Basic Impetus


Impetus is a set of wargame rules that aims to simulate battles with miniatures in the ancient, medieval and renaissance period. Basic Impetus is a free, simplified, version of those rules. The aim of Basic Impetus is to accompany you on your first steps towards the world of Impetus, giving you a chance to play immediately with a smaller number of miniatures.

Being just a “taste” of the full rules we have left out a lot of the elements that are the fundamental characteristics of the original rules, to which you are referred for a more structured and exciting game.

Basing
BASIC IMPETUS uses a basing system that is compatible with the most popular rules. An IMPETUS base (a Unit) has a double frontage compared to DBM or DBA and quite similar to one adopted by Armati.

Base depth is not critical so you can use already based armies.
