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.

    It's going to be so great.

    I see a very similar response. A lot of folks I played 8th with (on the other side of the country) are peeking out from their hobbit holes. Now is the time for 9th to strike and take some risks.

    To strike or to run? That is the question...

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    SkargitCrookfang

    If you strike, you fought- no matter the outcome, you gave it your all. If you run you lose the ground, here.

    In VS we have different approach... And BGT did a lot to purge metal warrior out if me

    Well, the void that 9th has been able to fill may not appear again. So far so good, but this may be a time to kick things up a notch.

    Void is gone. Rage and sorrow calmed down. Now we need a quality product.

    I agree on all but the big block of KingsGuard being too expensive. 24 with muso and champ is 565 (that's 23.5ppm). Suddenly they will take care even more things, enemy has to decide to spend more chaff into king with Deepwatch or them, and they are one…

    Would be fun if GW started to sell their old regiment boxes with 'compatible with 9th age' stamps on then. :) Don't think it'll ever happen but fun thought anyway.

    I love how some people didn't catch @Zamos sarcastic tone. :D I think small carno should get simply +1 armour save from mount. By the way, taurosaur's vigour doesn't work properly for carnosaur (he won't benefit from +1 hp).
