IMPETUS

The Rulebook

Impetus is an innovative 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.

Impetus can be played with 6mm, 10mm, 15mm, 20mm (1/72) and 25/28mm scale miniatures, and you won't even need to re-base your armies.

The manual includes 15 sample lists and many others are included in our supplements.

All amendments, clarification and tournaments rules are collected in Advanced Impetus (free pdf).

    Basing

    Impetus is popular for its "big bases" in diorama style.
    Actually it is a multiple of a classic system, to avoid rebasing. On the other hand basing on big bases has several advantages, aesthetical (you can make a diorama), economical (no need to buy those extra 2 figs to complete your base) and practical (easy to move and keeps you figures safe).
