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.

    This was a tough one. A savage one. Elves versus Elves in a grinding battle until the very last turn. Will the nobles ones prevail over their dark cousins? Or will the sacrifical pyres for Nabh enlighten the night?

    SH, my mentor, my favourite enemy, general extraordinaire and contemplator of the most surprising lists is my enemy this time:

    In my ongoing effort of giving money to starving artists, I've once again commissioned art of one of my generals.

    Art by Shane Mercer, goes by the moniker littleliongod on Tumblr

    This is Duke Robert Roquerre, wielder of the Dragon Lance and jouster extraordinaire and well as owner of a magnificent Mustache!

    The first and most useless of my Dukes. In the three games....
    In The first one he brutally murdered a Flame Warden champion before being chased off. He was later charged by a Lion Chariot (which he admittedly beat up).
    In the second he never got into combat.
    In the third he roaster three Reavers before being charged by s bunch of Lancers and a Eagle and run down.

    Love the guy but he just doesn't do that much for me.

    As for the Duke himself, he's quite interesting. A knight of the old school, he keeps himself to a very high standard despite his age and his knights to one almost as high.
    And he is always ready to prosecute any injustice done be the lower nobles in his duchy against even the peasantry, at the point of a Lance, if need be.
    He's very much the honourable bull in a China shop.
    Knowing that he couldn't get away with this approach for too long until someone smarter and a better schemer than him (a list of which includes most of the populace of Equitaine, including some of the horses!) would eventually out-manoeuvre him intl either death or worse, dishonour. Knowing this, Duke Roquerre set about to find an ally to compliment his strengths and shore up hid failings.
    He found Duchess Lovisa and found a solution to not only this problem, but the issue of an heir and got himself a life-parter than was even willing to indulge in his... Less than acceptable behaviour sometimes.

    Both of them being about as straight as a rainbow, he and Lovisa love each other dearly in just about every way but the physical, using their wedding bed only to produce a decent number of heirs before finding lovers of their own.

    Duke Roquerre had drunk of the sacred Grail and moves like a man less than half his age and has no problem unhorsing one either. He is the Lance that Lovisa wields, the brawn to her brain and they make a formidable team, defending their shared realm against elven raiders on multiple occasions.
    Duke Roquerre's Arms are those of the Swedish Special forces, whose motto of "Forward Through the Night" he also shares; perceiving Equitaine as having fallen into a deep dark night of corruption and dishonourable behaviour, he hopes to lift it into the light through personal example and ruthless pruning of those that do not live up to his standard [Read More]

    but if I am trying to shoot down enemy warmachines that are on a hill with BS shooting I get a minus 1? I also dont understand the second part: A unit completely off a Hill counts the Hill as Hard Terrain. What does that mean?
