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.

    @Eldan - there are like 3-4 rule sets for 'football' native to the British Isles, including Rugby as well as soccer. And the US plays soccer. The technical name is asSOCiation Football. As opposed to Rugby football or Gaelic football or American Football.

    Soccer comes from abbreviating 'association'

    @Eldan the point of that was the name "soccer" comes from Britain even though its associated with americans.

    I get really annoyed with my IBS sometimes too. Often when I play soccer but also when I play stationary games like go-karting or air-pogo.

    Quote from Squirrelloid: “How much would it really change the game? ” people would take units of 10 fast cavalry and march 18-20'', then go into a 20'' long conga line, which would give them an effective chaff range of 28''-30''.

    question regarding the Secondary mission spoils of war. Second paragraph,last sentence states the marker may be placed inside a unit. Does this unit count as picking it up (if able) or is it ment to be placed Under a units footprint onto the battlefield?
