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.

    Stupid clouds diffused the light. Even at full eclipse it just looked like a slightly dim (yet still full) sun to me.

    This is old news I'm afraid. Quite recently we've managed to recruit another digital graphics specialist (hi @Crafty ) and suddenly I've got nothing to do - at least until WDG and DL aren't a bit further down the road. But at least my job is sustainable…

    C'mon Raf, this hobby has so many dimensions that is hard to follow every single one of them with the same pace. The fact thàt I don't care much about BG doesn't really mean anything. As long as the rules I try to make have a strong thematic basis, my…
