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.

    Agreed. Perhaps I'll learn my lesson one day. My playstyle is serving me pretty well so far. Until those times when I come up against an msu avoidance Empire List - then I just hand over the 20-0 and get a beer.

    shooting in a close combat list is indeed not about zoning you have to kill or weaken more guys then the opponent so he has to come at you or at least kill the important target. But I have found that my mixed arms list with witchcraft had to rush anyway…

    I have found for myself that shooting paired with combat is quite viable. I think the biggest problem people is people do not have a clear idea of what they need/expect out of each part of their list. If you’re expecting 20 Aux to put down any decent…

    Replied to the thread Åsklanders - All entries + common enchantments.

    I dont think the 0-3 restriction on the Åsklander special units is any cool with so few Åsklander units to choose from, but still a fresh take on a themed army.

    Replied to the thread Spoilers for 2.05 in the Empire of Sonnstahl.

    I‘d say the maximum points which can lie in a deathstar are around 2k. So if you manage to avoid that deathstar and get the scenario you can still be 2,5k points ahead. To be realistic let‘s say 1,5k because you need to sacrifice stuff to the deathstar.…

    even though it's a benefit, I feel like the huskarls lost some flavor with the addition of round shields for them and barbarians. Still love me some Asklanders though.

    Replied to the thread Åsklanders - All entries + common enchantments.

    To me giving åskland warriors access to round shield was a matter of consistency from 'historical' point of view. Shieldwall was common practice during dark ages I believe so it is reasonable to have it for common troops too. As it isn't mandatory for…
