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 stopped using battlescribe when after a long search for why my list was so damn small I found it had charged 1000 pts for a champion for skeleton warriors.... that was the day I switched to army builder

    The day I can do Army list arithmetic plus the variable % caps kill me I’ve reached nirvana!

    %s in multiples of 5 are easy xP

    No, but dividing by 10 is easy, as is dividing by 2.

    But really, even being able to do arithmetic on arbitrary numbers in your head isn't 'smart', that just makes you a trained monkey.

    (arbitrary large numbers that is - the people who demonstrate speed multiplication of 5 digit numbers aren't necessarily intelligent, it's basically a show trick)

    I just wanted to make a list for my first tournanent and make sure it is legal... But seems battlescribe is not tool for that

    One completely unrelated question: had JRR Tolkien first designed all languages of Middle Earth and only then he wrote Lord of the Rings?

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Eldan

    Well, I don't think he ever finished the languages as such. But he definitely had a lot of the languages and even parts of what later became the Silmarillion done long before he started on LotR. Hobbit and LotR were not even intended to be in the same world, at first.

    Eldan

    And he only really invented Quenya and Sindarin. Westron has a lot of old-fashioned anglo-saxon in it and Khuzdul has only a handful of words and two sentences, as far as I know.

    thanks @tiny. The invention of languages is the foundation. The 'stories' were made rather to provide a world for the languages than the reverse. Do we follow that path? You know this approach took genius and philologist 60 years...

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Eldan

    Don't follow that path. 1) You probably don't have any philology professors on staff 2) It's not really necessary.

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Eldan

    You can write a compelling and deep world with a complex history without ever mentioning a world in a non-English language.
