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.

    @JimMorr - "Special Equipment often refer to their wielder, wearer or bearer. These terms mean the same thing and refer to the model part the Special Equipment was bought for, excluding its mount."

    Would this be true for the obsidian rock as well? So a barb chief on unbroken chimera wouldn’t actually get MR2 if he had an Obsidian Rock?

    Magic Resist is an Universal rule, so if one model part has this rules, whole model is affected.

    I’ve only found utility in KG units as cheap 15 man hammers. In big blocks they aren’t survivable enough and the investment is too steep.

    @ilovepeanut My advice would be to try and play the same list to see how it fares in a different game. Although, I'll admit I seldom take this advice myself and change lists constantly :P

    One of my biggest concerns for our developing book, and for the other 15 armies that will receive the same treatment in turn, is the lack of responsibility taken for the state it was released to us in. I don't even mean point costs or under-developed…

    I don’t disagree with your hypothesis, but I take issue with the methodology. Comparing points costs of Wizards across army books is misleading because it ignores the context of the army and any synergies that may result. As an easy example, Alchemy
