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.

    Quote from Cicciuz: “The current version is less “tanky” than the previous version, fact. ” Fact? Did you do the math? Non Multi Wound: New Hydra is 20% more tanky against ALL type of attack except Off 5. Old Hydra is 11% more tanky against Off 5 Against…

    @Mr.Gobbo I missed that bit. That is breathtaking ignorance and arrogance. Lockdown put me back on anti-depressants and beta blockers, for many of the reasons you gave, attitudes like this make me sick. I would have achieved far more Work for the BGT

    I see a lot of people complaining about the handler being useless. If I'm in the camp of Berti, thinking the 2 attacks have a correct quality to be mentioned (+1 to hit, +1 to wound), I understand that the rules don't give the feeling they do something…

    I do not know if you know it guys, but... Except for situations when Hydra is killed in one shot LAB rules give same expected value of lost HP as previous (the only requiremet is that it has wounds to recover). But with some bad statistics (rolling…
