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.

    I will just leave this here. I believe HE without having armour as a strength should not have an option to take an entire army or the overwhelming majority of it with 2+ armour save as that muddles the waters with the armies who actually have armour as…

    To be honest I think the solution is to take the bonus off Sylvan blades in our redesign if it's just gonna drop the stat of units with it. It's worse than pointless both mechanically, emotionally and fluff wise. We'll end up with the same stat for the…

    The idea of a unique Wow!-effect and the "breaking the rule"-concept for each army is indeed very plausible and i also agree this would be a huge boost for the T9A project. Very important to identify with your army and also very important for new…
