Impetus 2

Watermarked PDF

Second edition of Impetus, the popular set of wargame rules that aims to simulate battles with miniature figures in the Ancient, Medieval and Renaissance periods. The extremely flexible system allows you to recreate over 3,000 years of history, from Ancient Sumeria to the Great Italian Wars and even further.
Until the release of the updated lists you can still use the old Extra Impetus supplements (see the bundle offer on Wargames Vault) provided you download from the document that helps you to adapt the lists (with minimal changes).

Also avialable on Dadi&Piombo website several beta lists (free download).

What scale minis are these rules designed for? The pre-view feature does not work. Base size width for this rule set? I have a lot of DBA & DBM armies...will they adapt to this rule set w/o having to rebase the figs?

Mainly 15mm and 25/28mm. But 20, 10 or 5mm are also covered.

The basic unit size uses 4 DBA infantry bases in a block 2 wide by 2 deep, and 2 DBA other bases in a block 2 wide by 1 deep.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
