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.

    hi guy quick rule question does Star Metal Alloy work with gigantic mounts (dragons)?

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Prag

    Imperial Rangers from EoS have two shots each. Will 2nd rank only have 1 shot each?

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Squirrelloid

    afaik, ranged units with multiple shots don't lose shots to being in the second rank. They are not 'supporting attacks', but regular attacks

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Kathal

    they shoot with two shots from the second row.

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    theunwantedbeing

    star metal doesn't work on a gigantic mount because they don't benefit from armour equipment of their riders

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    N3okorrales

    starmetal alloy was literally designed for dragons thats why it says BEARES MODEL. so yes it does work on dragons

    Depends on the rest of the army and your opponent. This is not point and click game :P You can even make a 25+ Spiked shield block do wonders, if the rest of your list supports it.
