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.

    Now that I'm thinking about it, I kinda want to see a skull cross section that shows the beard as more of an organ than hair normally is.

    The meme makes no sense. It's an ogre.

    Well the picture was found in a google search for dwarves, so it was probably a dwarf...

    Maybe the lammmassu would work better if it had all hex spells: corruption of tin, the rot within, cascading fire, the wheel turns, and riddle of the lammassu could be: The model is a Wizard Adept that knows 2 out of 4 spells: corruption of tin, the rot

    I had already accounted for the best weapon, sorry for omission of text. You can hunt the fde too, when it loses a wound or two it can’t engage anything with decent agi as it’ll die before it swings. These things all have pros and cons

    You already pay a pretty hefty premium for these movements benefits. To make a comparison is not always deemed appropriate but if it is not only within the same book, but within the same sub species perhaps it isnt so worthless. Take the fde, 455pts 6a,…
