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.

    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
    Nicreap

    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

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    JimMorr

    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)

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Ney

    I find the whole thing silly

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Petterwass

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

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Ney

    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

    Just wanted to say that I finally got my Engineers in the mail. So if anyone wants to buy one, send me a PM :) DSC_0052.jpg (Test models, badly painted by me) No real idea what to sell them for though, 5 Euro a pop maybe? Plus shipping.

    I really like the new formation as 10 wide before was very wide. Making it only 8 wide does help the units mobility a little but as well especially for armies that are prone to take multiple hordes. Me being a warriors player, this really makes me happy…
