With the Armati rulebook become more difficult to find, how is Armati doing in your area?

I have a different question, when Armati and…what was the other set by those guys?… came out there was supposed to be a program to register games and wins and give certificates to "winners" nationwide.

Did THAT ever happen?

Hey Rocky,
I think the reward system was for Tactica.

Actually we've been playing Armati recently.
7 games last month alone. And a big game
planned in a few weeks.
Still playing the original/wAdvanced Armati
lists and revisions.
For me it remains the best 'ancients' tournament set of rules out there.
I feel they dropped the ball with Armati,
by leaving out the renaissance armies in the
newest edition.

Armati? Never heard of it.

Played 2 games last week, Armati II, Egyptians vs. Hittites, 100 points. Classic chariot matchup. Hatti won both, but it was dang close both times.

"Armati II" must have had a very small print run. I still have not succeeded in finding a copy of it anywhere. If anyone wants to sell their copy, please contact me at ccooperateagledotorg

I have to admit, that I love games
that punish bad setups.
And Armati certainly does.

here's a review

I believe OMM has copies of a reprint of Armati II.

The warflute link above is a site full of additional army lists and discussions there of.

Its still alive and kicking.

And I believe Tactica 2 and Armati Rennaissance are nearing completion as well.

glasgow club still plays them .. no 1 ruleset here…

Contact Dennis at On Military Matters. He has new spiral bound Armati II rules.

I saw Armati as an evolution of Tactica in a good direction and well worth playing though it was not very popular here. I still like the Advanced Armati campaign rules but the other aspects I liked about Armati I get in newer sets (e.g., FoG or Impetus).

We play Armati II all the time, it's a great ruleset. We put on two games at our local convention yesterday. Vancouver B.C. Canada.

If you want to by you can get ahold of Imperial Hobbies in Richmond B.C. Canada.

D6 Junkie: Thanks for the link.

We play alot of Armati (Armati II) on Long Island. There will be a tournament at Historicon.

Check for more info and additional approved army lists and Warflute and for info on the upcoming tournament.

As for the database of army wins and losses it sort of petered out.

One more thing: The game is worth finding and playing. We've played WAB DBA, BBDMA, DBM, FoG and just started Basic Impetus…and Armati IMHO is still the best system.

There is a tournament in April in Florida.
