The Rules

The 9th Age - Version 1.2

This site uses cookies. By continuing to browse this site, you are agreeing to our Cookie Policy.

Welcome to Fantasy Battles: The 9th Age, your new fantasy wargame. These are the rules.
They are free and supported by many thousands of active members.

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.

Thank you to all who have been involved. Your deeds will live on in tales of heroism and infamy.

Now let’s go out and play some games.

Till we meet in battle,
The 9th Age Team
