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.

    As for likes value... creating T9A Magic Flux App (200-300 work hours) gave me 20 likes. A single post in meme-thread gave me also 20 likes. So... I do not really care much. Likes are good indicator that your important posts have been noticed.

    Wow, working for IT company I am used to the fact that if there is no flow of negative feedback, crash reports and changes demands than no one even launches the system... ;)

    I use the app as much as I could. Even if my opponent draws cards etc. I just draw one for them. The only issue is the practicality of the reporting. I wonder if there's an easier way.

    I probably overreached with that one. Wanted to collect not only battle results but also unused units and things like scenario VP - who goes first - scenario type

    One thing I think would be cool is some thing like: Noble Sacrifice - prohibitively expensive - general only When defeated in a duel with an enemy model, noble sacrifice is triggered. With its final breath this model lands a crushing blow. S8 mwd3 +1

    @DanT (A) Are you prepared to sacrifice more generally useful items? Even the ones you like? No, and I do not think this is the right approach to go about and create more flavorful options. Lets take O&G as an example, as it's one of the few armies

    I think you acidentally misinterpreted the call for more cinematic (what a great word) items as strictly unreliable and costly by nature. The call was to have more items that have less blend effects, are tied too the armies character and/or background…
