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.

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

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

    they can march and shoot due to light troops

    Squirrelloid

    marching is a type of movement.

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

    Has anyone done an analysis of BRB item usage across all of the ETC lists? I would love to have a look at that if anyone has done it, I think it would be an interesting data point to look at.

    I think this weapon is balanced and well costed. The point is that the list of common magic items is now full of really non useful stuff, limitations and really situational items ("only on foot", "only standard size", "only if your character has one leg…

    Quote from DanT: “So, increase points of heros heart, decrease points of everything else or both? ” HH is arguably too expensive already. It's supposed to be a budget hero-level item. I'd honestly fix it at no more than 50 points, and price the…
