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.

    There is no topic. But if anyone feels like joining me on WoW (French private server Way of Elendil), i'd be happy to smash a few kobolds with him.

    If anyone's bored, I got the WDG section of the wiki up to date (I think), so if someone could verify that it looks good, that would be helpful.

    Sounds like you were waiting for the DB (Deutsche Bahn)

    Funny thing is, both, DB and ID, use trains and are late, but in the end they are reliable

    or for Abidjan urban train to start building. I found a book talking about it in my grandfather's library, dated 1982: « Soon there will be a train ». 2020 is here, they're still talking about it. For a siilar running gag, check Brussels RER.

    last year at BeLaMa i made the mistake of coming by train. DB said: 183 minutes late.

    "The train delay has inreased to 730 min. It is now officialy considered lost"

    ID trains are powered by slavery and demons and they are still better than DB.

    Shieldbearers doesn’t make much sense on a king, because you probably want to buy ancestral grudge anyway, and by the time you add shieldbearer and grudge you might as well pay the extra 60pts for 2 extra hp and an extra grudge.

    So interesting results. Our team placed 2nd of 10, carried significantly by our captain who scored 97 out of our 231 battle points. My goal was to keep steady at 10-10 most games, with the exception of the last, when I knew we needed several big wins to…
