Has it changed much from the first edition. Any players out there that can give me the low down.

I don't think it has changed a great deal, but as I understand it, there was some definite improvements. I play A2 and enjoy it immensley. Easy to get into, and makes you really think about your deployment, and other things. Check out the Yahoo group. It has a great deal of info. Also, is an Armati site that has all kinds of good stuff.

Deploy, advance/or not, enter into missile barrages/melees, and hope you roll the dice well to win.

If you owned Armati but not "Advanced Armati" in 1st edition, you didn't get the variable army lists, which is a big change. Sadly, they dropped the English Civil War in A2.

I have played A1 for years but didnt know if it was worth getting A2. I shall check out the yahoo groups, cheers.

"Deploy, advance/or not, enter into missile barrages/melees, and hope you roll the dice well to win."

That's it in a nutshell.

However, you omitted to mention the diversion of spending hours, if not weeks or months, attempting to divine the author's intentions on (too) many points in his rules (Napoleonic version, especially, included).

There exists, after several years, active disagreement and discussion, even among experienced players, on how to interpret an alarming portion of the rules.
