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.

    Hey! A while ago I found a tool where you could make a card which detailed a units rule with the new format, and even choose a background for it. Anyone knows what I'm talking about?

    I have a question about "Stomp" rule. Could anyone tell me - what models can be stomped?

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Happy Aspid

    It says standard units can be stomped. Does this means that for example doomlord (large, infantry) can stomp chosen lord on black steed (standard, cavalry)?

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Scylla

    @Happy Aspid: No. See page 67 of the rulebook: cavalry models have the rule Cannot be Stomped. "For the purposes of Stomp Attacks from enemy model, a model with Cannot be Stomped is never considered of Standard Size."

    I can pretty safely say that the feral orc chiefs on boards are chaff. And darn good ones at that!with the whole game losing ward saves across the board, the 3+ 5++ cowboys are REALLY good for their price

    Actually I am more concerned about using the word "Pygmies" in some of our Taphrian factions. We're not using the word Dogon or Zulu, are we? Pygmies are actual human beings. We should not use their name to describe some tribes we contemplatefor T9A.…
