elements makes it possible to have enough tactical options to have fun especially because the lists are historical flavoured with strengths and weaknesses.

I play both, but I will stick to BI 2.0 for the next time due to time limits and the fact, that I really like the moving distances of BI more with the new H measurement basis instead of BU. Lorenzo did also change the distances and chances for a successful persuit, which is less likely in BI. That changes the game in a nice way. Sometimes a flank was so strangely disrupted because there were persuits going on in opposite directions. Since this is now less likely, the look of a battle works better for me. Moreover I think it might also work to use whatever Impetus Rule you like in Basic Impetus e.g. supported flanks or indirect fire if you want to beef up the option a little bit. However it is a difference and every Impetus player needs to accept, that BI is less detailed.
