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.

    Now that I'm thinking about it, I kinda want to see a skull cross section that shows the beard as more of an organ than hair normally is.

    The meme makes no sense. It's an ogre.

    Well the picture was found in a google search for dwarves, so it was probably a dwarf...

    And an Ogre is just a big dwarf anyway....

    That’s not quite my point. It should absolutely be forced, in a sense like, if you play orcs and goblins you’re forced to play orcs and goblins and not all giants and no orcs or goblins

    @Chronocide But it’s not. That is the way factions are looked at by designers. if that were to change then why even have factions? Why not just a pool of units and players can take whatever they want and mix things up? Why even have different races?…

    Covid really threw our artist's schedules around so hopefully we won't see these sorts of delays on future books. I believe one of the last artists submitted his work so LAB work should begin shortly :love:

    Maybe the lammmassu would work better if it had all hex spells: corruption of tin, the rot within, cascading fire, the wheel turns, and riddle of the lammassu could be: The model is a Wizard Adept that knows 2 out of 4 spells: corruption of tin, the rot
