In my game today versus The evil Tibby and his legions my first 3 cohesion tests were 6's. This spike in the probability curve rendered 3 entire units of Ashigaru non effective from their first hit taken. If I had 1 or 2 re-rolls that would of helped instead of feeling like I was playing the rest of the game 77pts short.

Who won the game?
Battle report on your blog maybe?

The legions of Tibby won. Its hard to make a come back after such a start due to bad dice.

Had a bit of a think on the re-roll thing and have looked at other tournaments run around the world for Impetus. None of them allow re-rolls. I have also PMed a few notable players (from overseas) and they don't use them either. So I am of a mind to keep with the status quo. I realise this will now probably cost me a game as I have cursed myself :roll:

Good work Tim list checked and ok. I will post mine up soon.
Had my second game of Impetus last night vs Richard's Romans. Great fun with game done easily in 2 hours. Made a few mistakes but in the end the pride of Romans legions fell to the Korean hordes.
Painting update and have finished all my foot elements and now just have 4 cavelry stands to go and my baggage. A few more late nights coming up as we only have two weeks to go. Will post some new pictures up on my blog soon.

Thanks to all who attended Southcon and participated in the Impetus comp. Special thanks to Al, Graeme and Richard who filled in the bye round.
Results are in and here they are:
1st Che (Roman)
2nd Craig (Korean)
3rd Nick (Samurai)
Best army Tim (Samurai)
I have put some photos up on my blog http://peopleschampwargamingblog.blogspot.co.nz/
Impetus will be back in 2014 at Southcon and as this year will be themed on a period but will be welcome to all. More of that later...
