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.

    Interesting fact: I'ven oticed that for many old warhammer units (I was working on the model library), the Total War: Warhammer Wiki now shows up in the results before the GW webshop.

    Noticed the total war thing too. But I think it's more than PC games have always had more online content than physical games, just because online is historically the domain of the PC.

    the grace of the ambush is that while the rival is fearing the front line the real blow comes from behind, like the Germans to the Romans, the ambush should serve to fight advantageously not to score or shoot only, perhaps it should be less predictable…

    So, you have used different army compositions ..what would you say so far about them ?
