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.

    They are very good as a back-up spells. For example, if I play alchemy my opponent gets to choose between 5++ or +2 ARM, reroll to wound prayer or flaming prayer+ reroll to wound attribute or glory of gold + alch attribute. It´s a guarantee that you get…

    This is what I wrote for BLT way back when. Having used the seed of the dark forest in an event (and played a fair bit with EoS arcane engines), I am even more convinced that 4&8 are the correct power levels for bound spells in general. Quote from DanT:…

    Guys, previously it was 2d6, so 7 on average, but enemy usually had +3 bonus to dispel. So it was PL4 on average anyway. Thats why you get this value now. It didn't change dramatically.

    OotFH on YD - held it's points well. The magic nearly netted a Scourge kill but couldn't finish the job. Nearly won the DE game with last turn spells. Lack of damage output meant it struggled to finish off 5 slaughterers and later, 6 horrors in combat.…
