A friend has recently convinced me to give these rules a go but I've just noticed that a second edition has just been launched. Can anyone advise me if it is worth buying the new edition as I have an option to buy the old edition quite cheaply from another friend who's not that keen on them?

Also, can anyone tell me where I can find an army list for the Goths please? I don't have any of the supplements but the 3 I was able to check didn't have any lists for Goths or similar.

There are many changes in the new edition. I would buy the latest. As for Goths, 3rd and 4th Century AD lists are in Extra 3.

I would agree – my copy of the new book arrived today. I've been playing for years but the changes improve playability IMO so I would definitely go for the up to date set.

Impetus 2nd Edition seems a good way to go.

Are the army lists still valid? Or should wait on updated lists as well?

They are selling the lists in bundles with the new rules on the Impetus web so I would assume so….

Thanks for the info chaps.

The existing lists are definitely compatible. Their website has a short (1 page) file explaining how to use the lists with the 2nd edition rules. The adjustments are very minor. I think I will pick up a set of the new rules at the York show in February if someone has them (or order online if not)

yes I confirm that the Extra Impetus supplements are still valid. As they will be subsitute in a future (not until the end of the year, possibly later) you could consider to take them as pdf (cheaper) on Wargames Vault
