This thread will contain announcements for Ninth Age (https://www.the-ninth-age.com/) contests of various kinds.

For those wondering what T9A is, it's Warhammer Fantasy's community-driven spiritual successor, or a Warhammer clone if you like that better: Call it what one like, but the end result is that WHFB's beloved and artistically succesful model of a historically based fantasy smörgåsbord lives on in an actively developed setting. For those looking closer, there will be many new additions and nuance differences, such as a thoroughly developed fantasy Africa - Taphria (https://www.the-ninth-age.com/index.php?thread/30323-it-s-time-for-africa%C2%A0/) - where Warhammer's Southlands was lacklustre compared to other parts; and a Constantinopolitan crossroads city where Byzantine ratmen ruled until recently. Expect it to grow and improve. A lot!

You can take part in this development and help inform its creators with your art and your stories.


Today, the Ninth Age Team reveal its first Art Contest, pitting Warriors of the Dark Gods against others. Itching for some drawing or painting? Have some ideas to sketch out? Got an epic visual in your head to get down on paper? Then now is a good opportunity to let loose your inner artist!

Check it out, there are a slew miniature prizes up for grabs, including a random give-away:

Art Contest I (https://www.the-ninth-age.com/index.php?thread/39015-art-contest-i/)

This is your chance to have your fantasy artwork show up in official publications!

Expect more of the same to come if this catch on, and who knows if modelling/painting and even writing competitions could lie around the corner?

Awesome rewards KNC, thanks.

I need to get a sketch block anyhow. I tried digital, the learning curve is too time intense for me right now. I have not really made a drawing since my school days. :D
