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.

    Why would they wear a bra to battle?

    Makes just as much sense and a dress looks nicer :)

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Petterwass

    Or a torso wrap, or a breastplate or.... Just anything make more sense that a fetish wire bra

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt

    because that has become almost bog standard attire in modern pop culture for female warriors, and in this case it's a modesty addition, minor attire to keep it SFW. Where as a demon fighting in a dress is completely out of the norm

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Nicreap

    If it needs to be SFW, then the smallest addition that does so without detracting from the piece overall is the best addition, bonuus points for falling under common depictions anyway so it's not even out of the ordinary

    Hide breast behind smoke, hair, weapon if you have to. But I am pretty sure breasts are visible on more then one public monument - so I do not get the 'family friendly project'.

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Nicreap

    it doesn't matter if it's on public monuments, it has been deemed inappropriate for this site, and is even in the terms of use that it is unacceptable

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    JimMorr

    So walking corpses, open wounds, scenes of violence are OK. But raging heroes miniatures are inappropriate...? Wow. Are you sure you are making a wargame for 20-40 years old?

    nakedness is the evil of all things, unless it's behind a paywall (or so it seems on the internet)

    I find the whole thing silly

    I still maintain that Battle-Bras are bloody dumb :)

    agreed (unless it's on Xena .. :D)

    You could at least make it look like a mockery of modesty...

    I really like that picture, I am getting ideas of creating some conversions from Sisters of Slaughter from GW to do a similar looks :). Would look really cool imo

    talking about miniatures, read the latest advent calendar issue! Nice! design your own miniature! I'm going for a blood canon as it doesn't have a decent mini in any range imho

    Horde formation was introduced to make grunt infantry viable by giving them a little bit of damage output, but now the rule has been renamed "line formation" to justify making it a buff for elite damage dealers that are already good. Great…

    The change is not good. But the old rules also were not good. New change....it is easier for high damage units to go into horde formation. So they get a boost. Loosing 2 on passive bonus is not the big deal, when the 8 additional attacks from 3rd rank…
