Fantasy Battles: The 9th Age

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.

    There is something called carpentry plates? A good carpenter won't ever use such blasphemic tools. I was teached to use hidden connections within furnitures

    Very much so.

    But IKEA pieces are often structurally unsound. Quickfix involve the kind of large carpentry plates used for fastening together beams.

    Which looks out of place on flimsy furniture, but is sturdy.

    Carpentry plates, or whatever they're called in English, are for building houses, by the way. Overdimensioned for furniture.

    piteglio

    create map, click on pink tree, then save, then load it when needed.

    or you can look for others' maps: load, magnifying glass, explore a bit

    The carpenty plate cost more. Both furniture pieces were excess giveaways from a friend and from my mother.

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Karak Norn Clansman

    L-shaped plates will be useful inside the furniture

    Need runes, though!

    Gonna use this a lot more for IKEA pieces. Good thing for inheriting sturdy old handmade durniture that's stayed strong for 50 years and will stay strong for 70 more at thhe very lesast.

    Not saying it makes it easy but not everyone takes a master and two adepts..... if you played me with a sub par army youd probably still win. At the end of the day, i always lose to better players and always beat worse players
