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 think I am exactly the target of the kickstarter as currently presented :D I've been following T9A for a while, so I don't want third-party background or rules. I have one somewhat complete FBT9A army but would love to dip my toe into other factions, and…

    I do not think that rules and fluff are a product needed to develop as such. It helps to sell a box if it comes with a game, I see no reason why you can't use T9A QS for just that purpose. The drawback is that you do not have creative control, the…

    Ya, they also can hide in units as well. There is something to be said for a GD that doesn't have to suck down cannon ball after cannon ball.
  • Thanks for the positive feedback and advice. The Frogcats are going to get a large "gnashy" sabretoothed version to complement the small ones - the idea is that they will power up like Battlecat in He-Man.
