Fantasy Battles: The 9th Age

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.

    Who else would suffer to gluttony, pride, sloth on pupose? I think the main thing is as it is stated in Circling the Abyss: all beings have desires. They are the doors for the Dark Gods. They pressure them to make them yield to their desires what ends up in the Deadly Sins.

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Lich King

    It's not those beings follow the sins on purpose. Though this is the Dark Gods ultimately aim.

    Anger being sin is like hunger being sin. Maybe it is what priests of Sunna will tell today. It is sinful to complain on empty stomach, it is sinful to get angry at your betters...

    Pray, pay taxes and tithe and you will be rewarded in afterlife

    Anger is inevitable. That doesn't mean you should allow it in excess or let it become your focus.

    "sins becoming your focus". i think this is the best (broadest, most applicable) definition for a cultist.

    What I took from circling the abyss is that you can succumb to damnation under the gods for being sinful

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    kisanis

    you don't have to fail in the pact, or be a supplicant to them and fail. you can be wrathful, prideful, greedy, all of these thigns in service to sunna, or an elven god, or whomever - but your actions and their true origin are known to the 7

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    kisanis

    and so you can argue you do these things for righteous reasons - but Father Chaos will see through, and his children will have you in death. Much like the KoE knight who succombed to pride

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Lich King

    That's exactly my understanding too.

    Still it is not feeling anger that is evil. No more than feeling tired or hungry. It is letui

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    JimMorr

    Arghh mobile

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt

    It is letting those feelings shape your life which can bring you doom.

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Lich King

    No, of course not. But it is not about EoS soldiers gaining hatred by the prayers of the prelates.. It is about what they do because they suffer to hatred

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Eldan

    It's like people here didn't learn anything from the parable of the lion and the red rooster. Just follow your wrath, kill anyone who angers you and the look how happy you will be!

    Do the attribute spell for alchemy trigger if I use it in combination with for example, a dragons breath attack or the dragon staff in melee? Do I get the reroll to wound from flammable? Cheers!

    Thx to everyone for the feedback. To enhance the benefit of it could you guys share your lists? It would help us a lot to see what you are taking, and to understand synergies between units and how well they go together.

    Including a BSB in in a lot of armies rather mandatory. So I would not take the BSB as an example for an on foot charakter that doesn´t buff the unit...he just buffs all units in 12" with Discipline rerolls.

    What I would really like to see is master of destruction (using gw or halberd along with shields) be a overall rule of path of the favoured and exiled units. This could be instead of toxic aegis. That would help with armour issues and grinding.
