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.

    Hobboth? Sounds like small rat like creature, but not sure I am correct.

    Hobo-a-bit? Something like a teacher during the summer holiday period?

    Nonono, that's hoe-bit. Like, the metal part of a gardening tool.

    Hoe-bit sounds like a pornstar nickname. "Need seeds planted? I got tools."

    Love the new Hereditary Spell of the DL. Is it really +1 Strength for any spell cast earlier in this phase? Or do they have to be successfully casted?

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt

    Guessing successful

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Lich King

    Would be a bit broken otherwise. :D

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt

    yes - iirc the book will be clear and it will be successful casting

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt

    but you can build a list around spamming this spell and gaining tokens if you wanted - its pretty cool

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt

    actuall you should spam other spells to buff this one...?

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt

    Oh it is Rep...

    Mechanics, just bring us mechanics that reward some outplays and sacrification. Mobility work only if there is a goal. Specialisation units could be one key to reward the movement.
