Impetuous Troopers are always eager to engage in combat.


Impetuous Phase, Obligatory.

(See FAQs & Errata. Some Effects only apply during the Impetuous activation.)

  • During the Turn's Impetuous Phase, the player may activate each Impetuous Trooper once, without spending an Order.
  • During the Turn's Tactical Phase, the player will place an Impetuous Token next to every Trooper with this Special Skill. This Token will be removed when the Trooper is activated, or at the end of the Impetuous Phase for any Trooper that has not been activated.
  • Impetuous activations only allow a fixed set of Skill combinations:
  • When declaring Move, Jump, or Climb, the Trooper must always move the full corresponding MOV value, attempting to perform the first of these options that the Trooper can complete:
  1. Enter Silhouette contact with an Enemy Trooper during this move.
  2. Go towards the Enemy Deployment Zone without doubling back from the movement's starting position. (See FAQs & Errata.)
  • Troopers may only move a shorter distance if they reach Silhouette contact with an Enemy or a Special Terrain area hinders their Movement or forces them to declare Jump or Climb.
  • An Impetuous Trooper that has not been deployed on the gaming table due to an Airborne Deployment Special Skill may use their Impetuous activation to Deploy during the Impetuous Phase of their player's Turn.
  • Impetuous Troopers cannot benefit from Partial Cover MODs.
  • Players in Retreat! situation do not carry out the Impetuous Phase during their Turn.
  • Impetuous Troopers cannot enter Marker States (Camouflaged, Impersonation...), or any other States that say so.
