    Hey guys,

    A little bit of backgroun for the question: As some of you may know, I started my miniature adventure about two months ago, when I started reading the rules for 8th edition Fantasy. Unfortunately, I have yet to make it to an actual game, and so was excited that this weekend there is a noob-friendly tournament. However, the tournament is 9th Age rather than actual WHFB, and I'm not sure how well prepared I am for that, with my current knowledge of 8th edition rules. I don't have to win, I just want to play and not be a hindrance to the rest of the tournament.

    My main question is: are the editions are significantly different in their rules? If they are, what are the main areas in which they are different? I don't expect anyone to give a comprehensive list of everything that is different, but any guidance as to what I should focus on would be much appreciated! I won't have time to read the entire 9th Age rules before this weekend, but if the versions are mainly different in a few key areas, maybe I could read enough to be able to participate. If someone does have a comprehensive list of differences, or a summary, I'd happily accept those!

    Thanks in advance for any help, and as always, feel free to move the post if it's in the wrong forum!

    My initial impression...
    Well for one, they changes the names of Everything (for legal reasons).
    And there seem like there are is a lot of heavy handed army and rules balancing.
    Beyond that I'm not sure.

    This video is from a couple of months back so doesn't take into account the major changes that T9A just underwent (ver. 1.2?), but it might give you a starting point. That said, I'd imagine that you'll definitely have to at least read over the T9A rules to adequately participate in the tournament.



    Hope that helps :cool:
