Pictures of Basic Impetus game

Hi Guys

Ed & I played two games of Basic Impetus last night, Macedonian versus Persians. We had planned to do a full write up with sequenced pictures but there were a good few interuptions and we got caught up in the game before we realised we hadnt taken a photo in about 4 turns. So instead, here is a few shots from both games.








The games were good fun. The first was a close game, with the Persians winning. The second was even closer, with the Macedonians winning, just. Two wins for Ed, so he must have been cheating or using tactics or something. Most  of the units with good stats were underwhealing do to appalingly bad luck, and the dregs of the levy performing well above expectations. The scythed chariot finally killed something ( a unit of pike) but ran out of steam and bit the dust. Might take on the Galatians next to see how loony Celts vs Pike phalanx works out.

  2. Thanks Phil.

    FMB, not yet. I want to pick up the full rules to give them a try, but things are tight at the minute. It is on the wish list for next year.

  3. Good AAR and colorful armies! I believe you'll enjoy the Galatians. As impetuous units, they are tough to stop if they go in unnicked. Good luck!

  4. Thanks Monty.

    I am enjoying doing historical match-ups with BI, so want to try out every combination my figure collection will allow. I think the Galatians may suffer vs pike, but it will be fun to try out.

  5. What is this 'we' forgot to take pictures business? That was the day for the levy to shine.
