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.

    Hello, folks I'll be attending a tournament in a week, and figured I'd post some progress shots and do an old fashioned hobby blog to keep me motivated. It's almost there! I'd love to hear any suggestions!

    Singapore is GMT+8 so your afternoon slot is my evening. If only I still had the ability to stay awake for your night slot - kids take that out of you. Should be ok for Friday. Will let you know today for the two other days.

    @Mr.Gobbo I missed that bit. That is breathtaking ignorance and arrogance. Lockdown put me back on anti-depressants and beta blockers, for many of the reasons you gave, attitudes like this make me sick. I would have achieved far more Work for the BGT
