Fantasy Battles: The 9th Age

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.

    Hey! A while ago I found a tool where you could make a card which detailed a units rule with the new format, and even choose a background for it. Anyone knows what I'm talking about?

    So the primary problem I have work the hotfix is when units which have been balanced and untouched for over a year get a whack. They clearly weren't a problem, or they'd have been touched in 1.2 .x or 1.3.x or even earlier. To suddenly nerf them now…

    As ACS I would like to put out a general thank you to the SA community for not being the HBE community. The lack of dumpster fires makes my life so much easier and means I can spend more time trying to get the issues fixed.
