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.

    Just as long as we get a viable peasant list - lets be honest, KoE has never been about cav.

    I would like to see a "revolutionary" peasent option that has bonuses vs Cavalry.

    Chronocide

    But I don't think they'll actually do that. That's why I'm not in charge of KoE.

    Personally, I'm looking forward to getting to play an all-chariot and monster KoE army.

    That is what all the KoE players have been asking for, right?

    The giant on the even more giant horse, yeah, obviously what KoE players are looking for :D

    Did you know that Toenail clippers will cut pewter? been using them as snips for a few days because I can't find my snips.

    How well do they hold up? Not tool much dulling or chipping? Because that would be considerably cheaper to buy than real tools.

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Chronocide

    no damage so far, but they cut on a convex angle, so certainly not a placement. And then the "jaws" are only so wide, so limitation there.

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Chronocide

    With thicker sections, I've had to cut to thin, and then bend back and forth to break off.

    I uploaded a few more pictures of my models. They are in the gallery now

    Not the best lighting, but the best I can do before I get started on work today.

    placing model on A4 white paper and curving part of it against something as background helps a lot

    I'll do that after work. Thanks!

    love the minis, lawgnome! if you ever put them on a lazysusan and shoot a video of them rotating (with Jims blank background), i could even try to turn them into a 3D model! : D

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    lawgnome

    That would definitely be interesting. I'll see if I can manage that for you.

    I feel that Cyclopi could be good with just a little work (like allowing them to actually move+fire). But right now I find them very sub-par as a package. Oddly the best use I got out of mine was using them in combat, as their 5++ was an absolute…

    I feel Cyclops is just a missed opportunity for BH. Its rule is so bad, they continued to chip away point value to make it more appealing but people generally just pass them from the entry. They are at a point where a BH giant with beer barrel option…

    I actually think KoE core cavalry is great- KA is very solid for their rules, having a base of archers and men at arms make sense, average knights is perfect fit for the army. x-1 limits builds, and grails have that when you play warmachines…

    Not before LAB, so you're safe for a solid 2 years I'd say (just my personal view). Mines are all magnetized! (But the whole army is sitting on a shelf since end of last year anyways...)

    It’s a valid topic, but the problem isn’t necessarily the “core-tax” but rather the overlapping of function. With KoE we have aspirants (weak knights with lances) realms (better knights with lances) Grails (best knights with lances) Now the function…
