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.

    I like it however my pet hate corner huggers might be advantaged. even if I have 4 units ambushing my corner hugger can plan for it and will have 2 turn to shoot. yeah I know use terrain etc. But I'd still recommend allowing ambusher to arrive wherever…

    Basically that. Volley fire, catapults and cannons on top of chariots will have a slight advantage. if they deployed deep and had some chaff it'll give them reasonable time. As you have eluded it is a narrow field so chaff can delay more (2 units at…
