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.

    Shieldbreaker, what the feck does ", and can never wound on to-wound rolls better than 3+" mean?

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt

    I've thought about it probably too much, and got all twisted around in my head

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt

    that even if you have Str 8 and your opponent has Res 2, you still wound on 3+, not the usual 2+

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt

    (that's how i read it, at least)

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt

    You can never wound better than on 3+, not even through spells.

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt

    or other special affects/abilities/w/e

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt

    Cheers guys. I thought it could mean that if the Str/Res difference meant I was rolling on a 2+ that I just couldn't wound them at all

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt

    Ha! I see what happened there but it wouldn't make any sense this way

    IMHO the whole synergy and character support aspect is already better than it was - in the new book the "Dominion" doesn't require the buff-giver to be in combat directly, and also units have gained aspect options without a need for a harbinger. Maybe an…

    It’s flashy and perfect as it is - a real eye catcher in my opinion. Watering down the contrasts will only result in a big loss in effect for the average viewing distance (which is more than 1 meter away).

    yeah I think this could be a viable build. Maybe with additional limbs though because magic likes movement. Maybe I'll try this!
