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.

    Thanks for the work you put into compiling and commenting. I thought the same about Abrasus' list. I think a lot of EoS players love the Inquisitor and were excited to see an EoS list with two of them on the top place of a bigger tourney. A bit…

    As I've said above, I think these numbers kinda don't matter, at least for the purposes of whether a group should try the game. Those numbers are good and interesting to look at, sure. But I think the idea that these numbers allow one to forecast the…

    Hello all, I've been playing several variations of knight builds, and have found knightly orders lacking. So I had the idea of coming up with some unique knightly orders to both add some fluff background and some fun mechanics for the battlefield. Here…

    i just wonder how making expectations to Old World should be eager for a "very competitive comunity". GW never released game with such aim, so I'm perplexed. Maybe they like the fluff after all?

    Has anyone developed an opinion on the Archwizard rule? I’m going to borrow a DL army to give it a spin with this supplement.
