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.

    yeah... I thought so too but I figured it must be a mistake. I never even considered the knight using a ranged weapon, let a alone being called “honor” to improve him with it

    Couldn't agree more. I might add that in the game, they win most combats, like they used to do in 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th ed, and 9th age v1 and v1.1..........

    Play EOS or HBE, 9th age doesn't have intentions to make WDG and army with sinergies or even good infantry army (point/effectiveness wise, they are good on their own but the game doesn't encourage this playstyle)
