Welcome to the world of The Ninth Age


Welcome to The 9th Age, your fantasy wargame universe, made by hobbyists for the community of hobbyists.

Here, you will find the rules of our games (T9A: Fantasy Battles and T9A: Quick Starter) as well as community support tools and background documents about the universe where T9A games take place. We also provide translations of our documents in French, German, Italian, Korean, Polish and Spanish (with even more translations in the works!). All of these are free and supported by many thousands of active members.

  • Quick Starter (T9A:QS) is designed for faster games, with less experienced players in mind.
  • Fantasy Battles (T9A:FB) is a more elaborate game, designed for more experienced players, also used in competitions up to international championship.


We have 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 28mm models from any model company. We have created a game that is both balanced and fun. Don't believe us? Try it for yourselves.

Now let's go out and play some games!

Till we meet in battle,
The 9th Age Team
