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.

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt

    You give her the name of the room you just created, and the password you chose

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt

    Okay I mean there is the message "invite friends to play with you" but I guess that's just for well.. invite however you please kinda thing :D

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt

    hello, i have still the problem with UB2 to load game data. do sombody know how to fix it? thx

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt

    A little work in progress on my Ashigaru Archers. I am getting faster in painting those, but these models are harder to paint than the Tanegashima. There are many deep "tunnels" because their tunics are so loose.

    Replied to the thread Building a Gran Khan!.

    I wouldn't be overly concerned. I think the khan kills his opponent faster with 6s5 attacks than his opponent kills him. Also considering he has 5 wounds. If you really want him more defensive, I would really advice for lygurs instead of a ward. Lygurs…
