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.

    Political debate, just letting people know it was mostly isolated here.

    Not wanting mass shootings isn’t really political is it. Surely as a human being not having mass shootings is a good thing?

    Anyway rant over I’ll be good. X

    Not wanting mass shootings is reasonable. Banning legally acquired guns from law-abiding citizens is something else.

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    micdicdoc

    But if vanilla law-abiding citizens didn't have guns, you wouldn't have nearly so many mass shootings.

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt

    wtf do law-abiding citizens need these guns for?

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Chronocide

    Well the mass shootings happen because our media glorifies it as a way to kill yourself. And most mass shootings do not feature legally acquired guns,

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Chronocide

    And law abiding don't need guns, but they also shouldn't be keen to give up the few rights they have.

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Chronocide

    And the number of mass shootings has nothing to do with the number of law abiding people.

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Chronocide

    Statistically speaking us citizens are remarkably safe with firearms if you calculate how many we have in circulation and how many actual deaths.

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Chronocide

    And car "accidents" remain a larger source of death in the usa

    Though this Covid19 might change the statistics....

    "Well the mass shootings happen because our media glorifies it as a way to kill yourself. And most mass shootings do not feature legally acquired guns" - neither of these are categorical

    "And the number of mass shootings has nothing to do with the number of law abiding people" - yeah, it's to do with the ease of accessibility of these firearms

    "Statistically speaking us citizens are remarkably safe with firearms if you calculate how many we have in circulation and how many actual deaths." - lol, are you serious?
