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.

    Actually architects in NL nearly lost the Science title roughly 15 years ago, as the master didn't contain any science (match, staticss)

    I remember doing the calculation exam without a calculator...fun afternoon that was.

    :D :D :D I don't need to tell you, you're not allowed to use a calculator in your whole math studies at all, do I? Speaking from my personal experience! :P

    a calculator doesn't even help with realmath

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Lich King

    Depends on the calculator! :D But indeed we had to solve some tough trigonometrical terms for very unusual values. All calculated by pure brain power! :D

    But you're absolutely right, 90 % of the time we're just proving some theses. :P

    aw man, trigonometry comes very handy when you have to program Tabletop Simulator to make your unit do a 1" wheeling with a one press button, indipendent of unit frontage. cos yes, a T9A 3D videogame is coming...

    The ideal situation with that rule is charging peasants and knights at the same time with knights in the flank/rear. Good luck with that hah. But, however, it does offer us a chance when the knights finally do make it into combat with those units. All…

    Oath of fealty is great for panic tests and occasionally break tests, but if you’re using cavalry to it’s full potential on the table they’ll likely be farther than 6” away from them, especially if you’re trying hard to position for those flank charges
