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.

    Empire Reiters.

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt

    Ups, Empire Reiters (with Brace of Pistol) - If they march, do they then get -1 to hit?

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt

    quick to fire, so no

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt

    I thought Quick to fire only was when you moved and not marched. Am I missing sometinhg?

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt

    they can march and shoot due to light troops

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt

    marching is a type of movement.

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt

    the less fast movement is called 'advance'. Both are 'moving'

    I disagree they need mobility. IMO that goes the wrong direction particularly if they can double as chaff. Special deployments I do agree would mitigate part of their problem. For example maybe we should be able to access a special version of scout
