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.

    agree for griffon and phenix. Not sure what core chariot would bring in term of internal balance. -10pts wont fix lancers. Except if you think they want to only grab objo once more

    I also would like to say thanks to the team. I love having a fair and even game. Once the fluff is in then it will be even more engrossing but as it is now I cant wait to play games.

    One more thing, martial discipline is really under estimated. It is better than parry most of the time due to ingrained high ds. Having layered msu/mmu and fleeing with the first line is a death knell for a lot of opponents. Parry doesnt help the major…

    One thing to remember is that cremation is hard. You need enormous amounts of firewood, or worse, coal, to wholly burn a human body. Even more so if you want the bones burnt too. It would mean a substantial investment of money or, for poorer people,…
