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.

    you should ask his biographers... oh no you cant. while peeking into his life and actions, they all turned INSANE. that mustve contributed to the reputation, i guess.

    Notoriety is another word for Infamy... They're both fame for misdeeds.

    Infamy is a bit more extreme than notoriety.

    I think Map 1 tends to result in some boring games. The impassable in the middle coupled with the ruins in the bottom left, can make it very hard to try to play on the left side of the impassable, and I have seen a lot of games that essentially come down…

    I just don't really understand why the moct bsb focus all you attention. If it's really a problem just remove the bsb option or increase the cost of the bsb option (100 pts). Problem solved.

    In case the exec board decided that a design change for MoCT is necessary, then sure I welcome this. But in that case I expect a whole lot of further design changes across the other armies as well, because I see elements of similar severity elsewhere. I…
