Fantasy Battles: The 9th Age

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

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.

    5-10 years ago, they were miserably bad, but you could buy like bags of zombies and other cheap infantry for next to nothing. But everyone knew you had mantic.

    Mantics newer stuff is a lot better, but some of their old models are horrendous and not even worth their cheap price

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    proofyeq

    Plus I would say easily 1/3rd of the stuff I have bought from Mantic has been mis-packaged, although sometimes it was in my favor, but the one time I reported it I never recieved the missing items

    Their elves and dwarves are absolutely minging, but I like their undead. The Harpies look good painted but I bought a box and the were in such a state in terms of the preparation needed I put them on eBay after a while.

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Eldan

    Their undead are better now.

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Eldan

    But their skeleton used to be the worst. But you could get, like, 20 for half the price of a box of 10 from GW.

    How many years have passed since Sunna walked Vetia? Is it public knowledge?

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    BlueWill

    Any clue on 205? :D

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt

    "The oldest reference on Sunna in the background material is dated 59 A.S., the most recent date we find in the background material is 962 A.S."

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Lich King

    Doesn't this mean it's about 900 years ago since Sunna walked Vetia?

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Karak Norn Clansman

    Yes, it does.

    I'm waiting for my mantic giant from their vanguard kickstarter should be shipped now. I'll tell if it's bad or good.

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Lich King

    yes, please

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Lich King

    he looks amazing. and he is what i would call a giant. the GW giant is more likely a large infantry model nowadays xD

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    matrim

    Yeah, it looked good on the campaign photos was cheap and also wasn't a GW product

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt

    @Lich King: Thanks

    A.S. stands for Anno Solis - it is written somewhere in the Rulebook background :)

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Lich King

    No problem. ;)

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    JimMorr

    Could stand out more ;) An introductory line like "Welcome to Lands of Vetia 966 A.S. It is 966 since goddess Sunna descended to land of men bringing new hope and marking beginning of the new Age. Age of Mankind. The 9th Age"

    Aye.
