Fantasy Battles: The 9th Age

This site uses cookies. By continuing to browse this site, you are agreeing to our Cookie Policy.

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.

    The Goblin Mascot Naming Contest is open!

    While it is goblin mascot? Shouldn't we start with a poll what type of mascot we want? Or at least propose something more multiracial? Like deamon-possessed mummy of ogrilion (Half blood ogre, half blood troll)?

    As there is already fitting artwork and some good ideas behind it I would not recommand to change this. Furthermore a Goblin seems to fit quite well as it is some of the most iconical stereotype of a fantasy figure.

    just teasing... as the mascot seems to got lost somewhere...
