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.

    Haven't played this list yet but I think it's possible to play it without bsb but. 1. You need damage reduction 2. And healing from druidism. 3. You probably need to roll those stubborn break tests, so it'll be much more reliable to have bsb. Laik might…

    That's a very good point, can't find the base size, but it's made for 5E D&D, for which I found these base sizes: monster-sizes.jpg So that's most likely a 4" round base, so just over 100mm. The things you learn in library work. :thumbsup:

    Quote from Little Joe: “Steamforged Games Epic Encounters: Swamp of the Hydra: medium ” Wow! I am seriously considering buying this beast and use it as my 'mist leviathan'. It looks too big for a 50x100 mm base. But a 100x100 mm base will work, I guess.
