Being at a loose end at the club this week, myself and Mitch decided to give the Basic Impetus rules a run out using my Trojan War collection. This will likely get me inspired to get the rest of them painted up. I went with 2 pretty similar forces, A mix of heavy and light infantry supported by some skirmishers. I donated the generals by adding a hero to one of the units. So Diomedes would be facing off against Paris.
We did manage to get through 2 games in the night. Added chariots and archers for the second game. Each side claimed a victory. The rules themselves are simple and fun. They can also be quite brutal. We both enjoyed them and found by the second game we were able to easily work out the combats and cohesion tests. No game report but a few pics from the game. I didn't take many as I was too busy enjoying the games.
|Battle lines close|
|Trojans await the Achaians|
|Heavy infantry prepare to clash|
|Achaian centre collapses with the loss of Diomedes|
|Brown chips represent disorder|
|Trojan right flank collapses|
So these rules will definitely be getting another run out in the future.
