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.

    You know something else I just thought of. We should totally be able to use pack tactics on pursuit moves. I mean ... what is more beast herdy than running down a fleeing foe and feasting on him.

    Ok thanks. Well I guess/hope it will be fixed in an up-coming update because for me this is rather unecessary. Without GW they are useless in combat, but without guild-crafted guns they are unefficient from afar...

    reverting irrelevant rules generated by unexistant circumstances should never be considered as redesign (slot) but simple fix to revert unnecesary changes.

    No it is not. This restriction comes from a time when the guild crafted handguns had +1 to hit. (that is a lot more powerful) Back then, you just saw them in the lists and no other marksman. The current restrictions were never taken away. And they were…
