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.

    If I was supreme overlord of the world, I think I would put the standard game size to 5000. Then look carefully at giving lots of fighting infantry units a points drop. I doubt either of these will happen. They also would potentially be too big changes…

    Quote from Sodder: “And how would you snipe characters with a forsaken one? Catching solo mages standing in the open or ...? ” Hmmm yes, actually that's a good point, you can't target grind attacks so maybe this is a misplay?

    Also, 4 wretched ones vs 1 forsaken one: which is better value? The forsaken one is harder to actually kill, having effectively 9 HP at Res 6 as opposed to 18 effective HP at Res 4, because Res 6 is a real pain, and if you take 6 wounds on your wretched…
