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.

    I could probably write a script that extracts that data from the userbase and calculates a ratio...

    Yeah but your ultra conservative base artificially inflates your numbers with echo chamber post liking. I have mass appeal but occasionally miss the mark.

    omarcomin's appeal cannot be translated into crude number. ever. and this comes from someone who does quantitative analyses every day for work!

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    piteglio

    but that's (yet) another interesting idea: rather than sorting forum members on the basis of post/like ratio, what about positioning them on a continuum from ultraconservative to megaliberal?

    or any two other opposite poles, politically incorrect at will, as long as they wreack havoc on the forum.

    If you want more likes you have two ways. The easy way post what people want to hear. The difficult way: post high quality content. Personally I find meme thread best like-farm around ;)

    As for likes value... creating T9A Magic Flux App (200-300 work hours) gave me 20 likes. A single post in meme-thread gave me also 20 likes. So... I do not really care much. Likes are good indicator that your important posts have been noticed.

    Nevermind @JimMorr. Your Magic Flux App is great and anybody in my wargaming club is using it regularly.

    Nice to hear that. I am glad someone finds it useful ;)

    Man, used it several times! And will do so everytime I forget them cards

    Wow, working for IT company I am used to the fact that if there is no flow of negative feedback, crash reports and changes demands than no one even launches the system... ;)

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    matrim

    I use the app as much as I could. Even if my opponent draws cards etc. I just draw one for them. The only issue is the practicality of the reporting. I wonder if there's an easier way.

    I probably overreached with that one. Wanted to collect not only battle results but also unused units and things like scenario VP - who goes first - scenario type

    A suggestion, as theese will replace crushers with deemons on them which have an okey armour save? Might just swap the heads from the stormcasts with demons, so it will be armour clad demons? Otherwise converted ogres might be nice as well :)

    I have no problems with Grudge-buster in terms of melee potential. I only stated that for 350 we have better alternatives. If it were at least 300-320 It would be much easier for me to consider fielding one. In all my games Buster usualy was killed by
