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.

    This is great news in the US. The feedback we get is many people are STILL on the fence because they want to play the game and not have to make new rule books, print new magic cards and buy and paint new units every few months because something changed…

    Posted the thread Pursuit off table... Victory Points awarded?.

    If a unit kills an enemy unit and then Overruns (or Pursues a broken enemy) off the table edge on Turn 6, are they counted as destroyed (so Victory Points for that victorious unit are awarded to the opposing player)? Eg, It is the SA player's turn 6.…

    Is everyone really happy with breath weapons being once a game? More over, are we happy that it gives a dragon rider +2d6 extra hits in combat once a game, essentially giving him an autobreak on most targets? As an alternative, can we think about…

    Really good idea and IMO not overpowered. Against heavy enemies you choose to stomp. And against light enemies and enemies you can't stomp, you have the breath weapon. And fliers with a breath weapon should be able to use that as sweeping attack. This…
