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.

    @Tyranno reading your shiny tag...how about changing the whole thing from the golden horde to the green horde?

    @Tyranno not for me, but a new player question. Is now a good time to *startr=

    Or would it be better for new people to wait for beta to be completed

    So long as you aren't buying models around extreme lists, now is a perfectly good time to get into the army

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt

    Everyone is learning the new army now, so everyone is on a similar level

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Chronocide

    thanks.

    That's just my opinion, of course.

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Chronocide

    Nah,that's helpful. I got a buddy that might be getting to the point where he'd start T9A.

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Chronocide

    I think ID would suit him.

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Lich King

    So he's always starting fires, fan of slavery and wears beard proudly from his chin to his knees? :D

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Chronocide

    Well, he is a bald guy with an awesome beard.

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Chronocide

    I'd recommend regular dwarves, but I think he'd be more into an army that's good at everything, rather than one that only does somethings.

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Chronocide

    He'd probably like VS too, but that's a lot of models to paint...

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Chronocide

    Plus he's a man of the cloth, so he wants an army that doesn't remind him of work.

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Chronocide

    Or that's my understanding of him.

    Type of the animal is totally irrelevant as we don't have a model line so model whatever... Dread elves not being dark enough is the issue people keep bringing up, but forget that t9a isn't necessarily towing GW line. Yes there is this "dreadness"…

    @kompatybilijny I pretty much agree with your assessment. In the case of actually picking a unit of 10 archers, I am going with the assumption that I have a big Citizen Spear unit (30+), which can be a decent combat unit with Sliver. But I agree with…

    @bluu In an army without a big block of Sea Guard or Queen’s Guard, I can definitely see an argument for ONE small unit of Archers (10-12 with musician), especially if the army isn’t taking max Sea Guard Reapers... In small units, they also seem…
