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.

The latest issue of the 9th Scroll is here! You can read all about it in the news.

    Up north it was the 'eavy metal variant (tung = heavy, to pun).

    Old Swedish (Tungel = celestial body), Old Norse (Tungl = moon) proto-Germanic (*Tungl of unsure origin.)

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt

    Dialectal, of course

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt

    Is that where the metal Tungsten gets its name?

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Karak Norn Clansman

    No. It's just tung+sten = heavy stone

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Karak Norn Clansman

    Similar sounds but different content. :)

    Just came upon dwarven metal on Youtube: youtube.com/watch?v=-qF1EQXIG1c

    Nice, more like dwarven folk though ;)

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt

    Russian has kept both Indo-European words for moon : « Luna » (derived from the same word as « Licht » in German) and « Miesiats » (which mostly today means a « Month », not the « Moon » per se).

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Happy Aspid

    Small addition - miesiats is also a word for NOT full moon.

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Karak Norn Clansman

    Two words are better than one. Thanks for sharing this. :)

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt

    Switzerland is boring in that regard. It's just "Mond". The only interesting thing we have and the Germans don't is that we call the new moon "empty moon" (Leermond)

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt

    Poland has interesting one. There are miesiąc (no longer used in this meaning) and księżyc

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt

    Księżyc - heir of ksiądz (chief)

    Nice one!

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt

    do you actually pronounce that « Kshyenjyts » ?

    Historical accuracy is not about weapon x beating y. It is about tactic x beating y. Romans defeating phalanx does not mean sword and shield defeating spear. Otherwise Spaniards would dominate XVI Century battlefields with rodeleros.

    Replied to the thread Strange set of rules about Duels! Rules team please answer!.

    Basically all those super complex rules can be shortened (just for understanding) to: Duel is possible between characters or champions in same combat if and only if their units are directly in touch. Simple as that.
