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.

    Okay I mean there is the message "invite friends to play with you" but I guess that's just for well.. invite however you please kinda thing :D

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt

    hello, i have still the problem with UB2 to load game data. do sombody know how to fix it? thx

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt

    Yeah right, i guess it just refers to "spreading the word", no real "invite" button here... sonny, can you tell us more about the problem? Are you a PRO user? Trying to load a map or an army? Your own or somebody's else?

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt

    I was a pro member before the last update. I cannot even login cause the error, Game Data failed to load! occure when launching UB2. I deleted and reinstalled UB several times and switched off virusscan, but nth helped. I ve read some people had same problems,.th.
