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.

    I'm so glad you guys are Baldur's Gates fans! This is such an awesome series. I never found RPGs that influenced me that much.

    Ah baldurs gate - where the first thing I do is kill a guard in the very first inn to get his half plate early in the game - consquences be damned!

    Sounds about right. I've played TT D+D campaigns where 'kill the plot important NPCs' was a recurring theme

    I also messed up a Night Below campaign by being the only character to survive the whole thing, but as a Priest of Chaos, I'd been calling the plot NPCs weird things,

    so by the time we found "Jelinith" that "Towster" had sent us to look for, no one knew them as anything other than Gelatin and Toaster, and no one knew we'd completed our objective

    Yeah being able to craft your own items would also be rather fluffy, albeit a sweet combo will become the norm (just like dwarf characters now, you know what a king on Throne or DS packs without reading the army list) :/

    I had heard that was the official stance, either way I felt it worth mentioning here. It's a shame the combo is going away it led to some interesting new OK builds I thought.

    From what I've read, Avras didn't worship Sunna, though. They had older gods. The tribes that make up Sonnstahl are a lot more Germanic.
