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.

    Guys, my wife has started doing keto. Do you think I should bring her in to T9A. I feel like she has great potential!

    WotDG, DL, ID, DE?! Whats up with this "all bad factions first" policy ey?!

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    JimMorr

    Probably they were all 'too heavy metal' which was their worst offender... :P

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Pellegrim

    too heavy metal? don't get the reference

    Havent you heard Pellegrim? T9A has nog bad factions :) its all a matter of perspective.

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Kapten Kluns

    So 4 neutral factions has been undertaken to be redone

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    JimMorr

    And removing 'dark, comic-like, bigger-than-life and heavy metal feeling from WDG has been one of the design goals. I got this as an official response...

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Kapten Kluns

    I guess that it makes the faction more relatable and humane, with a type of more realistic story telling but at the cost of the faction being a threat, its similar for DL

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    JimMorr

    At the cost of faction original character I am afraid...

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Pellegrim

    Ah ah get it, they receive human motivations so we can relate, making it one big happy family essentially. Fine, but do some good guys to ok!

    There can still be shadow/midnight armour in the book. It would just be fore specific units such as Knights/characters. In my LAB proposal I have both AP resist armour for light/heavy. And then Midnight armour is on the knights and certain characters…

    It probably would have made more sense to improve external balance of top builds of all factions, then work on internal balance and bringing up multiple builds/different units to the same level as the aforementioned top build.
