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.

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

    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.

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

    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)

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

    I like most of your ideas. Especially about behemoth, since it is the most bland entry in the book in my oppinion. I think it is great idea to give him something that ignores or reduces AP. Regarding his fluff and his basesize, he should have something…

    The solution to these (and other) issues is to minimise the ontology of the game. There is no need to make "has plate armour" into a part of the game's ontology. Why would you want to do it?

    That's how I've always done it. Swiss works but with 10 "players" it is hard to make work. Really if you guys want to try swiss that is fine by me. It's going to still have goofy matches like 3rd vs 6th and such because the pool is so small.
