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.

    I believe Bollywood could make a proper 40k movie. Completely bonkers and over the top.

    GW's own Ultramarine flick is a boring sleep pill. :P

    Of course, Bollywood's excesses even for the world of cinema is less surprising once one consider the wildly imaginative mythology of India

    I've been forced to watch Bollywood channel every evening since my sister-in-law came from the village last week. What a change from the usual Turkish melodrama we watch with my wife

    I mean, your complaint seemed to be about the fires of industry limit. That limit is there for gameplay reasons, to prevent spamming and all that. One way or another, that limit will be there, because otherwise the game becomes unfun.

    @Jarec Perhaps the best question is this: What combination could you use in the slim book that you can't now? (And then the follow up questions for everyone are: what has changed about the army/that entry that has resulted in the change to the limit?…

    I suspect the source of the data is the main reason why some players dispair and others are more hopeful. The Ocho and Cinco both are team tournaments, which can seriously change how the armies are used. In a team event you want your team to get the…

    To be honest, the top armies should also be brought down a bit, so we are talking about 5% or about 200 points, good part of these should propably be adjustments in core to get rid of the core tax. In Austria the tournament scene is super small (I would…
