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.

    That's antarctic-themed, not arctic. Also, I encourage everyone to use giant blind albino cave penguins from the nighted, penguin-fringed abyss.

    touché, Eldan! Indeed, there are no penguins in the North pole. But is it the same for T9A? :D

    You could also get some plasticard or even PVC sheets in your local DIY, cut or saw them to the correct size and then sand the edges in an angle. That's how i do it often ;)

    Frosty aura should just be a -1 to-hit modifier to enemy units in base contact. I'll take consistency over flashy situational abilities any day.

    I’ve never got that special rule to work, any player with half a brain can see what you’re doing from about a mile away. Needs changing, I like Klaudel’s proposal

    @cptcosmic it is rather that the lists you claim are optimal place bottom and the lists you consider weird place on top. It might be grand statistical fluke or maybe you do not understand that well what is a good list. I lean towards the latter.
