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.

    "The oldest reference on Sunna in the background material is dated 59 A.S., the most recent date we find in the background material is 962 A.S."

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Lich King

    Doesn't this mean it's about 900 years ago since Sunna walked Vetia?

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt

    Yes, it does.

    I'm waiting for my mantic giant from their vanguard kickstarter should be shipped now. I'll tell if it's bad or good.

    Lich King

    he looks amazing. and he is what i would call a giant. the GW giant is more likely a large infantry model nowadays xD

    Yeah, it looked good on the campaign photos was cheap and also wasn't a GW product

    A.S. stands for Anno Solis - it is written somewhere in the Rulebook background :)

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Lich King

    No problem. ;)

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    JimMorr

    Could stand out more ;) An introductory line like "Welcome to Lands of Vetia 966 A.S. It is 966 since goddess Sunna descended to land of men bringing new hope and marking beginning of the new Age. Age of Mankind. The 9th Age"

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Karak Norn Clansman

    Aye.

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Ghiznuk

    I always thought A.S. means « After Sunna »

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Ghiznuk

    so what is the current year ?

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    JimMorr

    I am tempted to answer "And what is current year? For each race different and some might deny time passes at all. In our highly realistic setting there are no ultimate evil, good or time." But it would be trolling...

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    JimMorr

    ...I hope.

    Lich King

    The Calendar System wildly used in the the Empire of Sonnstahl is based on that believe and uses "A.S.", which likely stands for "After Sunna"

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Lich King

    From the wiki article about sunna

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    JimMorr

    So 0 A.S. was Sunna descent or Sunna's demise?

    New site is nice but it is very weird that when you click a picture to enlarge it, it doesn't actually get any bigger. It just kinda pops up in a new window in the same size with some useless information next to it. I would like to have that information…
