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.

    Also, Thanos appearing in Winterfell did set up the satisfying twist that Aria had killed him and taken his place. Which didn't change all that much, just that the 50% of people who died mostly consisted of the people on Aria's list

    So, onwards to Game 2 and getting a nice 16 point win saw me climb up the tables, but too high, don’t want to be in nose bleed territory. For this round I was drawn against Daemon Legions again. My opponents list for this round:

    Maw of Akaan: General, Wizard Master (Evocation), Digestive Vomit, Chitinous Scales, Hammerhand, Dextrous Tentacles
    Courtesan of Cibaresh: Wizard Adept (Witchcraft), Kaleidoscopic Flesh, Mesmerising Plumage, Chitinous Scales
    2 x 18 Mymidons: Musician, Whipcrack Tail
    12 Succubi: Chilling Yawn
    2 x 5 Hellhounds: Incendiary Ichor
    2 Mageblight Gremlins
    3 Brazen Beasts: Whipcrack Tail
    6 Bloat Flies: Champion, Broodmother, Digestive Vomit

    So slightly different to the last army I fought. The Maw scares the bejesus out of me, what an absolute tank and he grows wounds back beyond it’s starting value! I love that if he gets to 18 wounds he pops! What I wouldn’t give for a big unit of zombies to feed to him. I don’t plan on going anywhere near him until I’ve taken out everything else.
    The Courtesan seems like an easier target for me to tackle so I’m tempted to try and bring that thing down. I’m always happy to see points spent I things I don’t care about, Hard Target (2) and I have no shooting, if it’s going to die it is going to die the good old fashioned way.

    Two different magic lores to the last Daemons too, Evocation and Withcraft, quite light on the damage spells but those buffs and hexes could really prove problematic when it comes to the crunch.

    There’s the obligatory Bloat Flies which I have the same basic plan for them that I had last game, shoot with magic, throw Feldraks at them and don’t forget about hatred against fliers this time. Mymidons are different but with only 1 attack I’m not too worried about them, it’s just core tax, what could they possibly do to me?!

    Deployment this time is Counterthrust and the secondary objective is Capture the Flags, I like to think I stand a good chance with this objective as I have 3 pretty tough units to crack so I’m hoping I can retain two of them at least whilst killing my opponents.

    We do spells first and I opt for the same manifestations as the last game on my Exalted Herald as it worked pretty well last time. So Abiding Spirit, mostly for Smite the Unbeliever and a chance to get wounds back, and Brand of the Dragon so I can fly and get Breath of Corruption. I also take Hellfire as my third spell, hopefully I can cast it this game after getting shut down trying to cast every time in the last game.

    My opponent goes for Deceptive Glamour (-1/2 off OS, DS and Agi) and the Spear of Infinity (Strength 5 Penetrating hit) on the Courtesan of Cibaresh. For the Maw of Akaan they pick Ancestral Aid (Reroll to hit), Whispers of the Veil (-1 Res and -1 Dis), Hasten the Hour (3 x 1 S10 hit) and Spectral Blades (Reroll to wound). Some good combat buffs there and I really hate Hasten the Hour, it will just slowly kill my Lord if I don’t dispel it, if I do dispel it then he is going to be buffing his units instead.

    We deploy as shown below. As my opponent has gone heavy on the right I’m hoping to push the left flank, smash the flies and envelop him.

    My opponent dropped it all before me and gets first turn, so off we go.

    Hi mate, bugger to take a loss like you did.
