Fantasy Battles: The 9th Age

This site uses cookies. By continuing to browse this site, you are agreeing to our Cookie Policy.

Fantasy Battles: The 9th Age is an independent table top miniature wargame set in a fantasy world, in which players take control of armies and set them upon one another in conflicts ranging from minor skirmishes to mighty battles with hundreds of models.

The game and all of its rules are completely free to download and use, and consist of a main rulebook and over fifteen army documents, ranging from stoic men and noble elves to the feral orcs and dread worshipers of the dark gods. You can easily assemble your own army using appropriate 28mm miniatures from any manufacturer.

Fantasy Battles: The 9th Age has been created by a group of experienced wargamers, a large supportive staff and continuous input from the wargaming community. We aim to provide a competitive, balanced and fun game, with updates and new rules to be released regularly.

We’ve created 16 unique armies from the Dread Elves in the west to the Ogre Khans in the east. Each army has different units and playstyles and can be represented by models from any 28mm model company. People said it was impossible, but we have created a game that is both balanced and fun. Don’t believe us? Try it for yourselves.

Happy wargaming.

    I'll just make one account and post exactly one, highly popular post. Then my ratio will be something like 8:1. Beat that.

    I did not know there is a competition...

    And where is the scoreboard ?!

    ;)

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Eldan

    I could probably write a script that extracts that data from the userbase and calculates a ratio...

    Omarcomin

    Yeah but your ultra conservative base artificially inflates your numbers with echo chamber post liking. I have mass appeal but occasionally miss the mark.

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    piteglio

    omarcomin's appeal cannot be translated into crude number. ever. and this comes from someone who does quantitative analyses every day for work!

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    piteglio

    but that's (yet) another interesting idea: rather than sorting forum members on the basis of post/like ratio, what about positioning them on a continuum from ultraconservative to megaliberal?

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    piteglio

    or any two other opposite poles, politically incorrect at will, as long as they wreack havoc on the forum.

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    JimMorr

    If you want more likes you have two ways. The easy way post what people want to hear. The difficult way: post high quality content. Personally I find meme thread best like-farm around ;)

    If the beer thread is still alive maybe it is time to revive it... not going back to music thread: I almost got warning for posting music in it :P

    JimMorr

    As for likes value... creating T9A Magic Flux App (200-300 work hours) gave me 20 likes. A single post in meme-thread gave me also 20 likes. So... I do not really care much. Likes are good indicator that your important posts have been noticed.

    Would an insanly expensive CLUB for a Feral Orc Warlord that would allow him to join a unit of TROLLS be off limits? That would totally rock my boat. And its as inefficient as a feral warlord in a unit of trolls..... so not game breaking .. maybe?
