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.

    You mean 9.B.a.4? You can charge either target only if the second target also flees. I think about situation when second target stands but fleeing unit is lucky enough to be ping-ponged back into old spot...

    Sounds like bad play from the active player

    @JimMorr Yeah you are right, but as Lagerlof said: If that ping-pong can happen, the active player should not declare a second charge on the fleeing unit (or capitalize on it and don't redirect for a sure kill)

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    JimMorr

    You are right... However the fact that fleeing unit can get into charger path and prevent a charge just does not feel right

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    JimMorr

    I would appriciate extra complexity in form of additional charge reactions in place of the 'flee engineering'

    It is a lot of times mentiones that our game is the best balanced tt on the market. When I have told that to other guys they sometimes said that this was also was told about KoW and that in KoW all armies felt the same when playing. How would you counter…

    Your welcome to come by, it would be nice o meet you. Based on what I am seeing there will be about 6 guys there, so you might be able to get an early game at 10, but you're more likely to get a game at 1 as most players have already scheduled an game…

    Sorry, my critics are for the official book. Yes you are right, there is a HUGE potential in the boo, as well as KOE, windelow's homebrew is a proof for that. But our official book is a mess. Grail character is not the same with unit, questing characters…
