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.

    A unit with light troops in the flank never gets a big flank bonus regardless of how many models are in each rank?

    Correct: They count as having 0 Full ranks, page 97.

    Personally I really like the design of Ootfh. IMO it is one of the best designs in the book. Price is a bit high, yes, but my God it is fun to play with some fairly easy understandable rules with many possibilities. Also the boosting of dragon and the…

    Cyclops, Gortach and Jabber are all 10pts to expensive for my taste, Jabber even 15 (on Jabber something of the following is missing if price stays, imho: 1 more attack, 1 more AP or poison on the breath weapon). I will try lists without monsters if…

    I don’t think highborn elves should lean into Armor as a pure strength. But it should be on the table for a general defensive traits strength. The problem is that one elf book has “muder-y, heavy damage dealing fighter” elves and another has…

    @Happy Aspid You can take it out with lots of evo and thama spells. If in cc i think hounds do the best job killing it. Out of general bubble its only dis 7 i think so with re roll to wound s unit of 5-10 can do a bunch of wounds on it for sure.
