What is The 9th Age: Fantasy Battles?

Description: The 9th Age: Fantasy Battles, often simply called The 9th Age or T9A, is a community-made miniatures wargame in which two grand armies clash in an epic battle for power or survival. Each army can be composed of simple foot soldiers, skilled archers, armour-clad knights, powerful wizards, legendary heroes, epic monsters, and huge dragons. The game is usually played on a 72" by 48" battlefield and uses six-sided dice to resolve different actions such as charging into battle, letting arrows loose, or casting spells.

All relevant rules, as well as feedback and suggestions, can be found and given here:
