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.

    Sounds about right. I've played TT D+D campaigns where 'kill the plot important NPCs' was a recurring theme

    I also messed up a Night Below campaign by being the only character to survive the whole thing, but as a Priest of Chaos, I'd been calling the plot NPCs weird things,

    so by the time we found "Jelinith" that "Towster" had sent us to look for, no one knew them as anything other than Gelatin and Toaster, and no one knew we'd completed our objective

    That deamons do not have a strenght in combat does not mean they are bad at it, at mainly points out that deomons do not have a single trait in combat they focus on, some unit is good at the first turn, other in grinding, another in charging and so forth.
