The 9th Age "Burning Banners" Coverage






Parhaaksi armeijaksi valitsimme
Vilhelm Metsalon vaivalla konvertoidun
ja maalatun Warriors of Chaos -armeijan,
jonka eheä ja tunnelmallinen Nurgle-teema
jatkuu läpi monipuolisen yksikkövalikoiman.
War Head Fight Clubin turnaustoiminta ei tauonnut pääsiäisenäkään, vaan päästimme Old Worldin uljaat armeijat ja kummalliset olennot irti rennossa The 9th Age Fantasy Battles -turnauksessa! Tällä kertaa sotakentillä pärjäsivät parhaiten Olli Mikkasen kipparoimat Ogret, jotka möyhensivät tieltään Ville Oinion pippuriset Kääpiöt, Olli Katilan viekkaat Savage Orcit ja lopulta Vilhelm Metsalon upean ratsuväkiteemaisen Mortal Chaos -armeijan. Parhaiten menestyneitä kenraaleita palkittiin monivaiheisen pelipäivän päätteeksi tuotepalkinnoilla ja vapaalipuilla ensi viikonlopun Model Expo -pienoismallitapahtumaan, jossa myös War Head on tänä vuonna näytteilleasettajana! Kiitokset jälleen kaikille pelaajille ja tsemppiä kevään maalaussessioihin!

The 9th Age on ilmaiseksi jaossa oleva, faniyhteisökehitteinen sääntöjärjestelmä ja päivitetty sekä tasapainotettu versio Warhammerin kahdeksannesta laitoksesta. Vuosia kehitystyön alla ollut "ysiedikka" on nyt viimein jäädytetty hetkeksi pitkäkestoisempaa yksikkötestausta ja turnauspelaamista silmälläpitäen - samalla T9A-tekijätiimi keskittynee viilaamaan esimerkiksi armeijakirjojensa kuvitusta ja fluffiosuuksia. Peli on ehkä paremmin balanssissa kuin koskaan ja neliöbeissien sekä rykmenttimuodostelmien perintö elää!
