Fantasy Battles: The 9th Age

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.

    They can be the big big big big longshot stretch goals :) Hey, they encourage others to buy in and increase their pledges to make it happen! But I get the point - in all realism, they would likely each warrant their own smaller campaign. I do think…

    Let them at 1D6+1 like it is at the moment... And give them an erupt special moves that replaces the normal attack and does 1D6+1 toxic for the front rank only ? (no attack for the rear one). Something like a27a0d5fbc5e4806de2dc76ef9f22b40.gif
