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.

    My Centaur is in base combat and using Paired Weapons, can he still use his Shield on Armour Save on the hits from Hellfire? I mean it's not aattack from the unit?

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt

    No, using Paired Weapons in cc means you don't get to use shield for any attacks during cc phas

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt


  • wcf.user.avatar.alt

    "21.G.b.22 Two-Handed A model using a weapon with Two-Handed cannot simultaneously use a Shield against Melee Attacks." page 114, seems like it should work since the spell isnt a melee attack.

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt

    iirc its a special attack, and therefore you can use the shield

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt

    Current rules, you have to use the shield. In 1.3, whichis the version he asked about, I have no idea how it worked :P

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt

    Why do you do this?? In a single phase I can use shield for some attacks and cannot for others... That's really annoying. But sure why not. Not worth crying whabout, let's move on

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt

    Why not just define what Hellfire is?

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt

    Because hellfire is not a close combat attack. It’s the same against VS that can shoot into combat

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt

    So... are we having a Legendary rulebook soon, or nay?

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt

    The road is dark and full of terrors, but we're making progress ;)

    In case you were woundering: Our service provider had some hickups today.

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt

    4 bookd a year? Too optimistic

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt


  • wcf.user.avatar.alt

    Not while switching from Waterfall to Agile. But when the changes are done... I hope there is a chance...

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt

    the aim is to release 3-4 books per year, yes

    Best of luck. I hope the bottlenecks can be overcome.

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt

    You can pay your musical respect to Dutchies during the coming events

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt

    Beer will do.
