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.

We have just released T9A: Quick Starter Edition. Check it out now in the news or on the Rules page!

    Similarly, I've been thinking about - and kinda did a lazy start - on a document that describes T9A from the perspective of WHFB players who stopped after End Times

    Hombre de Mundo

    is that something that's been considered or already exists? I have a friend who is quite stubborn and doesn't want to learn a lot fo rules for a new game. But mechanically T9A is very similar to WHFB

    Basically, I'd like a short document that basically says "if you liked WHFB you'll like T9A, all you need to know is this".

    maybe I should make a more formal suggestion in the thread but just thought I'd throw it out here for some idea tossing.

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt

    We had something like that was, it was basically a list of all the differences .. dunno where that went though ..

    Posted the thread Chariots attacking flanks / rear.

    Hello! Is the restriction for chariots / its mount only attacking to front taken away? Or am I missing the crucial part of the rule book?

    Replied to the thread New base manufacturer.

    Many thanks. I'll go back to him with that list and suggest he starts offering his wares via the manufacturers thread (and starts playing the game of course...)
