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.

    I mean when you post something, links are all red/dead. But when you enter wiki manually it works. Is it "Lexicon" then?

    Wielder = Model Part?

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt

    @JimMorr - "Special Equipment often refer to their wielder, wearer or bearer. These terms mean the same thing and refer to the model part the Special Equipment was bought for, excluding its mount."

    Would this be true for the obsidian rock as well? So a barb chief on unbroken chimera wouldn’t actually get MR2 if he had an Obsidian Rock?

    Magic Resist is an Universal rule, so if one model part has this rules, whole model is affected.

    Well you know about it beforehand, you need to deploy to anticipate them. Plus the ambushers have to start rolling for it immediatlly, so they will be very detached from their main lines most of the time.
