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.

    Chronocide has consistently been looking for ways for our setting to increase its distance with GW's IP. It's all what he was saying, that there are good ideas there to help us enrich our setting by drawing inspiration from a diversity of sources.

    Warhammer Fantasy is also generic: There are demons, vampires, dwarves, elves, orcs and trolls. Knights and landsknechts, dinosaurs and rats. It's built to be recognizable at first sight.

    It sure branches off into its own style and quirks beyond that, but most people can instantly get what each army are all about. It builds off common stuff from myths, history, folklore and modern fantasy. This is a core part of its appeal, and a consciously rejected part of Age of Sigmar.

    So even if AoS succeeds with building up a great background which lots of people like, the Old World is far more likely to stay better beloved in the long run. Because of its generic fundamentals.

    It plucks strings in the viewer on first sight. Having a generic base is not a bad thing for a setting, especially if it delivers its very own spice and twists on top of that to keep it interesting.

    i agree with the above! i suppose i saw a difference between having a healthy generic setting and being a "super generic copy of X". but it surely must have to do with my fixations on language use. sorry for being annoyingly picky, i take that back : )

    Well something to keep in mind is that the Dread Elf new rule "Alpha Strike" just got spoiled. It's basically "+1 to wound in first round of combat"(subject Alpha and Beta changes of course). Perhaps even other ways in the army to make it last second…

    You could also think about the option of making peasants actually good? Personally I love peasants but currently an all peasant army seems like a really weak version of EoS. Edit: Not saying an efficient all peasant army would be the goal, but it…

    You guys keep forgetting that there’s already an official description of each army and their play styles. Infantry is mentioned and therefore can’t disappear. Nor do I think it would anyway, but still.
