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.

    WotDG, DL, ID, DE?! Whats up with this "all bad factions first" policy ey?!

    Probably they were all 'too heavy metal' which was their worst offender... :P

    So 4 neutral factions has been undertaken to be redone

    And removing 'dark, comic-like, bigger-than-life and heavy metal feeling from WDG has been one of the design goals. I got this as an official response...

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Kapten Kluns

    I guess that it makes the faction more relatable and humane, with a type of more realistic story telling but at the cost of the faction being a threat, its similar for DL

    JimMorr

    At the cost of faction original character I am afraid...

    Ah ah get it, they receive human motivations so we can relate, making it one big happy family essentially. Fine, but do some good guys to ok!

    Can we implement a filter similar to swear filter that will prevent people from discussing the team Vs single lists argument? Growing tired of these endless fights :P

    This is so cool para-bellum.com/?rgs=1 Is that complicated to make?

    Map with pop ups? No, not at all, the Para Bellum version just needs a lot of images. Making the images is most of the work.

    Gnasher are fine, but better than increasing the points or DS 3, I would limit the number we can take, like 0-50. I think right now they are what they should be, we just need to limit the number to avoid those +100 Gnasher armies. Do not forget that if…
