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.

    I agree that it is a bit counter-intuitive that regaining hit points results in less attacks, but I see why that design decision was made. The way it is, its current number of attacks depends strictly on the number of HP it has lost, so no additional…

    I must say, that I really like the concept of the hydra so far: - Regrowing heads are very suiting and it even makes it former versions appear uninspired and lacking. - It's Breath Attack is taking a good direction. I'd just like to know why "toxic"…

    This Hydra is fantastically fluffy. Poison Attacks reminds me of the General’s Compendium, and the Cut One off Rule will synergize amazingly with Rage... confused by those that can’t see this. 2 of these, a couple of those Bolt Throwers, and the Spear
