Is this project still going to happen? If so what timescale now (realistic).

Also please re-activate the old links to the rules and points list.

dadiepiombo.com/bifendef.pdf and dadiepiombo.com/bipts-eng.pdf

Or place the files somewhere accessible. I sent a couple of interested new players the rule links yesterday but they are dead currently.

Since GW announced the "new Warhammer" fantasy gamers are looking for a replacement option.

the full (and official) Fantasy version will be released after Impetus 2 as will share the same concepts, but I'm considering to make and official fantasy version for Basic Impetus.

I think a Fantasy version based on Basic Impetus should actually be the first one done, likely to entice more players to give it a try.

We have started to develop the fantasy version of Lords&Servats with the idea of sharing some concepts.
One of the playtester has developped some more idea for that could work for Basic Impetus as well. But at the moment I have many other thing to complete that are in a more advanced stage

well, as a stand alone book not. But with the release of the new Basic Impetus, maybe I can make a pdf with some extra rules to be adapted for fantasy and few lists. But not before fall.

Sad news, but understandable, you'll have a much better idea about what the wargamers out there are clambering for.

I assumed there would be a bit of a gap in the market for a mass fantasy battle set? Skirmish sets are released every 2nd Tuesday; Warhammer not even pretending to be a fantasy battle game any more, and no other major rule writer (with the exception of Mantic Games) currently pushing anything.

Just to clarify - only meant 'sad news' because I'd convinced myself Fantasy Impetus was imminent (though wasn't expecting a Baroque style publication).

well it is not just a question of what the market wants, but time to prepare a set. I'm not a fantasy player so for me it is harder. But also it means to have some fantasy figures to play with and last, but not least, the problem to have pictures of fantasy armies for the book, without haveing trouble of copyright etc.

All this slows down the making. But a free pdf to upgrade the new Basic Impetus version is not a huge task and a way to let more people to test.

For the copyright concerns, is it the manufacturer, painter, or owner, that is important?

for historical there are no problems. The owner of the figure is credited and the manufacturer is only happy to be in the rules as it is free advertising.

But for the fantasy or for games where rules and miniatures are linked, you can get problems. If I use GW figures, for sure I could have problems.
Once I asked to a Sci Fi miniature manufactures to use their figs to illustrate Koncordia, but the owner told me he had linked his figs to another game.

Ok I rather thought that this

Meant that we might see a Basic Fantasy before Impetus II

Appreciate you have many things to work on these days but surely an official fantasy BI isn't a huge development task - the existing one is almost there it just needs confirmation on basing formats and structure. I'd certainly expect the fantasy family to follow on the coat tails of Historical Impetus so wouldn't expect anything upgraded more than the fantasy version of current BI.

For me I'm very reluctant to base and commit to the structure presented in the existing version. In the same way I wasn't prepared to base for the development version of Baroque in case things changed. You may be undervaluing the value of the "official" tag IMO.

OK, so a year and a half later......what is the current status of the Fantasy mass battle rules?

Which ruleset have you decided to base them on; Impetus, Impetus 2 or Basic Impetus 2 or are they a stand alone game?

........and another year passes, without the rules or an answer to the question.

Please, is this going to happen (soon? ever?) or should we all be looking at other Fantasy Wargame options now?
