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.

    Some fluff would be awesome, otherwise I probably wouldn't invest. I love the world map idea. Would also be great for the hobby, to have fluff in a real, kinda official book rather than on wikis etc. Flux cards for copy as a stretch goal sound good. …

    I have actually proposed ruling which would still allow to chaff quite effectively while reducing a bit efficiency of corner parked single model units. It would also add the possibility of rare cinematic event in the game. The rule would be as…

    Quote from Warboss_R'ok: “Perhaps it needs to be phrased to get around the light troops issue: "if the unit has a full rank (or would have a full rank except for being light troops), then ... " ” That would work, and it's a clunky exception to the…

    Re: d10 relation to HBE @Archeron I think a d10 system will make the 'soft stats' much more relevant. At the moment the hard stats St, res, as trump any soft stat. Moving to d10 will further add to the splitting WS. Also you can make hbe as 6+ or 7+…

    Thanks for clarifying Gladis. I'm against this decision but I respect the adamant resolve in enforcing this policy. I just hope we won't need to wait another 14 years for all FABs.
