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.

    In 1.3, can a Scourge of Wrath with Eternal Sword get Weapon Skill 11? I can't find anything in the rulebook saying you can't go aboove 10, and there's nothing written on the sword either

    HumanClay

    Found in in rulebook! Another for 1.3, for scoring purpose and breakthrough, does a unit have to be completely within the deployment zone with all models? Or is it enough one model

    In general, in all armies. The point limit of units including upgrades should not be so high. At most units of about 800 or even less should be possible.

    Basically my question is if it is enough for you if rules issues are solved than totally freezed or if you want your book to become at least partly balanced.

    I'd rather have them scoring than R5 to be honest. Even if they had a rule like only scoring whilst passing the stupidity check or so.

    Defensive +3 would also great help foot characters. Which probably could use some help. But this isn’t really up for debate right now since the rules are locked for the next couple of years.
