As promised I have uploaded a few images from the Impetus game we played last yesterday with Leroy Simpson's beautifully painted Perry Miniatures Samurai and Chosen Koreans. The reason I thought we would uses these beauties is because Leroy has been painting them for the last four years and has never seen his whole collection on the board, let a loan play a game with them...so there they are. The game went well, however we did have to 'Ring a Friend' a few times to clarify some of the finer details of the Impetus rule system. Which mainly had to do with the latest changes. But as I said in the last post the rules are nicely written and easily picked up by a beginner, this only being my second game and John's third.
Leroy has based his armies for WAB, however 'Divined Wind' never made it to the printing press. But with but armies based the same it was easy to set them up for the Impetus rule system. I had three bases for the cavalry and anywhere from six to nine bases for the infantry. As for the army lists they seemed to work out ok, however there was some discussion in regards to whether the mounted samurai should have the ability to used the composite bow? But they do have impetus +4 so that might even up the odds?? In regards to the Koreans they seemed to have worked ok as long as the infantry units get to fight in large formations they should hold together longer. Our Koreans lasted about six turns before the left flank collapsed and the army was forced to do a test. It was not all one sided however as they took a number of Japanese with them. Overall I think once the army lists are finalised and released it should enable a good even game.
