Size is not what matters it is how the game flows.

And Impetus battles flow very well indeed! grin

POLL DESCRIPTION

According to Wargames Soldiers & Strategy magazine, one of the keys to the success of the Impetus Ancients ruleset is their use of larger bases:

...one of the most revolutionary items of Impetus is its original system of bases. In short, the bases are large, each one equivalent to four FoG bases in two lines. This provides us with many possibilities... our figures will no longer have to be perfectly aligned (and confronted) like chess pawns, but can be placed according to the others, officers on horse can be included in infantry units and... real dioramas can be created with each deployment.

The magazine also points out that, since there is no required number of figures per base with Impetus, players can use less figures for their armies, saving money and painting time.

Do you believe that larger bases are the future for Ancients?
