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.

    Uargh the good old "just chaff frenzy" argument. I am also a top player ranking between 11-20 in Germany. . Hellfist makes this model more OP because it can move way more freely. Like I said before the model alone is not a problem as you can chaff

    Shamanism IME is really good. Totemic Beast is just this huge spanner in the works, +1 S is a contender for the best buff spell in the game (which, in my opinion, is really sad - I remember Wyssan's Wildform) and the only real dud is is Chilling…

    Only way I'll play occultism is Yema Acolytes. Too many bad spells if you have to actually roll for them. The problem isn't pyromancy. It's that every other lore needs to be where pyromancy is. Too many lores are so utterly useless or inconsequential…

    Funny to see that this thread was silent for some time. I hope that all magical items from the rulebook go away and we only have army specific items left. This would make the Helm balanced. Back to the chaos Lust hero. Öhm in Germany the chaos lust …
