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.

    That's antarctic-themed, not arctic. Also, I encourage everyone to use giant blind albino cave penguins from the nighted, penguin-fringed abyss.

    touché, Eldan! Indeed, there are no penguins in the North pole. But is it the same for T9A? :D

    maybe even penguinbears?

    Is this the polar equivalent of owlbears?

    yes but they can stay under water for prolonged time too :p

    Why this started to remind me Age of Wonders series which has killer penguins squads with lifestealing (vampiric like) properties?

    Look, if the don't fringe some kind of nighted abyss, I dont' care.

    Does anyone know where to get plastic GW style 50x100 and 60x100 bases? Nothing fancy, just plastic

    You could also get some plasticard or even PVC sheets in your local DIY, cut or saw them to the correct size and then sand the edges in an angle. That's how i do it often ;)

    No, I still totally agree with you on that, I am just defending the point that there is no reason to bring even the existence of WHFB into this discussion. Otherwise we are on the same page, even a peashooter on a chariot is fine :D

    You mean: using a 3rd party not being subject to bank regulations to handle your money is safer than using insured credit card..?
