Although Impetus is drawing me towards it like a siren, I maintained restraint and based them (for now) in the old way. If based in the Impetus "big-block" way, one of the allures of Impetus is apparent. With 60mm base depths, javelin protrusions from the two ranks no longer prevent two bases from forming up front-to-back. Until I wrestled with the front to back javelin alignment problem, my Impetus plan was to use 120mm x 60mm sabots on which to temporarily mount these stands. This spear jostling pushes me even more strongly into thoughts of rebasing.
Field of Glory was a system that members of the group highly anticipated before its release. FoG is still played regularly by some in Spokane although I haven't sampled the new, v2.0 rules. While the production values are high and I enjoy re-reading the books, the game itself never produced much inspiration. The books, themselves, are useful simply for the army lists and purchases can be justified for those lists alone. Add in the hardbound and full color and the books are a nice addition to a gamer's library. I found the game to be tedious and much more work than I was willing to suffer. Mechanisms seemed too cumbersome and I left many a game feeling battered by both opponent and text. I should note that I occasionally still get in a game of FoG but most of my ancients gaming has been spent with Commands and Colors.
