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.

    Replied to the thread Sylvan Elves 2.0 BETA Armybook.

    The other thing about those deathstars: neither of those armies has an AWSW playstyle of deathstar. So even if they can make them now, unless AWSW gets watered down to being inconsequential, they won’t be able to make them later when they get their FAB.

    @echoctrl was wrong Special Deployment is not ' not existant ' but 'weakness' KoE may have Special Deployment on some units, but may be able to deploy only a limited number of units with Vanguard-scout and similar.
