Fantasy Battles: The 9th Age

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.

    No, using Paired Weapons in cc means you don't get to use shield for any attacks during cc phas

    "21.G.b.22 Two-Handed A model using a weapon with Two-Handed cannot simultaneously use a Shield against Melee Attacks." page 114, seems like it should work since the spell isnt a melee attack.

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    kisanis

    iirc its a special attack, and therefore you can use the shield

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Lagerlof

    Current rules, you have to use the shield. In 1.3, whichis the version he asked about, I have no idea how it worked :P

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    matrim

    Why do you do this?? In a single phase I can use shield for some attacks and cannot for others... That's really annoying. But sure why not. Not worth crying whabout, let's move on

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt

    Why not just define what Hellfire is?

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Lagerlof

    Because hellfire is not a close combat attack. It’s the same against VS that can shoot into combat

    So... are we having a Legendary rulebook soon, or nay?

    Not while switching from Waterfall to Agile. But when the changes are done... I hope there is a chance...

    the aim is to release 3-4 books per year, yes

    Is something wrong going with ETC? Bolt Action, Infinity events cancelled due to lack of community. X-Wing players decided they prefer a Kraków event played at the same time...

    Hey guys, Sorry to ask another thing but it was a situation that made me think to double check in a game I had yesterday. A unit charges a 6x4 rank unit in the rear but the unit has only one model left in the last rank of the unit. I know you only get…

    I agree most things can be fixed by points. Some though do need a rework. Biggest example is Giant Wrecking Ball. The design is just majorly flawed due to: - BtF has no effect - The Giant's movement is less reliable - The Giant loses out on the other…

    Jolly good show. How did the Berserkers do? with the Hero in there? Some random observation… I would think that going all in on magic would be a way to play for Åsklanders. Their casters are about as good as most casters. They have no real magic

    Quote from DanT: “I thought the IG charged? In which case this spell would make them agility 6? ” yeah.... I dunno, all seems sketchy to me. Some wrong remembering or some fudging of details how the EoS units worked by opponent perhaps?
