Hi All,

Just returning from a wargaming hiatus for the past few years. I'm a long-time Impetus player, older vintage from when the game first came out. Just discovered the updated BI2 and purchased. Broke out the armies and tried a game. Short version - love it. Has all the tension of Impetus and I didn't particularly miss the Discipline levels, multiple moves, counter-charges and so on.

But enough of this rambling... my questions;

1. pg 10; 6.1.3. - after these modifiers have been applied, if the number of dice remaining is 0 or less, does that mean the unit doesn't shoot? I assume it isn't like melee, where there is always a minimum of one attack die.

2. same section - "No modifier is applied to FL with Javelin and to S;" Does that mean S with Javelin or all S? If the latter, I don't see any value in having S with Javelin, compared say to a Sling or Short Bow B. Please enlighten me on this one.

3. pg 26; 5.7. Numidians 215-148 BC - "1st option: change to CL with...;" Does this have to be VBU: 3 or VBU: 4 CL? Is it indicated anywhere?

Thanks - J

1. You are right, unlike melee there is not a minimum of attack dice. After adding modifcators it is possible, that you cannot shoot.

2. Again you are right, it means S in general. It is not relevant if they are using javelin.

3. Good question. I would rather go with pick any CL since it is not stated specifically.
