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.

    Did anyone ever look at the rulebook and realize that almost all of it is in the wrong order? Who chose in which order to put those chapters? Because it doesn't make a bit of sense to me.

    Nope However 12.D.e Units consisting of a single model follow the rules for Moving Units stated above. In addition, they can perform any number of Pivots during Advance Moves and March Moves.

    The usual way to work of the 9th age balance team, If the only one avalaible slot for stank is a must have choice, so increase the point cost... Meanwhile 2 hidras +kraken +3 cold one chariots remains in play... Very fair.
